Valvoline white bottle is 2.99 at Menard's no rebate needed. Also the normal price on Valvoline dex vi is 4.67 making it a good non sale price if you dont want to buy online or can't find any on sale.

I'd use some SuperTech in it, Walmart has it for $8-$9 a jug right now if you order online and pickup in store. That and a Carquest filter would be good
