So yeah, I FINALLY decide to go with Supertech for my truck. It runs great on it and I was STOKED because not only is it a good robust CJ-4 oil for the old 7.3, but it is only $9 a gallon......until yesterday....I find out it has risen to $11.47 per gallon. Imagine my delight in finding out it is now more $$, even though it is still the cheapest. I also noticed Rotella went up about the same. Ah well, can't have everything I guess. Happy motoring!

Everything is going up. Inflation. 2002 Delo 400 was under $7.00 per gallon.

If you've been paying attention the price of all oil has be creeping up at Walmart the last couple of months. I think its what they call inflation.

Makes no difference to me. I buy all my oil when I see something on clearance/markdown. Bought a 2.5 gal jug of Shell T5 10w-30 oil for $13 a few months back.

So I should have no fear running Supertech 15W40 in my 'ol 7.3? Its getting old shelling out $75 for Motorcraft 15W40 and a Napa Gold 1734, but I buy the motorcraft for the extra zddp.

In early 2000s you can get Chevron Supreme or Formula Shell for 49c a quart after rebate every month.

Definitely have no fear. My 7.3 does really well on it and the additve package is CJ-4, so it's pretty robust. Ditch the Motorcraft, unless you like dropping the coin on it.

I tried it. My truck ran like chit on it...bad idling, just all around [censored]. I was disappointed because I thought it would be a good oil.

I always, mostly bought my oil at Walmart, sometimes ST. I know oil prices change but I too have felt the ST seems to be higher then it was compared to other name brand oil. To me, the difference used to be ST was much cheaper, doesnt seem that way anymore, seems more close in price, I mostly use conventional.
Dont know if I am right, but whatever ...
