Was browsing around my local Autozone the other day, and found these. VERY tempted to pick up one or two of the Rotella jugs.


Rotella T-5 10w30 2.5 gallon jug for $15



Not sure how many people can use the Pentosin FFL-2 fluid, but I'm thinking that $1 for a quart is probably an awesome deal for those who can.

The T5 clearance just keeps on going, kind of like the Havoline one.
The supply chain must have been loaded with this stuff. Someone seriously overestimated the demand for this oil at the original extortionate price and it's now obsolete for new diesels.
Pick up a couple of jugs, take advantage of the $12.50 MIR on each and enjoy twenty quarts of a decent oil for an outlay of five bucks net.
The Pentosin is an awesome deal for those afflicted with one of these trouble-prone trannys.

True on the rebate... did that recently on 4 jugs.
Not true on being obsolete for new diesels, especially Ford. This is a premium oil suitable for darn near any diesel on the road, pickup to OTR.

I picked up like 15 of the Ti clearance jugs. I'll take more too if I can get it. The FFL2, otoh, is pretty much VW-only.

Not sure that I'd describe this as a premium oil, since it does have rather high volatility.
The C spec it meets has been superseded, which is the reason that I wrote that it's obsolete.
It is a thoroughly decent oil that is well suited to many diesel and SI engines.

I went back and picked up a jug. I don't really NEED more oil in my stash, but at $6 per gallon, it was hard to not at least get one. I can't justify buying all of the 4 jugs they had.

The jugs I snagged a few weeks back of the T5 showed heavy layer of dust and 2013 manufacture dates. So this stuff has been sitting awhile and not moving.
