Decent oil, 10w-30 is great for the 4.0. OCI determined through UOA, or manual if that's how you roll.

It’s a 4.0, anything from (recommended) 10W30 up to 20W50 works fine.

Cheaper to buy supertech and its at least of equal quality.

Depends on your location. O'Reilly is 0 miles away from where I work and Walmart is at least a 30 minute drive away, and gas isn't free. O'Reilly oil is fine, I haven't seen many UOAs of it but I've used it in various vehicles with no problems.

Walmart will ship a couple jugs/filters to your doorstep for free.

If it has the API starburst logo "for gasoline engines" and the classification donut that meets/exceeds your required spec, you can use it.
See the passenger car engine oil information provided here.

If you don't mind motor oil in a cardboard box, Havoline's 6qt smart change boxes sold through Walmart beat Supertech on price per quart. If you can meet a $35 floor, Walmart will deliver it to your doorstep for free.

I don’t know yet but OReillys keeps giving me $10 of $20 so I buy their Dexos full syn. Makes it a good price and I don’t have to go to Walmart.

Reasonable logic to me.

For me, it's a mile or so out of the way on my commute, so it's nothing for me to swing in. If it was more effort then I'd do bulk buys and/or looking into mailorder.

I'm trying hard to find a motor oil without the starburst or donut. Does that even exist?

Re: O Reilly motor oil - 05/18/19 01:19 AM

I just bought 5 quarts of O'Reilly full synthetic. Pretty good price with the coupon. If the coupons keep coming, I will keep buying. $22 oil becomes $12 oil.

If nothing else, this jug could be used to top off between oil changes. Just keep it in the back of car, along with other assorted "just in case" stuff.

I don't have a fancy car with a high performance engine. It's a Ford, which is not all that special.
Factory spec is synthetic blend. Just about any oil will do for me.

Sure, go to your local John Deere dealer. Their Plus 50 motor oils are CK/SN rated don't have either logos. Why are you even looking for one in the first place?

Buy a real oil
Store brand is bottom of the barrel spec stuff
That’s why it’s cheap

Wally World has better oil for the same price !!👍

They are close, but $11.99 for 5 quarts of FS D1G2 5w30 is at least a somewhat good deal if you have the $10 coupon.

I would have absolutely no issue with running O'Reilly synthetic in my family's Fords, Toyota and Hyundai @$11.99 for 5 quarts....if it's at the everyday price I'll go to WM for ST syn. or even QSUD....any of these 3 should do 7K in my Escape or Focus...or my kids cars mentioned earlier...

Omni products are produced in Shreveport, La. They have an excellent reputation. I wouldn't hesitate to use it

How does this myth still get spread? The spec is not synthetic blend it's API SN ISLAC GF-5. How the company reaches this spec it's up to them.

I have never kept oil in the back, side or front of the vehicle. Are such folks those without storage rooms or garages? Are you keeping all your tools in the trunk too?
Do some keep their top-off five quart jugs in their bedroom underwear drawer?

Some people don't have a garage. I have an apartment downtown. Parking is on the street, where ever I can find it. Yes, I do have a tool set in my car. I also have jack, jack stands, air compressor, and other extra fluid.... brake, transmission, washer, coolant.

You do what it takes. Sounds like you have really cool trunk. You'll be ready if something goes wrong with your car while most people have all their stuff at home.

Some people have auto club memberships. They will wait for a service truck to change their tire, jump start their battery, et cetera. It's all personal preference. I don't want to be the guy on the side of the road, in the middle of the night, in the rain......for hours. It must be a real luxury to be located where you have property. I know that some people have big garages, barns, or something similar where they can park sheltered and do anything they want to their cars. Awesome for those guys who actually have a lift.
