I used to be able to get the 5 quart jugs of Motorcraft 5w20 synthetic blend oil at Walmart for about $19, and also on Amazon for about the same. It was a great deal! Anyway, now it seems it's never in stock at Walmart, and Amazon has jacked the price to about $30. Is there a shortage of it, or is it not popular anymore? I should have bought more years ago when it was always available I guess. I can get the quart bottles, but it costs more. The quart jug was great.
Does anyone know of any news about Motorcraft oil? Thanks!

Motor craft oil I believe is bottled by ConocoPhillips, their oil is sold as Kendall. I remember seeing motor craft only in qt bottles at walmart. Walmart in CA, I've never seen Kendall either.

Actually, I was getting the 5 quart jugs at multiple Walmarts in California, but now they are never in stock. I just checked and I can get a 5 quart jug locally here in Southern California at O'Reillys for $29, but I was getting it at Walmart for $19. Maybe Walmart can't get it anymore?
So it's not just getting it, but getting it for the deal price of $19 bucks for the 5 quart jug...

hmmm... could be. I'll check a Nevada zip code and see if they have it.

edit - I checked Nevada and Washington state and it's not available there either, or online. Looks like Walmart just doesn't have it, but the local auto parts store does... for 50% more in price.

If you can find Trop Artic or Phillips Shield it is the same product essentially.

Three and a half dollars a quart in bulk at the local Ford dealers. Whatever you drive you can take it to the quick lane and they will do a good job.

The Walmarts are full of it over here. It's the 5W/30 and 10W/30 that are no longer available in 5 quarts.

The WM here carries it as well but you can get a full synthetic like QSUD for the same price.

I used to get it for 12.44 for 5qt jug at Willie Mart. It used to transform the Vtec V6 in the Accord into a beast.

The Walmart near me in Buckeye (Phoenix), AZ has 5qt jugs of it in good quantities.. Under $20.

In your case, if you can't find one close enough to send it to you, you might consider this as an alternative:

Havoline HM Synthetic Blend 5w-20 5qt Jug - $15 on Amazon

Good point. Sams Club used to carry TropArtic 5W20 in 12qt cases for $30 (around there). I bought a few cases back when it was this cheap.
