Has SN/GF 5 and GM Dexos1 certifications
This from a new farm store that just open in the last couple months. Farm and Home. Anyone know anything about this oil.

It doesn't say anything on the bottle about it being new oil, maybe it's used at that low price! crackmeup

It's made by Citgo and has the exact same dexos license number as Citgo synthetic....which leads me to believe it's identical. I consider it just as good as lower tiered syns like NAPA and I wouldn't hesitate to use it.
There is a VOA somewhere on BITOG...I found the VOA:

I can buy that all day long at the local Rural King for $9.99.

I use the 0W20 flavor in my Mazda 3 Touring on 7500mi OCI without drama.

I'm confident that anything that meets SN/GF5 and Dexos 1 will go 7500 miles in the ~4 months it takes me to put on that sort of mileage.

I would guess maybe they are clearing out pre-dexos1 Gen 2 stock and most users probably shouldn't really care about "old" dexos1 vs. Gen 2. Should be very serviceable oil.

That is the every day price, until recently it was $9.99 and the singe quart bottles are still priced at $2.19. The RK I shop at has 0W20 and 5W30 that are both D1G2, running the 0W20 in my daughters Hyundai and wife's Honda.

Thanks for the correction!
Looks like the bottle from the ad is missing the Gen 2, but it's probably just an old picture.

It's an old picture. I've seen D1G2 in the store.

Hey, no problem. Kind of a shame that this oil isn't more widely available around the county.

Not allowed to change oil in my condo, and besides I'm too old, but if I still did this would be my go-to.

I have run HK dino lubes in my 4.6L Fords, and they do every bit as well as brand name syns for up to 10k miles. See my UOAs in the PCMO section.

Most any equipment cares far, far less about brand/grade than you do.



PS - I presume you got that at Rural King? Harvest King is their brand line, although I suppose it could be picked up by subsidiaries?
PSS - I updated your thread title for the full product name

The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money
