I rolled into there today. One in Newark DE. on Cleveland AVE.
Great service and I needed 3 quarts of 15w50 FS and they had none on the shelf frown but 89 quarts in the back smile
It wasn't $2.99 but $4.29 and with no tax I feel it was a bargain. ( Retails about $8.52)

I pretty much only use one type of oil now but this is something I need occasionally and I plan on supporting the locals
more and more. Great store and for this job I prefer quarts..

When the $2.99 deal comes around I'll buy some just for the heck of it...

What type of oil do you use?

Magnatec, and Maxlife for me. Occasionally NAPA Conventional

Like you Adam I have tons of oil but from now on I'll just stick with Magnatec
I found no advantage for the CM 0w20 even though I have three cars that suggest it. 5w20 performs the same with no mpg loss or other issues. And I have 5w30 and 10w30 but my need is no longer for them.

So for the weird stuff for my equipment I'll just get the NAPA FS like the 15w50.
I know how CM works and the results are always stellar like I get with Fram Ultra filters.
I'm getting tired of experimenting and I get the CM FS for mid $13 a 5 qt jug shipped- so its a winner

AZ & AAP ran a clearance sale a while back, I was cleaning $1 5W20 Magnatec quarts up like a vacuum cleaner! Think I wound up with around 50 or so, and combined with an Ultra, the 4.6 MGM in my sig has never sounded better on cold starts!

Maybe give the Synpower to brother
