I've searched for info in regards to "supertech synthetic oil", I was wondering if anyone has tried the supertech synthetic blend 10W-30, I know that it isn't a true synthetic, but it claims to perform better than any dino oil (on the bottle) and it's $1.63 a quart at the local Wallmart (cheaper than some of the conventional oils) If it's a blend then I'm assuming that at least 90% of the oil is regular supertech oil and about 10% supertech synthetic? Thoughts?

I've never seen the blend.

Just dino and synthetic!

They have a new synthetic 10W-30 that is API SL/ILSAC GF-3. Prior to that the only synth ST oil that met API SL/GF-3 was the 5W-30.

I think I would prefer the Chevron Supreme SL with "ISOSYN". You can usually find it at Wal-Mart, it has posted some impressive analysis results here, and it's $1.08 a quart. JMO [I dont know]

Actually I'd prefer the synthetic Super-Tech over any dino oil.

My engines have performed CONSIDERABLY better in the cold w/ the synth ST than with Pennzoil Dino oil.

As for wear/analysis - the jury's still out.

I know we've talked about Supertech synthetic on here, but he's referring to their blend.

Keep in mind that it'll only be a 10% group 3 base oil at best in that oil, so it's really not anything special. The group 3 based blends probably aren't much better than dino oils, but cost more.

I was thinking about using the Supertech 5W-30 blend in my 4.0L Wrangler (plow Jeep), or the Chevron Supreme as mentioned above. I am about ready to change it for the season (only used in winter). I figure the 5W will be better for cold weather startups. [Confused]

And a Supertech ST16 filter [Cool]

Go with the Chevron Supreme, Pennzoil, or Motorcraft before the Supertech. If you go with Dino-I would go with the 5W vs 10 W . Supertech makes a god filter though. Do a search under "Used Oil Analysis" to get some reports for the 4.0 L engine. [Smile]

Pour point -42
Visc. index 162
Low temp visc. <5786@-30

Here's the reference to the entire line. Pour point of the 10W30 v. 5w30 really sticks out as strange.

I have two cars serviced with walmart 5W30 blend, in the red plastic jug. I looked for the cheapest oil with the specs that meet the GMC and Ford requirements. One is a 97 taurus 3.0 with 105k and the other is a 2002 GMC Serria 5.3 with 12k. So far so good the taurus doesn't clang and bang and the GMC doesn't make wierd ticks on start up. Time will tell. I have an 88 chev pickup with 225K that has been services with the cheapest Walmart 10W40 oil for years, still runs good and uses about a qt every 4K or 5k miles. The GMC doesn't get driven every day so start ups are some times a week apart.
