Or if it sounds to good to be true... smirk2

I suppose you're protected by the eBay guarantee and if you paid by PayPal that's an added layer of buyer protection. I hope it works out because that's a steal.

Where do you see $15/gallon? Says $20 + $6 shipping. Regardless,
NO risk. Ebay moneyback guarantee + Paypal buyer protection
NO reward. $6.50 a quart? I paid less straight from the Ford dealer for Motorcraft oil.

It’s a best offer listing. Seller accepted $15 shipped.

I'm sorry you overpaid so much for motorcraft oil. I usually pay around $2/qt for full syn.

There is risk. Some of these bottle seals can easily be taken off intact.. and then refilled with whatever the cheapest oil around is.
How do you get your money back from that?. Can you even tell? What if the oil blows up your "supercar" that needs supercar oil.

Plenty of risk..

now if it was sealed motul metal cans.. those are harder to scam with.

I've had to use the eBay guarantee/PayPal buyer protection before, just once in all these years but I gotta say it was ZERO hassle. eBay ended up refunding it so I didn't have to use the PayPal buyer protection but it was there in case. From that point on I always use PayPal for purchases on eBay...it makes it pretty much risk free.

Yeah, I don't know how you would know without having an analysis done I guess. Scammers these days are pretty crafty and could probably easily do what you described.

If seller is taking $15 shipped he's only making a few bucks per jug after shipping and fees. Seems fishy.

Hopefully it works out. I agree I wouldn't trust this in an expensive engine without a VOA on each bottle, in which case there goes your savings. Now, in a DD beater, if it LOOKS and POURS like oil, I'd run it!

This is one of those times you use PayPal they will refund you if the deal goes south. Had that happen one time and they paid and eBay threw to seller off eBay.
