I have been using super-S in the Tahoe. It completely stopped the usage problem. But our Kmart closed. I can get Chevron @ Costco for a good price. Think it's on par with the Super-S?

I just saw Super-S at the Shell station near work. But it's quite a bit more than what Kmart sold it for. I'm sure Chevron oil is better quality tho.

Just have to try it. I have always had good luck with Chevron products. It might be near enough to get you what you want smile

Maybe.. more than likely. I have run both in my Nissan Altima 3.5 VQ. Both ran very quiet in there. Chevron supreme I would like to try as well.

Sure about that?

For years, I didn't think my HD had one either. It does.

I have used both and they are very comparable. My oil consumption in my Dodge was approximately 10% better using Chevron vs Super S using 10w-30. I also think the Formula Shell currently on sale at Home Depot would be a good choice to consider.

Just stay away from Peak or Supertech conventional if you have an oil consumption problem unless you are looking at the 50 wt. oil.

Chevron Supreme is real oil; not like that mickey mouse stuff that comes in the yellow bottle.
