I'm such a nut about the oil I want to run in my newly bought '16 Ford Fiesta. I had Havoline in a box, 5w20 but took it back, it seemed too thin. Then I heard about a sale on NAPA syn blend and got 2 jugs of 5w20 for $19.71 with the NAPA $5 rewards. Then I picked up one of 5w30 in that brand. So I have three 5 quart jugs of this stuff and I feel like taking it back for a refund and buying Super Tech 5w20 conv oil to run when I do my OCI in early October. But the NAPA oil is made by Valvoline and would hold a candle to any oil out there, especially for $11.50 a jug. ST is $13.68 every day.
A few years ago I had some Valvoline NextGen recycled 5w20 oil in single quarts and I sold them. I bought them on closeout for about 65c a quart and resold them for cheap, about $2 a quart. I just didn't want to run that oil for some odd reason.
Am I the only guy out there like this? I seem obsessed about it.
I only drive 3 to 4k miles a year these days.
I do an OCI 2x a year, usually with conv oil.
