5qt jugs w/filter when it's the only deal when I happen to need an OCI. Otherwise, I buy my oil in qts(or jugs) on closeout/discontinued when they're available and build a stash. I'll get my filters when I need'em!

Does it have a pour spout like wine in a box?

What flavor is the 6 gallon bag?

Losing the gallon jugs of oil (when the industry went to 5 and 5 qt.+ jugs) was the last round of meaningful clearance I've ever experienced.

Now, the occasional table with motorcycle oil and failed boutique oils are the only clearances I see.

Kinda stands to reason....all those computer inventory control programs should mean tighter control....and fewer sales for us.

Today only transmission fluid and coolant come in US gallons.

HDEOs come in US gallon jugs as well.
I typically buy 5 qt jugs of the PCMO I use although I'll pick up quarts when they're at a deal price since they're much handier for top-offs as well as for the OPEs.
I do have some ten quart jugs of T5, but only because they cost $2.25 each with clearance pricing after MIR.

These days, usually by the 4 litre jug. I used to buy Imperial Gallons in the UK (not those wee toy American gallons) but I doubt you can do that any more.

Here some of the bottles come in US quart sizes but I avoid them, both on principle and because they seem to be priced similarly to the litre bottles.

I don't like the 4.4L jugs they sell up here in Canada, that size doesn't work well for my 3 cars. I'm only an hour away from the US border though (and we cross over it at least 6 or 7 times a year), so for the past few years I have been buying most of my oil from Walmart in Niagara Falls, NY and I grab the 5 quart jugs there. Not only does the size work out better for my cars but the price is a lot better too.
