Probably won’t last long, not a super great “sale” but not bad considering normal Valvoline pricing.

5W-30 5QT*3 - $59.45
5W-30 5QT - $19.83
0W-20 and 5W-30 1QT*6 Cases - $29.10

Best oil, but If I could buy it at a store down the street for a couple of dollars more that's what I'd do to circumvent

both evil Amazon and the terrible environmental impact of shipping heavy, bulky goods all around the country.

Now if I had a service station and I was going to buy 10 cases and had cost pressures - that's another thing all together.

And when you compare Amazon who largely gets items freighted to them straight from the manufacturer how is it any less environmentally friendly for them to get it straight from the manufacturer and then ship it directly to you compared to a smaller store who probably got it from a distributor who got it from the manufacturer which means that your goods had to be shipped twice and then you had to drive your car to the store and back home.

I stuff all ny broken down cardboard into a big garbage can. Once a month it Gorsuch back with the newspapers , plastic bottles and glass to the recycler at the 😾DUMP. Yea I’m not PC so I’m calling it as it really is. That’s where my Amazon leavings go and it’s all for free. I too hate sending Bezos a thin dime for those same reasons but these days it’s inevitable if you live in the country.

Pallet load shipment vs single item shipment.

I can pick up bulky items bi weekly during my grocery trip - so no SPECIAL wasteful trip required

Amazon MUST be stopped !

On another, hopefully more fun converstaion, blufbe95,, Would you know what transmission was factory stock in a '61 Chevrolet Biscayne 2 door post 409 hp/409 with a 4 speed.. I'm looking at a barn find in florida for short green. I'm assuming it has a hotchkiss 8.2 GM out back. The lady selling it doesn't know much about cars. BTW, I was born in Indianapolis in the 50's
