Walmart had 5qt juggs of Pennzoil HM 10w/40 on clearance for $9 and Pennzoil Euro Formula 0W/40 for $13. I almost bought them with the intention of mixing them to run in my 91 K1500 with 4.3 V6. It is spec'd for 5W/30. It has enough wear that the 40 wt won't hurt it. But, I have five 5qt containers of Havoline HM and one 5qt container of Pennzoil yellow bottle. That's enough for 3 years in my truck should I keep it that long.

I have been scrounging the WMs around here for more of the 0W-40, but they are all picked clean.

I have a red light on the tosh-detector panel.

If it didn't have "enough wear" (admittedly, its a nice, comforting phrase) what do you think the 40 would do?

(I do hope I have "enough wear" too.)

If the oil on sale is not the correct viscosity range, I pass, no matter if it's 50% off regular price.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all BITOG Members.

Doesn’t Walmart do free shipping now? Amazon has it for $21 right now too, shipped free (if you’re a Prime member).
