Any of the SN synthetics members here repeatedly claim to find at $1 per quart.

Free ones! grin

But seriously I think there is enough not free ones out there already.

I guess to play the game though I reckon they need an oil which is a game changer. Tough enough that a hammer blow would not get through it onto steel plate and last long enough for a long OCI, with change to spare and at SAE 0wt. All for less than $5 per litre. Coffee2

$1, whaaaat, that much?

On my last score, I bought 20 something qts of QSUD for .75/qt! I bought up two shelves of 5W20/5W30. ATMOF, I practically hurt myself sweeping it off the shelves so fast & into my shopping cart that I though I tore my rotator cuff...

...JUST KIDDING, I didn't get hurt! laugh

Yeah I agree. I too look for those $1-$2/qt synthetic oils as you mentioned and I sometimes get a good score. However, I am not looking for anything special except for buying oils that my vehicles & equipment require as inexpensively as possible.

I have actually gotten free oil after multiple rebates/sales combos ect. Not just FREE After Rebate, I actually made a few bucks. Very Rare!

I'd love to see the green formula GC 0w30 make a comeback, with some new tweaks to make it pass more current specs of course.

Valvoline VR1 as a Semi-synthetic 10W-40, would be just perfect for my Escort, it doesn't like 20W-50 because of the hydraulic tappets.

Interesting choice, here in Spain a company called Cepsa makes a 20W-40 PCMO that i think is API SF or something, i had a look some weeks ago and the jugs were dated as manufactured March 18 so it's not some ancient stuff that's abandoned on the shelf, probably has 1000ppm or more of z&p

I want Mobil to sell M1 15W-50 in Europe too, we only get the Racing 4T version which doesn't have Moly and is really expensive.
