Saw it as well the other day. Didn't buy it. Did you purchase it and see how thick it is by pouring some out?

"Does oil need to be stabilized?"

Of course. Then further thinned with mmo, but then rethickened with Lucas.

It's not a stabilizer i bet it's probably like a additive of some sort.

If I don't trust them enough to filter my oil, why would I trust them to "stabilize" it?

All the bad comments before anything is known about the "oil stabilizer" from Fram. What if it was just like ARX, I guess it would still find some way to fall on it's face. I for one ran those horrible orange can frams for many many years with zero problems, and I always thought when purchasing them it was a name I could trust, and did not know any better. I still feel to this day it is a trustworthy oil filter, however I now look for better deals, more filter for my money.

If I were running 3-5 k oil changes like many many people today are still doing, I would probably pick up a Fram at walmart with my oil just to save the hassle of going anywhere else looking for a filter.

Interesting, what did the bottles look like? I saw some years ago at Auto Zone, but that was the only place I had seen any.
