most WM in my area are clearancing qt sized diesel oils...Mobil Delvac & Delo 15w-40, Rotella 5w-40, Delo 10w-30; are these deletions due to reduced sales? my interest spurs from using hdeo in my scoot & moto...qt are easier to use than gal for the purpose

They don't sell well is my guess. Like I've said, less and less people are changing their own fluids. I remember when Target had a selection of oil and filters when I first started driving and that is where I bought oil. Target is down to two oils in a few weights and sells no filters at all.

Most diesels hold gallons of oil, so in a way, it makes sense. I always assumed the quarts were for the OPE crowd.

The diesel guys up here like buying it in pails, let alone quarts (or liters).

Target is where I would go now if I wanted to overpay for oil. I'm surprised they keep it in stock -- I would not assume the 'typical' Target shopper changes their own oil, let alone knows how to pop the hood.

Good idea.. I canít recall when I last got a qt of motor oil there or any other big store. Itíll free up shelf space for more items

Clearance?
Well, we stopped by a Walmart in search of the elusive dirt cheap PP HM 0W-20 (found no such thing) and they had quarts of old T5 and T6 on "clearance" for $4.50 and $5.00 respectively.
Not much of a clearance when you consider that AZ was blowing out ten quart jugs of T5 for $15.00 last summer and then there was also the MIR which got you down to $2.50 for ten quarts of a really decent oil.
