I always hear about how oils are going on clearance and you guys buy the entire stores stock for $.50/qt or something like that. I never see this near me.

I check out that section of this site dedicated to deals and drop by the locations of those chains said to have some dirt cheap oil that we happen to be passing in our daily travels.
Sometimes you score big and more often you don't but if you're there anyway, it's worth a stop and a look.

I have often wondered the same thing. I have never seen any oil below $2 a quart where I live, and even that was some non-SN gunk I wouldn't use as a weed killer. Speak to me oil gurus, share your ways.

You probably don't see any close-out oil because a local BITOG hoarder has already cleaned out the store. HAHA

Autozone is one of the best places to shop this time of year with $2/quart synthetic commonplace.

I just bought 10 quarts of Mobil 0W-20 super synthetic and a 5 qt jug of Castrol 0W-40 all for $2 a quart.

Left plenty on the shelf too.

you can pickup 5qt bottles of syn for about 10$ after rebates quite a few times a year.
I usually do amazon or walmart.

I don't either. Clearance oils in Canada are prohibited under NAFTA or something like that. wink Clearance prices here wind up being like a few percent off of regular price, which is way too high to matter.

You go there every month once and look for oil you need whether it is on sale.
For example I use in winter in BMW Mobil1 5W30 ESP, and it is on sale approx. once a year.
In summer I use Valvoline 5W40 MST< and it is on sale every 4-5 months.
SO I just go there and check and see if it is on sale, I stack up.

Actually, I check NAPA up here, too, not that I need to buy more oil right now. But, they do usually have something at a sensible price. Lately, they've had a few products on semi-permanent sale, and then switch the monthly big sale. They also have the Shell EcoBoxes up here, for those interested.

Of course, the C3 Pennzoil stuff is crudely listed as VW Diesel or something like that.

I asked a guy in O'Reilly's here in Ft. Myers. It's a new store. He said they never had those things there but he had experience with 2 other auto supply retailers. He said shops find out early and come in and take it all. I've never seen a clearance on oil.
NAPA sales are the best deal I know of with the special diesel oils but you have to search for them.

It's improved a bit up here, but our biggest problem was always oil specials at Canadian Tire, which begin at store opening. Usually, the old farts would be there at store opening, clear out the shelves, CT would have "limited quantities," and that would be that. To make matters worse, before we could readily check the specials online a day ahead, the paper ad would show up after the sale had already begun, with predictable results.
