Chevron supreme is now priced lower at WM? Keep in mind the 5-20 and 5-30 variants of CS are semi syns with a good dose of moly.

What r u thinking walmart?

Plus Walmart TLE doesn't use ST oil. In their base oil change package or pit crew special as they call it, they use Quaker State oil.

They do not sell Chevron Supreme at any Was-Mart I know of in Ohio and Castrol is what my local Wal-Mart uses for oil & filter changes. Not every store uses the same brand.

A few times a year, Kmart puts Smitty's on sale for prices that put Walmart to shame. It can be found for $7-8 for the 5qt jug! That's what I would use if price (without any rebates) was absolutely the most important thing.

Dino will go 5,000 miles and, for some folks, that's enough. They are used to it and see no reason to change ...

At my Walmart Supertech is stocked and Chevron Supreme isn't. That's reason enough to buy supertech.

THIS^^^^^^^^^^^^

People are not going to make a special trip to somewhere else to buy Chevron. Only those select few on BITOG who drive all over town to buy oil at .50 cents a quart would do such a thing.

I really liked the CS 10w30 in my Buick at $11.77 a jug but it appears my wally is not stocking it any more, they only had a couple jugs of 5w30 left. They appear to be stocking more Mobil products which is fine I like Mobil Super. Although I bought some PYB at $15 this time just cause it's so well liked here, believe it or not it's the first time I've ever purchased Pennzoil.

After picking up about 40qts of Quaker State @ AAP from their clearance, I am interested to see if Pennzoil or Edge will be on clearance at Autozone. Might end up being a hoarder after all lol

No running around needed. Stopped into AAP last month when I needed a $4 package of air dam fasteners. Saw the QSUD/QS Defy synblend still on clearance and loaded up. It's not hard to plan an "on your way" trip for 39c/qt synthetic oil.
