Hi everyone!

This forum has been a huge help to me and has reassured me that Super Tech was safe for my cars, and now after two years of running it with oil and ST filter I know you all were right. One huge thing that reassured me was everyone saying that ST is made from the big boys anyway and then just repackaged, but how do you guys figure out who is making what? I know the filters are WIX built because I cut one open, but is there a place you can go to see who is currently making the oil and filters?

Usually the bottom of the container(1qt or 5qt) will have a marking on them. The containers I look for are the ones with WPP or WNE marked on them. These are blended by Warren Performance Products of Omaha, NE(hence the WPP/WNE). The others I am not sure of. However, to my understanding, Exxon/Mobil, Citgo and Warren Uni-Lube are also blenders.

The Exxon/Mobil bottles will be the darker blue bottles/jugs(instead of the ligher blue/gray) and will be in similar containers as the RED Exxon oil bottles. I wish I had some pics to show you but, I don't.

WalMart Auto Service oil changes using Supertech oil and don't they use a re-labeled Wix filter? Not a bad deal actually. Decent components

While ST dino is made by various suppliers depending on the area of the country...it had been said that all ST synthetic oil was made by Warren Performance Products (WPP). This is no longer the case as I have recently spotted Walmart synthetic in Florida that is made by Amalie Oil of Tampa.....In either case, I'm sure they are fine oils....

No, the TLE filter (Fram Core) is a Fram made filter specifically made for quick lubes (Walmart only??).

As said, for the oil, it will vary based on region, they get it from whomever is cheapest in the geographic area. THe bottles are the way to tell, as discussed before.

x2 - I've run ST FS 5w30 for last 160k miles/7 years on chevy 6L Vortec V8 gas - STILL doesn't burn a drop between obc-indicator changes !! ~ 8K miles.
HOT Texas weather!
Fram Ultra filter every change - cheap insurance!

However, it may be a while before I buy anymore of either:
I'm SOOOO stocked up on ~$10 jugs of FullSyn oils deals found on this site (clearance/rebate deals) for the next few years...
Annndd a lifetime supply of $3 Bosch D1 filters for everything I maintain (TRACTOR too !!!) heh heh

Was there ever a conclusion on who bottled the west tx/nm bottles? The only makings that were listed was a "LEE" stamp.

In San Antonio Super Tech oils & ATF's are bottled by Citgo. This is a disadvantage as Citgo doesn't have a license for Mercon LV so the Super Tech MV LV ATF on store shelves here has neither Dexron VI nor Mercon LV license numbers, unlike the same fluid produced by Warren.

It's definitely regional. Pretty much the whole northeast gets WPP. Florida and the southeast gets Amalie. Now I've learned that Texas gets Citgo. Would be curious to hear what the west coast and mid west get.

When I lived in NW Ohio WM store shelves there were stocked with Warren made Super Tech oils & ATF's.

I thought that there were two different Warren companies, and that WPP (Warren Performance Products) was different from WNE?

Of course they are both good, as well as the Amalie SuperTech down south. Some people on here don't like Citgo, though as long as it's API SN certified there's nothing to worry about.

Warren Unilibe, which owns what used to be Coastal Unilube among other assets, is completely seperate comoany from WPP/WNE.

http://www.warrenoil.com/

They have a packaging facility in my area, I think the old Industrial Lubricants facility.

Warren Distribution
WPP and WNE are the same company (and there's also WSE)
Their site is now http://warrendistribution.com
(it used to be wd-wpp.com but they just changed it recently)

Warren Unilube aka Warren Oil http://warrenoil.com

I believe the "WNE" is to indicate the product came from WPP's northeast operation.
