So I was on a business trip about 2 hours from home today... stopped by local WM and found a stash of Ultra 5w-30! All were SN with dates from 10-12 to 2-13. Funny thing is, they were on the clearance rack but had no price on them. I inquired with a worker... he couldn't help... got manager... manager didn't seem to care. Asked how 99 cents for the quarts and 3.99 for the jugs sounded. He said they were not stocking Ultra anymore and he was sick of seeing them... had a really apathetic attitude.

Anyway... he asked how many I wanted and I said all of them. He looked at me like I had a mental disorder... I just smiled and thanked him. It was a little embarrassing walking out with that many in a cart, but I could care less.

15 x $3.99 = $59.85
10 x $0.99 = $9.90
Paying $69.75 for 17 Ultra oil changes = priceless

P.S. I'm still pi$$3d at Pennzoil for their shenanigans with Ultra!

That's like 150,000 miles worth of changes if you go 10,000 mile per OCI !

Ultra should be able to go even farther, with a UOA to check it out.
So there is a possibility that is 200,000 miles worth of oil!

HOLY TOLEDO!
