O'reilly's has some quarts of Chevron Supreme SL/SM 20W50 for $5.69. Showed manager the older API (Had no clue about API) SL/SM and told him that $5.69 a quart was very high. He told me that he would reduce the price to $5.00 a quart. I told him Advanced Auto had Chevron reduced to .99 quart. (Missed it). I happily declined......Thoughts?

Chevron is NOT sold in Albuquerque metro area. Even Sam's & Costco have been out of stock for six months.

LOL The clueless store manager doesn't know anything about company policy, either. O'Reilly had 20w-50 and 10w-40 Chevron and Havoline on clearance at the same time they were closing out the Havoline Synthetic! If he checks his computer, he'll find the real price, if it's still even listed.

Way too high, has 5 qt jugs for $11.77 which equals $2.36/qt. Of course the thickest I see is 10w30. I remember buying Valvo SynPower qts. for .05 each at Advance Auto last year but some stores won't sell it the clearance price. Later re-sold it on CL for $3/qt or $35 or 12 qts.

Autozone has had either Castrol or Valvoline 20w50 semi synthetic if that's what you need, for $2.00 per quart. They have been keeping it behind the counter around here, you might ask about oil on sale....maybe they are still hiding some!

Still would like to get some info on the Harvest King full synthetic oil to compare to Chevron Supreme & ST-can't believe the HK would be worse for $9.99/jug at RK. Citgo usually makes good products, despite the Venezuela connection/ownership.
