Valvoline has been cheap at SCA for a while and now they're doing 25% off tomorrow for boxing day. Thought they'd pull out the old chestnut of putting the prices right back up to where they never are and then reducing that by 25%.

But no, Valvoline synpower 5W30 DX1 and 5W40 syn power are now $22 for 5L. Cheapest I've seen. Are they phasing out their Valvoline stocks? Noticed many of the previous valvoline specs disappearing too. Can't find many Mobil oils on their site either.

That's a good price, $22 for 5L of SynPower.

I like their SynPower 5W30 FE that is A5/B5 and API SL due to extra zinc.

But I have more family to visit on boxing day, plus ample oil in my stash already.

Yep going out of all Valvoline products. I grabbed the last bottle of 5w-40 Synpower they had would have bought all on shelf if they had more.

I bought a Mobil1 0W40 1L bottle as a X-Kringle gift too yesterday for someone with a oil burning VW engine.

It was $9.77 which is actually cheap for M1. If it's still that price with 25% extra off then I might buy I bunch as it would work out to . I love the 1L bottles, so much easier to use than a 5-6L jug. Would work out to $36 for 5L. Not bad for the old PAO version of M1 0W40!

OK that makes sense that SCA is going out of Valvoline.

Few months ago they had a 50% off SynPower sale. I had a look, but not much left on the shelves. Probably even less now.

Shame .... I like Valvoline.

BTW I think BigW stock Valvoline, with KMart stock Shell. They both have fairly good everyday prices, but limited range.

I should have asked if it was Valvoline's doing or theirs. Funny they still list 5w-40 on their site but they have no more in stock. The only Valvoline Big W here have is XLD and Maxlife semi synthetic 20w-50. I bought the Synpower because it was cheap and really had to change the oil, still determining what oil I will run in the Subie long term.
