Saw this on sale at Fisher Auto parts aka Federated Auto in my area. It was $3.29 a quart. Pretty good deal for a Dexos Gen 2 approved oil. It has a WNE marking underneath the container so it is made by Warren Petroleum out of Omaha. Which means it is a good oil. They also had a synthetic blend for $10.29 5 qt container. Not too shabby either. My oil collection has been used up a bit lately. Not that is a bad thing. It was a good thing. Did a number of oil changes for myself and other friends. Now all I had on hand was 5 qts of Havoline. Today I added 10 more to the collection. This sale runs through February 28th by the way. I will probably make another trip for a bit more. My limit is 25 quarts to have on hand at any time. Hope you guys had a good day today.

$10.29 for 5 qts of blend is not a bad deal at all for a regular everyday price.

Yeah I agree blupupher. $10.29 for 5 qts is fairly good in my opinion too. I got that for the lady's Camry. The full synthetic is going in my Altima 3.5 VQ.

Around here Federated oil is made by Amalie. Used several cases of straight 30 last year as shop oil. Nice haul for you.

I have one Federated store that is a little bit out of the way not too bad.. kind of reminds me of an Aldi store. The counter guys are very eager to make a sale and its hard to browse without their 'expert' opinions on everything.

Next time i need oil I think i will go with Harvest King..they are a bit cheaper. $9.99/5qt

Yeah that makes sense Red91. From my area there's a Warren distribution blending center only 6 hours away in northwest West Virginia. So it makes sense for them to supply my area. While Amalie supplies your area due to it being closer to your area. At $16.50 for 5 qts of group 3 highly processed dino is not too shabby.

About a year ago, RockAuto was selling Baldwin-built, Federated-branded oil filters for under $1/each. Because I maintain quite a few vehicles, I bought a few dozen of them.
So I was surprised when I realized that the name is still in business. Looking at a few of the stores closest to me, it appears they are in partnership with repair shops and hardware stores.
I still wonder why they sold off all of their oil filters...
