This is hardly evidence that Costco's running a racket..Some people have 5+ qt sumps so they have to buy 2 anyhow and if you're already at Costco, why not pick up a couple of jugs?.. you at least avoid having to venture into Wally's.. where who knows what can happen to ya!😂

Edit: and it's "after all" not "afterall"... that would be a new word.

Soooo... How much are you saving in your area?

I won't be buying any Kirkland oil (in the near future) because I have plenty of clearance oil jugs....

but for some people - - it might be worth it (to avoid walmart?) .

When Costco has six packs on sale … it’s actually really close to the cost of a jug at Walmart (per/quarts) … so having both can be really handy for 6-8 quart changes …

Me going to Costco is 45 miles and a worse jungle inside/outside of the store compared to two Walmart’s near me. We hit Costco for specific bulk things only … pretty much fill the back of the Tahoe …

Costco is still cheaper by $4+ so it's a better deal (as long as you are a member). Costco $23.99 for 10 quarts vs $28.74 if you buy two 5 gallon jugs at walmart.

My wife would say I am the "racket." I just bough a case of Amsoil OE because I like my dealer and I was buying some grease and lawn mower oil. Like I needed it to go with my Federated, ST, PP, SGT and Schaeffers. No, maybe I'm more of a "tool." banana

Costco - 75 miles. WalMart - 3 miles. We do make "hauls" to Costco several times a year. I don't seem to have a problem with going to "our" WalMart like some here?

Common sense says to buy a 2nd five quart jug, instead of a single quart, for those needing 6+ quarts.
That way you only need one five quart jug the next 3-4 OCIs, for that six quart engine.

Or, it allows you plenty of leftover oil for vehicles that have consumption issues between OCIs.

I bought 0w20 for under $30 delivered on-line, Costco.com.
No gas or time spent. Click-click. Easy $$.
Of course you could do the same at Wally World on-line.

All good.
