I was at Rural king and noticed 2 different styles bottles of the same oil. One pretty square and the other one was some curvy thing. I should have taken pictures. I also noticed one was distributed out of Texas and the other Minnesota.

Yes. Citgo (the curvy one) going away. Warren Oil (NOT WPP out of Omaha) coming back in as a supplier. Been several threads on this in last few months.

There was a post on here a month or so that some ST was shifting over to Citgo, haven't checked local stores and I suspect that it was replacing another supplier and not WPP. Have no idea whether they were using the wavy Citgo bottle or not. I had one of those bottles a year or so ago and was happy to see Harvest King reverting back to Warren Oil. How do we know what them sneaky Venezuelans are doin'?

Citgo is just one of my preferred gasoline brands. No particular reason I suppose. it is top tier though. Not saying that makes there oil great. Just would like to try it. At 13 bucks I don't have a whole lot to lose.

A-lot of the Oil Change shops around here have bulk tanks of Citgo. I used it for 4-5 years in the late 90s-early-00s. I recall a little more consumption. But my engines always ran quiet.

Only brick & mortar I see it at is local ACE Hardware. The Citgo clan seems content on business with big stores as a house brand oil and various oil change shops

I'm going to hit my Rural King darn soon and take pics. Then we will know with CERTAINTY if its WPP made or really CITGO. Not some member claiming it's not this or that. That doesn't cut it

As far as I've seen, it was always Warren Oil except when from Citgo, never from WPP.

The quart of 10W-30 on the left is shaped like a Warren Oil bottle. RK oil used to state on the back who bottled it.

They are changing over. It may take another month to remove the old stock.
