Do they have RP gear oils there as well? The 2 Walmarts here where I live don`t have any RP products.

Hey, what Wal-Mart( ie; town and state ) did you see it at? Any chance you could drop back in and get me a batch number off a bottle or two? Wal-Mart is not an authorized distributor of Royal Purple and the company( RP )wants it to stop. There are some wholesalers that are selling to a few Wal-Mart stores on the side and RP is trying to put a stop to it. RP themselves told Wal-Mart NO at SEMA!

I do not work for RP and I am not affiliated with them in anyway. I just happen to know a couple guys who work there that told me this. They asked if I personally saw some RP at a Wal-Mart or read when someone posted they saw it to please try and get at the least a store location and even better a batch # off a couple bottles.

You can PM me with the info, post it here, or even e-mail me( gsthundernh@yahoo.com ). Give me your personl info as well and I will include that in case they want to send any kind of merchandise "thank you". Not trying to take credit for your find. Just trying to help them out as they asked me to do when I said some people had bought it at Wal-Mart.

BTW - $6 is high. I only pay %5.75.

Only one of my super Walmarts stocked Royal Purple. It seems to come and go though. I haven't seen it for a while. Walmart also seems to have dry spells when they are almost completely out of oil. Nothing but the 10w-40's and grease left on the shelf.

That's very interesting. I didn't know that individual WM outlets had that much power. I thought the entity was all tied together....so how do they enter the SKU and stuff.....WM HQ must know this is happening.....just wonder-a-rating about it. Thanks for posting. (My WM and Super WM in Mill Creek/Lynnwood and near the casino no have RP)

My city has two Walmarts. One is a supercenter and the other is a large store,but no groceries. The supercenter has all the M1 varieties. 0W20-15W50. The smaller store only stocks M1 10W30.

Haven`t seen any RP though. I`ve only seen that at Orielly`s,Napa,and the local speed shop.

My WM has it, along with several other oils I wouldn't expect to see at WM, such as M1 0w20 & 0w40.

RP is over-priced, IMO. I've never seen a UOA where RP convinced me that I should be using it.

It was at the super WM in Valrico,FL.

Never seen it at my local WM. Went there today and they have a lot of Mobil stuff. Red cap 5 quart 5,000 mile stuff for $15 or something like that.

Last time (a few days ago) I was at the Stockton, CA Super WM, they had a few bottles of RP on the shelf.

I also have never seen a Royal Purple UOA that convinced me that I wanted to use it.
