How much oil do you have total, for all your applications?

Vehicles (2018 F150 5.0L V8 that takes almost 9 quarts per OCI, and 2014 Ford Edge 3.5L V6 that takes 6 quarts per OCI)

- 40 quarts M1 5W-20
- 16 quarts QSUD 5W-20


Lawnmowers (2017 Toro zero turn with Kohler 725 7000 series engine, and a 7 year old Toro Recycler)

- 12 quarts Delo synthetic blend 10W-30. I might get some Rotella straight 30 for the Recycler depending on how the 10-30 does with consumption
- 2 quarts Kohler 10W-30 for next OCI until break-in is over


Snowblower (2017 Arien's single stage Path Pro, 208cc)

- 5 quarts QSUD 5W-30
- 2 quarts G-oil 5W-30


Boat (1985 Johnson 90 HP motor)

- 12 quarts XD30 Evinrude synthetic blend


Total: 89 quarts, possibly adding another 5 quarts of Rotella straight 30 grade if needed for the push mower

56 quarts of 5W-30, more than half of which I got for free. Both cars call for or allow 5W-30, so it works out well.

1 jug......Texaco 5W-30 conv.
14 qts.... Schaeffer's 9000 series 0W-20

14 qts of Resolute synthetic, 24qts of Redline street and race oils, few quarts of supertech, and 5 quarts of Castrol 0w40.

My rule is if synthetic is under $3 a quart then stock up.

54" Toro zero turn and 21" recycler get Supertech 10w30, and both Toro snow blowers get 5w20.


08 135i (600hp) Redline 5w40
13 X3 28i (375hp) Castrol 0w40
07 Mzd3 2L ST Syn 10w30
11 Mzd6 2.5L ST Syn 10w30
14 Mzd3 2L Dealer 0w20
16 Yukon XL ST Syn 0w20

94.5 quarts. :-)



All of it was gotten on clearance or with a hefty rebate.

No stash. I buy my Valvoline as needed plus one quart just in case.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

I'd never had a stash until recently. I started getting notifications from the sales/rebates forum and got lots of deals I couldn't pass up. I don't think I paid more than $2/quart for name brand synth.
