Came across this yesterday. I forgot to take a pic of the back label but just wanted to share. It's not at my local WM, but one I visited. Wonder who makes it? It's obviously pretty salty at nearly $10/qt!

Interesting. The SDS shows that it is made by a blender called Lubrication Technologies in Golden Valley Minnesota. Exmark mowers markets a premium 30w/10w30 synthetic oil that I was told 7 years ago is also made by Lubrication Technologies. Amsoil also markets a 10w/10w30 small engine oil.

The VP Youtube commercial is worth watching: grin


I gave the Exmark oil a try at my workplace out of curiosity. Here is a UOA that I thought it had sheared a bit more than it should have: https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/2832742/Re:_Exmark_Premium_Oil,_30w-10

I started to try this but the Poulan Pro was next to it for a similar price and I had used it before. Thanks for the post.

I hope their video QA people don't work in the mfg area; They spelled "quicker" incorrectly @ :40.

"Quciker" start up is important because most damage occurs at start up.

Lube Tech is right down the road from me. They blend for a variety of companies.

Not worth the money at only 18 ounces. The claims are sales gimmicks. I would go with a name brand synthetic if you want a synthetic, you will get more at a lesser price.

Most small engines will last long beyond the steel they are mounted to with an occasional, or none what so ever oil change. What could this possibly do?

Most small engines are made in China these days and you can get a replacement for around a hundred bucks. How much are you spending on oil?

Exactly. Keeping the oil full on small engines is the most important thing. Brand is not really important.

I built a Predator 212cc for a friend's go-kart. It has no governor, different cam, lighter flywheel, billet rod, valves, carb, etc. It revs around 6,000 RPM, which is almost twice the stock rated RPM. His son hammers that kart, and it runs perfect on whatever cheap HDEO they can find.

I believe LT blends the oil for Polaris, Victory, Indian brands. I've used the Victory oil with good results (analysis).

A seasonal oil change with the cheapest dino oil in the recommended viscosity is really all your OPE will ever need.

Wow... some of you guys need a Xanax or three. I wasn't pushing this, or claiming it's the greatest thing ever, or... I was just sharing what I found. WM is not exactly known for straying from the safe, high-volume path, and I thought it was at least interesting that they are carrying it. I'm not buying it for mine, so... relax smile

Damage to the video editors reputation I guess for not doing a spellcheck.

That's what I was thinking but it is common on this sight.
