Oil is probably nothing special. Peak has never produced any stellar products.

We have determined that Warren makes and packages the Peak dino oil for them. You might want to put in a call to Warren, and see if they supply the synthetic also.

I would bet it is VERY similar to the Walmart Supertech product, I noticed they have a new full synthetic in a clear bottle.

I'm running their dino product in a couple cars, I like that it is a little thinner, my engines run more quiet with it. I paid $8.99 for 5 quarts.

Doubt its gonna blow your dress up!! That doesnt sound all that cheap to me, pep boys had m1 on sale $4 day after thanks giving. And it was the only store i encounterd that day NOT busy. Lets do the math.....5 quarts no name syn $4=$20, i buy a M1/Bosch d+ filter for $13 + the $20=$33, or i can go to Orielys get 5 quarts Castrol Edge and M1 filter=$33/this months special

You know Pep Boys had a deal on the Peak Synthetic on Black Friday as well right? 5 quarts plus fram filter for $12. Even if you just threw away the fram, it was a great deal

This oil doesn't appear any more special than Napa Synthetic -- which is often on sale for $2.99/$3.29/qt.
