Yes. The Smitty's SuperS is a quality oil at a great price. It is 10% PAO group IV

Super S synthetic blend is a very good oil. It is API SN, ILSAC GF-5 approved. It has been said to have 10% of group 4 synthetic oil blended in. It has been checked out by PQIA and it has been proven to be just as good as any other approved oil. So, you are good to go here man.

as i have noted in the past only a LITTLE bit of any group synthetic = a semi synthetic!!! as noted a good deal for short changes, many oil brands are just relabeled or blended to their specs by someone else + sold for less $$. big name oils are prolly a bit better but not as much better as their price is higher

Mine is almost $80 if I use the stealer. Iíll change my own for less than half of that and get the satisfaction of a job well done to boot.

That oil is safe for probably 7,500 mile oil changes

I seen SuperS in Kmart. I think itís blue or silver colored bottles. The labels are too busy they need to simplify the label

It's a great oil for the dollar. As stated, passed PQIA testing and I did a 10,000 mile OCI in a Honda Accord and had the UOA done by Wix and the numbers looked great (TBN registered around 2.3 after the 10K run with about 70% highway and 30% city driving). I've picked it up at KMART as low as $8.98 for 5 qts. when it's on sale, but your local Napa has a killer price if the filter is included!

Since the 2.5 is basically a shortened 4.0 (and will run forever) it won't be picky. Based on comments and references it looks like the oil should be good to go! 3000 is probably a short interval, agree with at least 5000. Your owner's manual probably says 6000 normal 3000 severe (like my '97 Wrangler 2.5's did) but it can likely go further.

Looks nice, that's the 5w20 link though... here is their 10w30...the 2.5 specs 10w30 across most temps as well as 5w30 for lower temperatures.


I'm a thickie; but a 20 has its place.
