Stop me if you've heard this before...Lurked on the forum for a while, did a UOA or two and then started looking at oil and filters in the store...

But I'm still learning. I've got 9 oil changes worth of oil and only five filters...

Perhaps you could have a crazy clearance sale?

Seems to beat plain crazy, but I can't criticise. I don't have that much oil, but OTOH I don't have anywhere to keep what I do have (though I didn't pay for most of it).

I've already hidden some of it in the jungle and will probably have to do the same with the rest sometime this weekend.

Mosquitos provide round-the-clock security, but it isn't free.

I'd say it's irrational behavior but then again I have 1000s of rounds of ammo.

I have over 200 quarts, I see it as a hobby that saves me money vs spending full price.

I only buy the oil I want. Maybe on sale but only what I want. But I am trying to get several gallons of Rotella T6 CJ4.

dang. I have 6 quarts of oil in my stash. I do have 3 oil filters with 6 more on the way that were on clearance for $1 each. Thats 9 years worth of filters for my truck, unless I start changing oil twice a year. I don't keep more than one spare usually of my mazda filters, but maybe I can strike a deal at the stealer if I buy a case.

Hows that going?

I only have one gallon left and have resigned myself to Delvac-1 5W-40 in CJ-4.
I found a couple 5-gallon buckets.

I used to have a wicked stash of like 24 quarts about 11 years ago.
Now I'm down to maybe 15 quarts

Are you sure? It appears Mobil was dumping CK-4 stuff in CJ-4 containers, just like Shell was.
