Yes they have this sale going on nation wide I believe. If I still used conventional oil I'd get some of this its good oil.

Sale ends 4/15 and should be nationwide. I checked a few zip codes nationwide and they all worked. Great additive package with a good dose of moly, boron, etc...

yep seen it in Texas last night. Wife told me "you don't need any more oil", so I was shamed into putting the jug back.

I've found buying automotive supplies to be a better solo experience than a shared one

Is this pretty good oil? I use Pennzoil in one car and Mobil 1 in the other. If I didn't use it in a car, probably my lawn mowers.

I use it in my motorcycles I restore as a break in oil and have never had one fail yet. Good stuff.

Between the high heat and high rev-energy exerted by my push lawnmower, I only use full synthetic in my Honda 5HP lawnmower. Currently and for the past several years, it's been Rotella T6 5W-40.

Small lot size (takes me 25 minutes to cut grass).....I change that Rotella every two years. 20oz of good synthetic oil is a small price to pay, to keep that lawnmower engine top-notch. It would never see leftover / beater-type oils. My lawnmower engines never lose compression, as the years of service pile-up. I also feed them premium-only gasoline....93 octane. They simply run better / smoother using the best top-tier gasoline like Shell, Mobil-Exxon or BP.

Also...Run your lawnmower completely out-of-gas, prior to winter storage. It saves the gaskets - removes things like varnish and gumminess in the fuel line, for an entire lifetime of that lawnmower's service.
