Rotella 15w40 Dino but that is still a very good deal on some good oil. I ran this before I switched over to T6 at 36K in my Duramax.

That is the price of Supertech 15w-40. Not a great price, but a good one for sure.

How is $2.49ish a quart not a great price?

Regular price at Walmart is ~$3.50/qt. A dollar off a qt is a good deal.
Advance Auto Parts has Peak 15w-40 syn-blend for $1.89/gallon. This is a great price.
Some have also gotten Valvoline VR1 20w-50 for $0.65/qt. This is also a great price.

It's a good price, but it's easy to be spoiled with all the clearance oil deals.

For example, this compares less favorably vs. recent and ongoing $7.50 Traveler 15w-40 gallons at TSC, $7 Castrol 15W-40 at Walmart, and $1.85 (or $4.85 in my case) gallons of 15W-40 Peak BlueDEF at Advance.
