Since deciding on 5K OCI's, I will be using approximately one 12 quart case per year. This "old SN formula" Quaker State 30wt should fit the bill nicely once I use up my old school Kendall GT-1.

Hi Red,

Did you sell the Cruze? How much did you get for it? Walmart uses QS for their pit crew oil change service for $18. Good quality oil, I'd use it. thumbsup

Fine oil for the Roadmaster that was built when SF/SG oil was out.

I forget, what is the Kendall, I remember when you got it, just not what API and such. Seems like it was green or blue oil?

Green oil, API SJ. I also have a couple of gallons of CD/SJ Kendall Super D-3 30wt to use in OPE or whatever. It is not dyed green.

BiL said he passed over Kendall synthetic at $2/quart saying he knew nothing about it ... how many do they make?

Go baby, go laugh

SAE 30 for the duration. Good on you for sourcing that QS 30. Should work great for many years to come smile

I've been kicking around running a SAE 30 but couldn't find one that's a full syn. Not one labeled as such anyway. I think my M1 HM 10w30 is darn close to a mono 30 anyway

As of now? They produce non dexos synthetic, dexos synthetic, and a euro synthetic. Somewhat redundant that they produce three synthetic 5W-30 oils.

In two years I'll get my chance to run it. I figure three cases of 30wt for personal use is not even a stash.

Good job Red91,

The QS SAE 30 (API SN) at 5k mile OCI sounds great to me.

Wish I could get a case of Quaker State 30wt here.......swap you some Penrite for it ?

Mmmmm modern SAE30 slobber Would LOVE to try straight oils in a modern turbo DI engine. Where do you even find this stuff?

If you are asking specifically about QS 30wt, I've found it occasionally at Walmart in qt bottles and Menard's should stock it too. Most part stores should be able to order it for you.

If you mean modern 30wt oil in general, I've found Castrol and Pennzoil at Walmart. Farm stores should have a decent variety of 30 in various brands, and every parts store I've been in has house brand 30wt. Plenty of options out there.

I thought you had access to SN Kendall GT-1 30wt? Is it costly?
