So I stopped at 3 Walmarts and an AA today looking for API SN Synthetic oil. Both had plenty of choices in quart sizes. But, as soon as you go to the cost effective Gallon/5 Qt jugs, only Walmart brand is available in SN.

Wallyworld had bulk Dino in SN, just not Synthetic. Is this just a timing issue since Syn sells slower so older stock still, or are the oil companies sill sitting on stock reserves, so they are filling bulk jugs with SM stock trying to entice buyers to use it up.

I was hoping to get Mobil1 in SN, so I could get 2 UOA's back to back with the SM then SN ratings for your viewing pleasure. Not looking good as I am due now for a change now.

Also, WW had Bulk Syntech for $20/5 qt - SM.

Yeah it is the same at all of the stores around here too. I talked to the guy at AA and I guess they have a warehouse that is loaded with SM and that has to sell before the SN is stocked. I'm sure it is the same for everybody. I was bummed at too.

The only oil that I've seen that is SN is PYB at WM. Even Kmart is trying to get rid of the Dino PYB SM oil by having a sale for $2.40 a quart of PYB. All they have on the shelf is PYB 10W-40 SM.

WM is the only place that I've seen SN oil and it is just PYB Dino.

You could always print out the Ad from Kmart for the PYB $2.40 and go to WM. WM will honor the sale price at Kmart and you get yourself some SN Dino oil. SN PYB is going for about $4.00 a quart at WM so you would save $1.60 a quart and get SN Dino PYB to boot!
