This was at the Greenland, NH store. Buckets were at the end of the automotive aisle on the floor.

I already have two jugs. But you'all should step on this laugh


Formerly in marine engineering. In an earlier life I owned my own petroleum tank truck, and hauled for the majors and independent's.

Hmm, they were not on sale when I went to check for the Fram "Clearance".
I would have bought a pail the 40 wt for my bike.

I actually run API cert (Full detergent?) oil in my oil bath.

It really helps keep the meshy stuff in there clean.

Certainly cheap enough, but what would you use it in?
A straight grade would make a good top-off oil and there are certain applications that actually allow for an SAE 40 per the OM in warm conditions, like older Subarus, including our '09 and there are always the warm weather use OPEs, but five gallons is a lot of oil in a grade that doesn't have all that many applications.
I will have to stay out of TSC since $2.20/gal oil is pretty tempting even if five gallons of this oil would last me for an awfully long time.

Yup, need to make sure you have a need for it before buying.

While I could use the SAE 40 in my bike, 5 gallons would take a while to use, since the bike has a 3.3 qt sump, a 2,500 mile OCI, and maybe 5000 miles a year. Almost 3 years worth of oil there, plus I already have 6 gallons of the Peak 15w-40 syn blend I got on clearance from AAP for like $2/gallon
