Every time I go in my parts room at work I just gaze at all the glorious oil and filters we have in stock, I love it. Thought Id post a few pictures. Really wish we used more Havoline Pro DS than Mobil 1, but apparently we get a better deal on the Mobil so whatever. This is at least 220+ quarts if I remember my inventory count right.

My stash consists of over 250 quarts and it doesn't look that massive....ive never had it all in one place before I guess though.

My stash is currently 4 changes of 5W-30 and 5 changes of 0w-20.

I put about 10K/year on the 5W vehicle and 12-14K on the 0w vehicle. I change at 5K (just because) so this is about a 2 year supply.

My bad, its more like 750-800 quarts. I counted individual quarts and cases separate. There were at least 45 cases.

Because its a little cheaper when M1 isnt on sale. Plus were a Chevron service station so youd think wed used chevron products more than M1.

That's a lot of oil. Wouldn't it be easier to get 55 gallon drums of Supreme 5W-20?

I'm curious about the second photo.
Was it taken with a super wide rectilinear lens?
Or stitched from multiple shots?
The first shot reminds me of the olden days shooting Mamiya 2 1/4" square.
