I thought Peak just made antifreeze. I have never seen their oil. When I Google "Peak Oil", I get something entirely different. Is it cheap?

Should be just fine. Made by other "Warren" or as it is also know by WPP I believe. Their oils always do very well. In fact WPP makes a lot of Supertech oil for Wally World.

I have seen Peak motor oil at my local grocery store Harris Teeter, Dollar General, and in Rite aide pharmacy as well. Buy one get one for $1.90 a qt is a solid deal.

Another idea here... Look for Cam2 Superpromax 5w30. Another good oil that's typically $2 a qt or less. Or even Smitty's Super S is another one in that price range as well.

I know it probably is unlikely but if there's a K Mart near you.... Smitty's Super S is there. It was on sale for $8.49 for a 5 qt container. That's a good deal there on a API SN ILSAC GF-5 approved oil. Reportedly it has 10% PAO in it. I know it ran very quiet in my Altima 3.5 VQ.

I just lol'ed at the off-topic peak oil. Which is something completely different.

I think peak is an ok API approved blend.

Here is a link to their product sheet.

https://peakauto.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/PEAK_conventional_spec_sheet_noback.pdf

Look at the Peak Noack Volatility figures
5W20 = 12.6 %
5W30 = 14.5%
10W30 = 15.2 %
10W40 = 14.9 %
20W50 = 6.2%

Apart from the 20W50 (Go Thickies !!) they all seem a bit on the high side to me.
In particular, in my world a 10W30 should have lower volatility than a 5W30, so the figures above don't make sense to me (a typo maybe?).

You could always send an email to Peak and ask them the Noack of their 10W30. But if they say 15.2% then I would pass. Recall SN is limited to 15%, but you do get some rounding error allowed. Dexos is limited to 13% volatility, and I prefer to be around here.

Here is a link to a PQIA VOA of Havoline 10W30, and it has a Noack of 12%
http://pqiadata.org/Chevron_Havoline_10W30.html
That few % lower Noack would be worth paying a few extra dollars for IMO.
