Supposedly Spirit Oil ( http://www.spiritpetroleum.com/ ) is a trademark owned by the Petroleum Marketers Association of America, or PMAA.

I have never heard of this group until now.

Rather than look through PQIA to check your oil purchase, easier to just buy name brand oil at a normal store and avoid the dollar store for motor oil.

Loc: dayton oh
very common in noname,taliban run stations,and even major brand stations franchised to the same.
for instance a local bp station has shelves full of everclear branded garbage for sale.
i guess bp has no standards for their franchisees to uphold or they do not enforce them.
if there is no quality assurance for products in the store it makes you wonder about the quality of the fuel!

PQIA does a great job testing oils, antifreeze and other automotive fluids. I have never heard of that brand or seen it here in Lincoln/Omaha area. There should be a recall on that brand of oil at a minimum.
