None
Enough for top offs

I usually have enough for top offs. I buy when oil change time comes.

Its enough for two oil changes on each vehicle. Up here in the great white north, we seldomly get as good a sale selection on oils.

Last time I stocked up was on PP when it was on sale with a $5 instant rebate per jug.

Sufficient. I'm usually one change ahead so I never have to buy oil last minute at full price.

Small.

I like to keep enough for a couple oil changes. I like having it just in case I decide to change oil in something or a family member needs a change. Same goes for most household products.

Substantial, even for a BITOG reader. 3 ecoboxes of PUP and PP found on Ebay for $110 (PUP) and $90 (PP) with free shipping + 40qts. of various 0w-20, 0w-30, and 5w-30 synthetics bought at $2/qt. during last year's AAP/AZ fire sales. 5-10 filters for each of my 4 vehicles, ranging from Fram Ultras ($4/ea. on Ebay) to OEM Toyota cartridges (<$3.50/ea. on Ebay) to some "Tearolators" for my '95 Dakota, clearance-priced from my local Meijer store during the rebadging for $0.89/ea. I'll use up this stuff---we keep vehicles a long time.

bought the day before a change. I see no need to stash oil. The only thing I keep around is a couple quarts for top off, or to be used in the mower.
