Check the oil to make sure it hasn't been tampered with. More than a few of us, me included, have reported issues at WalMart with oil that's been replaced with water, used oil or some other unknown fluid and then returned to the store and restocked.

When you order online it isn't coming from the store unless you do pickup. Lots of times I've order online with no issues and it seems to come from different warehouses in the Midwest usually by FedEx.

+1, happened to me as well. Purchased in March of this year and brought the jug to the dealer to use. Asked them to return the remaining quart. This was Castrol Edge EP 10w30. Contacted Castrol who asked me to send them the jug with the remaining quart. Their lab analyzed it and they sent me a letter with their results. Had a high content of water and dissolved solids. They couldn't even get a viscosity reading on it at 100 C. They did send me 5 vouchers for 5 free quarts of oil. But the oil was in the car for 1200 miles.

The only problem I've had in that sense is someone took the filter out of an Fram Ultra and had replace it with a Fram Tough Guard. I always check my filter boxes at Walley World now.

Shame on you guys who get caught with your pants down LOL before even putting the bottle in my basket I check the cap to ensure it hasn't been tampered with.

The dealer didn't notice anything wrong with the oil coming out of the jug?

I've noticed that as well along with someone taping shut a Fram Cabin Filter box that had a used filter in it. It was a Denso filter in there.

No and I thought of the same thing myself afterwards, not happy about it at all.

I did look at it and it appeared ok. I didn't try to open it which in retrospect I should have. LOL

This is why I didn't start a thread about it.

Yeah, I'll own that. Only because I'd heard about the issue here before I went to Walmart and completely forgot to check. I was too excited about finding Magnatec at that sale price. But to be fair, of the three bottles obviously tampered with (according to the color of the oil in the peep window), two of the caps still had their anti-tamper strip full in tact the third was half removed, but still attached. So that doesn't work every time.

Glad to hear online orders are not fulfilled from local inventory.
