Need to top off my 4.0 Jeep...I'm running 5w30 STP High mileage from Autozone since it was a good price with the filter, but a quart of it there is like $7. What's something that's pretty similar? I know anything will mix but thought I'd try to match it up a bit. I think the bottom of the STP bottle had the Warren logo so I'm thinking Supertech high mileage might be similar?

Yep supertech will be the closest and probably cheapest regular price oil.

Just buy a 5qt jug and use it to top off. I would use 10w30 in those motors.


yup

10w30 is what I use usually, but for the winter the 5w30 works well since it can be -15F here.

No Harvest King in Wisconsin. Super tech is probably your best bet. I did notice Casey’s General stores house oil is Warren. Check that out if you have one close. Not sure where in Wisky you are, there’s a ton of them around me.

Search for your closet distributor give them a call for $$$ and pick up a case of their most economical high mileage PCMO. You will save time and likely money.


make the inside of your engine oil cap white.
don't use.

I think the Blain's brand is Citgo, which I'm not a fan of supporting. Might be wrong though!

Thanks for the help everyone. FWIW, I liked Pennzoil HM better in it, will go back to that next OCI.

I vote for SuperTech as your add-up oil!

If you have a dollar store near by they carry peak brand hm oil along with there house brand hm oil which is good oil since they updated the specs.
