Anyone ever ever ran this? I wasn’t planning on it. Just saw it and was curious. Like Supertech and other store brands, looks like Warren makes this. This particular location only had 10w-30 and 10w-40. $1.50/quart!

Apologies for the sideways pics, not sure how to fix that.

Made by Warren, I'd be willing to say that it's a match for ST in quality.

Too bad the closest one is 700 miles from me... and also too bad that Fred's is closing so many locations!


I use the overseas manual to choose my oil viscosity.

It's from the other Warren, Warren Oil, NOT the same Warren that brews ST. Still, it's likely fine for what it claims to be. I've used Fred's conventional, and also Rural King's former "RK" branded synthetic (i.e., not their Harvest King made by Citgo) that was also made by Warren Oil.

Warren Oil blends fine oils like you stated. There are some that are Dexos approved. And they were early on the 0w16 oils being brought to market.

I bet they get their base oils from either ExxonMobil and or Shell... And additives from Afton or Lubrizol or Infineium.

THEY’RE is that better now ?????
Maybe Fred’s is upscale shopping where you live, not where I live. Fred’s is a joke in my opinion not even close to Walmart or Dollar General. Oh sorry Fred’s gone out of business, because Dollar General came to town.

I was considering going back and grabbing a quart for a VOA, just for kicks. Where is the cheapest place? I read Black Stone was about $30
