The other threads with pictures are well over 2 years old, all of this oil is rebate or clearance. I completely stopped drinking alcohol 5 years ago, never did drugs, and I banned myself from motorcycles for life on 05/03/08. I had used this forum to help with my oil hoard, but I have been hoarding oil since the mid 90's well I used it also on my buy sell cars, but also my own personal vehicles. I always had a few years worth of oil for my bikes, trucks, boat, Porsche, ect. The wife caught me taking these pictures and says I need to find a place like oil Anonymous, like Alcohol Anonymous but for oil hoarders. She is ok with it as long as I keep it in my space in the basement, lol. I'm running out of room, its time to find something else to spark my interests. But, I still will always have to change the oil in my vehicles. Anyone wanna post a picture of their stash, or tell me I have artificially raised the price of oil, go for it! There are no rules, say what ever you want!

Gosh, and I was concerned over having 3 5qt jugs and about 20 filters.
How often do you change your oil? Seems like even with 3 OCIs a year for 7 cars it'll take you years and years to use that stash

You could do charity oil changes, like I do.

Or start selling it on Craigslist.

The wife has a Cadillac STS, so we have 8 vehicles. The Ford takes 15 quarts, Chevy 10. lol, I have cases of filters, bought on deep discount from, https://www.fleetfilter.com/ 20% discount when you spend $200.00, they carry Wix. Both of my trucks have dual class 8 fuel filter systems on them,12 micron water separator, 2 micron Cat fuel filter, Wix brand. I did just buy 24 of the Champ clearance filters from RA, 12, 3593A, and 12, for my lawn tractors. Cost $33.00 cause they messed up on the shipping, so I got a discount.

IDK. I have equipment also. If you knew prices paid, you might have a different opinion.

You don't have to get it, no offence, I have large supplies of items I use. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy. You don't even see the 40 gallons of chainsaw bar oil I have, bought on sale also.

There is plenty of conventional there too, I run conventional in my Ford and all my equipment, snow blowers, wood splitter, lawn tractors= 2, Honda mower, 2 Honda generators. I don't believe in using synthetic in any of this equipment. Chevron 10W30 or 5W30. ST is ok also. Actually just about anything is fine but I got a lot of Chev/ST for $ 9.00 per 5 qt. Chevron has a moly content normally over 150 ppm.

Not going to sell it on Craigs. I'm ok with it taking 10 years to use it. I do help a couple people. I repair an old mans car that I made a friend, and I buy dog food for his dog, I baby sit, or watch his dog a lot, he is 79 and if something happened to him I asked if someone was already willing to take care of his dog, he said no. I asked if I could be the person to have her, she loves my dogs and I. He put me in his will as to receive Samantha. I already have 2 dogs, 3 sometimes when I have Samantha.

That's like 240 qts shocked2


Amazing deals here I'm sure.... I'd bet almost all of these are $2 and under per quart... And some even less than a $1 per qt... Awesome.

I agree with Linctex about using some of this to help others... Which you are doing.

KneeGrinder, you have to stop cold turkey. Divert your energy into reducing your OCI to something less. May I suggest every 3 months. Although dirty oil does not mean it’s time to change, for you, make it your mantra. If it’s dirty on the dipstick, change it. Report back next May 1. Your current photos can be the “ Before Photos”.

Remember, no more oil purchases. laugh

P.S. Good on you for committing on the dog.
