If you make it 3x 5w30, it's $72

Still a more than decent price for 5qt bottles, but far from earth shattering

Is PUP everything that Ultra was, I've yet to see PUP in person

When I got to it the cheapest bundle I could make was with Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 0w20 but they only had one bottle left, so I had to select the next cheapest option which was plain Platinum for $.53 more for two of my oil selections, in total it was $47.08 before tax, still not too shabby, been needing to pick up a scan tool, so now I have one.

The free normally $60 OBDII scanner is what makes this a deal.

I've read some less than impressive reviews about the scan tool app and how they may try to sell you additional features, if I end up not liking it and take the scan tool back how does Walmart deal with returning one item in a bundle? Looking at the breakdown on the order confirmation it almost looks like I could return the scanner and get back $39.99+ tax and have only paid like $7-8 for the three jugs of oil?

That Fix'd looks like my $20 Carista which is similar to the $3 ELM327. More than likely it's a "real" ELM and not the knockoff that can't read all protocols.

It will/should work well with Torque Pro, which has pretty good PID reverse-engineering support for popular cars. For my prius it's amazing.

Buy this deal for the oil, give the dongle to someone who needs an OBD reader.

No, this isn't my cart, this is just the breakdown given on the order invoice sent to my email.

Finnally got my oil today, the PUP was shipped in it's own box and they put it in a big ziplock bag, it arrived in immaculate condition had an August of 2019 datecode on the bottom, The PP jugs however where shipped in the same box, luckily they didn't rupture but the box had a hole kocked in the side and the jugs got some nice dents and creases, they were really fresh though manufactured on March 9th.

I'm planning on keeping the scanner, it's really the primary reason I bought it, I'm not really sure what I'm gonna put the 0w20 yet. It works, I don't care for their app, the app tries to get you to upgrade to their premium service, maybe I could get it to work with a third party app I haven't look into it, but it worked as a basic code scanner, the CEL was on, on my mom's Odyssey and it was running rough, ran the scanner on it, was giving code P2646 that Rocker Arm oil pressure switch voltage was too low, took the car to the mechanic had them replace it and now the car runs fine again, well as well as a 2008 Odyssey with nearly 200k on the clock will run.

If you are using android, I prefer the Torque app. The lite version is free and the pro is $4.95. I have reinstalled the pro on multiple phones after an upgrade with no additional charges.

Only thing about the fix'd sensor is I'm not sure how to pair it without using the fix'd app, I think that it'll only pair with the device through the fix'd app I can't find anything about what pin to use to pair it.

You could install the torque lite app and see if it will sync with the fix'd dongle. Doesn't cost anything to try the lite version and if it won't communicate just delete the app.

The PIN 1234 worked to pair it, it works with Torque Lite.
