On my usual "BITOG-er stroll" in the door, by the oil wall, and back out, I saw a new little clearance rack. 0w-20 Gas Truck/Castrol GTX 20w-50, 10w-40 for $2/qt and jugs of Valvoline "Modern Engine" Synthetic 5w-20, PYB 10w-30, STP 10w-30 on sale for $10. Picked up the modern vehicle and a couple quarts of gas truck. Seems some select AZs have a smattering of this still left according to the clerk.

Valvoline jug says for 2012 engines and newer... hope my 2005 Crown Vic won't explode with that oil in it LOL LOL LOL

By using the VME you actually just "up spec'd" your '05 Vic! grin2

It seems that all the AZ's near me sent their remaining 'Clearance ' oils back (to AZ hdqtrs.) around the middle of January.....that's what one store told me....and it seems to be true. I actually saw a plastic container full of RGT (which I wasn't interested in at the time) and VME 5w30 (not my viscosity) ready to be shipped back. I now wish I had snagged a few of the RGT 5w20. In the past I think they kept the 'Clearance ' oils around until they sold.

Yup, I hit some AZ stores sat evening and one store manager said same thing "Oh we sent those back to the DC, They're long gone"

Even 3-4 years ago my (Colo) store was eventually sending it back somewhere. One day the last little bit just vanished and I found it on a cart in back on my way to the, um, bathroom....yeah that's it I was looking for the bathroom....

Cheer up! It's Presidents Day!

Also, how about the mobil thread getting deleted again? I question the admins. Why delete a whole thread because of a bad apple? Just delete their posts. Bad job.

Did you question them? That's the correct thing to do in a situation like this.

I just sent them an email. I am still dumbfounded at how horribly that is handled. As if the whole thread was offensive. Anyone else agree? Really annoys me.

Got a quick response from an admin. Said it was because it was an obvious price error and walmart has billions of dollars and lawyers while bitog does not.

No mention of it being due to squabbling. I do like the one clown's theory that it was a bitog hacker that got access to Walmart's site and risked everything to reduce the price on a couple jugs of oil. Pure Gold.

Unfounded paranoia shrug but whatever, their site, their rules. Is what it is... coffee
