How good you guys think it is? I'm planning on experimenting... What you guys think? They also have in 5w20, 10w30, 10w40 flavors, but this one 5w30 was the only Synthetic blend. Was beside QS and PYB.

I'd have no problem running it IF it truly was an SN oil and not some fly-by-night outfit just slapping some labels on used motor oil. I guess Family Dollar is big enough that they are doing everything above the table. I usually wait for Peak or TropArtic to go on sale in the sub-$2 range if I'm looking for an everyday oil, but $3/quart isn't bad.
Let us know how your experiment comes out.

EDIT: I didn't see the Warren name on the label until I squinted. Should be a good oil.

It is a quality oil that meets basic standards that is good for mfr-spec OCI where dino is called for. Made by Warren Oil (NOT WPP)

For a few $$$$ more you can get a jug of real FS oil
This is fine but not great deal.

At least it isn't used, silicone filled garbage like some c-store oils the PQIA has found (Bullseye, City Star, etc.)!

Its high-mileage version has BOQI = 31 -- impressive for a conventional oil.

If its not a decision on eat or buy cheap oil, buy an oil that you can rest easy running. I'm as cheap as they come for all my 50 years. Still have my 3rd grade lunch money under my pillow but I will not chance $10K in engine problem to find out if I got a good deal on cheap oil. I can envision something weird like foaming, clotting when mixed with gas blowby or moisture, separation while sitting, etc. Or over detergent/solvent and break loose large clumps of varnish/sludge and clog a passage.

You're talking 5 qts for $15 of ??? oil vs $17 for QS syn blend or SuperTech full Syn and rest easy. Is $2 two or three times a year worth the hassle of a mystery oil that MIGHT be Ok?

Is it a Dollar or $3 ?

If its $3 then can't you do better with a name brand?

I bought a whole bunch of it when a local Family Dollar closed and had it on closeout for $1.50 a bottle. It went 7500 miles with ease.

Here's the filter:

Warren Oil is not the same as Warren Performance Products which makes Peak and ST oil, correct?

Yes sir you are correct. They are different Warren and WPP. Both make good to very good oils.
