That sounds more like Facebook oil to me...

And automatically "update" your oil whenever it feels you need it done, whether you wanted it to or not. frown

I hope the [censored] not. And I hardly use them to prevent that from happening.

When being the richest just isn't enough!

I saw that the other week or so and just presumed they were already selling it. Didn't bother to check, nor do I care enough to.... I was surprised that no one here had mentioned it before or tried it yet but it makes sense since it's not actually available.

Which Warren? There are two Warren outfits blending private-label oils, y'know.

Quick Google search after seeing this thread found a variety of AmazonBasic oil including conventional and synthetic in all of the popular grades. https://engineoil.api.org/Directory/EolcsResultsDetail?accountId=1&companyId=10297&resultsUrl=%2FDirectory%2FEolcsResults%3FaccountId%3D1&Products-page=12&Products-orderBy=BrandName-desc This also shows it's "sister" oils.

Dang, my Christmas holiday project was to write an e-book on "how to choose your oil off Amazon". Got half way through it and work got in the way. Too late now.

Good catch. Wonder when this will show up for sale and what the pricing may be. Bezos may want aggressive pricing to elbow his way into the market real time. If so, I'll buy.

If it is priced right, I'd be all over it. But I'll bet I can still get better deals locally between clearances and rebates. If I can have a good quality synthetic oil prime shipped to my house for a great price that means I can let me stockpile of clearance oil dwindle. :)

AmazonBasics is for the most part, the best bang for the buck for things like cables. If this oil is the same as ST and the others WPP bottles up for other private labels, it'll be fine.

If recent trends mean anything, I'd expect this to be listed at the same price as SuperTech at Walmart.

Do the Base Oil Interchange rules allow a syn-blend and full-syn to share the same dexos1 license number? The Amazon 5w30 matches the dexos1 Gen2 license number (D10386HG025) for: 7-Eleven Full Synthetic Accel Full Synthetic Capital Bulk Full Synthetic (Warren Distribution) Casey's Drive Professional Series Full Synthetic Federated Auto Parts Full Synthetic FVP Full Synthetic Holiday Full Synthetic Kum & Go Full Synthetic Lubritek Full Synthetic Maximo Full Syn MAG1 Meijer Full Synthetic Mighty Engine Guard Full Synthetic Mighty Engine Guard Full Synthetic Blend (note it has the SAME dexos1 license as their Full-Syn product!!) Parts Master Synthetic Prime Guard Full Synthetic Proline Full Synthetic Roughneck Lubricants Full Synthetic STP Full Syn SuperTech Full Syn UNO Ultra Full Syn XP Full Syn
