I had a Ford truck that I beat on hard in mud pits holding to the limiter for 5 mins straight and never had an engine issue. I would use it without worry.

I refuse to use it anymore being it is priced too close to good name brand oils. It is not a bad oil though. I used to run it in my diesel because it was a ton cheaper.

Not to mention you are supporting wal mart even more when using their in store brands. If you must shop at wal mart, pick brands that are not tailored to them exclusivly. Sorry for the rant.

SuperTech is a fine oil, no matter which blend you are getting (depending on where in the country you live). It is SN rated and a good product. My dad uses SuperTech conventional oil and ST filters almost exclusively and all of his engines are in tip-top shape. As another board member just posted, the ST price is very close to the price of the big name brands. But if you wanna save a few bucks and still get a good oil, use ST with confidence.

Its wal-mart oil blended to the lowest possible cost point. If not for API SN, they would blend it cheaper. API keeps quality up, if you trust it as oil.

I figure there are so many good options besides it...

It's either a Warren oil or Mobil. Good stuff either way.

I`d want the best oil in that Diamond Star high performance engine,and M1 HM imo is the best bang for the buck oil.

I'm in Memphis and the super tech bottles are identical to the exxon oil bottles. So that seems to be the supplier in my area. It's what I'm using now. Will change out at 6k and run a UOA. My only complaint is that it burns faster than any other oil I've used and this is the second time I have observed this so I probably won't use it again unless I get a very good UOA.

If it is burning faster than there may well be a better choice. Volatility relates to quality.

Please elaborate. I'm assuming you mean your engine literally burns or otherwise 'uses' the oil. Around here however, the locals define 'burning' as how quickly the oil turns dark, which really doesn't define volatility.

I'm referring to burn-off/leak rate.
