I did a search but couldn't find anything newer than 2011. Threads from then indicate it's about the same as PYB?

Menards has cases for it on sale for $22, or $1.79 a quart. I was going to get a case of 5w20 for my '15 Cherokee, as it meets MS-6395 (I only care about that for warranty reasons). Is it a good oil for a 6k-7k interval? That's about what the OLM advises (I change it at 20% life).

Thanks!

There were a few recent threads where it was discussed, they're hard to find though. It's a good oil. Here's one of the more recent ones.

PQIA has tested it more recently, in 2016 for the 10w30 and 2013 for the 5w20

Seems like its a good oil and a good buy based on old responses.

I was gonna grab a few cases too and use it on the folks who ask me to maintain their cars but don't really care about it otherwise.

It's a good cheap oil in the same league as PYB, VWB.

You can run it all the way down to 0% on the OLM with no issues.

If this is the full syn, PQIA showed the 5w30 being almost identical to Amsoil OEM.

Like the other members have said... Formula Shell is very good oil for the price point. Run it and be happy with it.

I will be picking some up....good deal.

They had 5w20, 5w30 and 10w40 for sure. Can't recall if they had 10w30. It wasn't in the oil section either.
