Kool but I thought most vehicles still take 5 quarts oil. shrug

Gas monkey throws the container in the trash.
What are you supposed to put your used oil in.

I thought about getting one of those 6 gallon shop packs since mine and the wife's car take the same weight oil.

Pour it into the 5-quart jug you saved from before and save until you have enough for a change.

If it's an economical package then buy it and adapt to it. Keep an old single quart bottle around to empty the box and keep another catch can for recycling transport.

RANT-GENERAL FLAME WARNING: Really people, complaining that you can't cope with a slight change in the handling of a leftover quart or a recycling jug is truly stupid talk.

Think about it. With little provocation you'll be talking about how hard and frugal you grew up and how lousy any other subset of people you choose is because you're superior. Deal with it like a man with a brain for heaven's sake.

Don't take every opportunity to say something ornery and contrary.

Before civility disappears on this thread;

Buy a cheap pitcher at Wally’s to measure the oil. Keep the leftover in the Havoline dispenser.

I hope the idea catches on with other brands. I don't like to buy oil by the quart and my truck takes 6 quarts.

I will be useful when you can find a store that carries it. But I put in my zip code and it returned not available in your area.
Wonder if there's a cost savings?
