Kirkland Signature Synthetic Oil - 12/03/19 02:32 PM

I stumbled across this while searching for Mobil 1.

$29.99 for two 5-qt jugs. Free shipping.

Dexos approval.

I wonder who is the blender.

Costco just manages to equal Walmart's price on dexos1 oil. (supertech dexos1)
But you don't have to buy 2, and no membership fees.
Bentonville AR wins again.

Interesting, I wonder if it comes from Warren, same company that blends Supertech and AmazonBasics oil.

$24.99 is a great price for 10 quarts of synthetic oil, I have not seem it at my local Costco but curious what flavors will they offer it in store.

I think it's warehouse specific. My two local Costco warehouses, for example, only have Chevron Supreme in stock right now.

Re: Kirkland Signature Synthetic Oil - 12/03/19 03:43 PM

This is good oil, I just wish more would go to 6 quart packaging like the Havoline box as I need 12 quarts to change each of my vehicles.

The 6 quart Havoline box rocks.

Too bad, Costco being the responsible company they are, didn't go this route.

They are so concerned about shelf space and truck space and plastic usage, this is surprising.

CVX seems to keep SmartChange a WM-exclusive.

Costco does have a "business" arm that services C-stores, offices and restaurants - I can see Chevron distributing their PitPacks for shops that do oil changes.

Isn't that the truth. In addition, Costco pays their employees fair wages while Wal-Mart does not. One family of fat cats haul in all the money.

It depends on your individual situation. My annual spend more than pays for my Executive Membership. Executive Members get 2% back on all Costco purchases in addition to the Citi 2%, so that's 4% back.

From what it appears so far, this is another house-brand synthetic oil that is Dexos approved. It is probably adequate for shorter intervals on non-demanding applications but I would probably consider something more robust for any problematic TGDI application.

Agreed, plus there is 3% on restaurants, and 1% on everything else outside of Costco. For me, gas 4% alone pays my membership.

The GF-5, SN+, D1G2 Kirkland oil will perform just fine in a Honda 1.5T oil diluter.
Any knowledgeable owner knows to change the oil at 5k miles in that POS design of an engine.

If you need a rebate to purchase a five quart jug(s) at $3.26 per quart, you probably should sell your car and buy a bicycle.

That reminds me of the 20-something in the auto parts store last month who was loudly bragging to his two friends about having just dropped $4,000 on new after market tires and rims for his new car.

As he continued bragging, he pointed to a well known premium oil filter and said “there’s no way in HE** I’d ever spend $8 on an oil filter for any car.”

I wonder if he got a rebate on those rims and rubber?

My Miniature German Schnauzer might have such heritage traits.
I do like my steaks less bloody in the center. That means thinner cuts when on the outdoor grille.

Re: Kirkland Signature Synthetic Oil - 12/04/19 01:00 AM

Ha! I have a mini schnauzer dachshund mix myself! He dislikes Russians and Bolshevism in general...imagine that!

I like my steaks thick...2 inches minimum but I eat them very rare. My wife likes them well though and I simply butterfly them. Have you ever tried it? Upon completion on the grill you can fold them back over...makes for a truly juicy well done steak

Re: Kirkland Signature Synthetic Oil - 12/04/19 01:29 AM

In all seriousness they are both what Toyota calls “super white”. LOL. I’m not very adventurous. Same tires too...BFG All-terrain

I have a reason though...It’s a single stage paint and quite tough. I do a fair amount of off-roading and it hides scratches remarkably well and rubs out nicely as you don’t have to worry about getting through the clear. I generally don’t buff them out often...once every five years or so. Or at least last vehicles...these are pretty new yet.

My previous taco, a super white 95 made it over the 500k mark on the original engine and trans!

All stores carry the same major brands. As for store brands it shouldn’t surprise anyone that these items may come out of the same factory wherever that is located.

Towels for example, whether you go to Wally’s or Target, Macy’s or Costco, they will be the same. Different labels are the only difference.

Re: Kirkland Signature Synthetic Oil - 12/04/19 04:14 PM

I like Walmart for some things and Costco for others.

Costco has numerous Kirkland items that are truly high quality. They definitely find quality items to rebrand. You don’t see the same level of commitment for all things at Walmart or other chain stores.

Costco’s service is usually better, and I appreciate that they do take better care of their employees.

I’ve used supertech full syn, and I wouldn’t have any issues with Kirkland (in fact I might prefer it just to support the company).

I do like the Havoline smart change boxes from Walmart - so I’ll likely stick with those for the time being.

Except the gasoline. At least in the Tampa area. I used to drive fuel and Murphy was by far the worst. Now before you say it all comes from the same terminal in Tampa Murphy has their own.

Re: Kirkland Signature Synthetic Oil - 12/04/19 05:17 PM

Hummm . . . No question the price per quart is excellent. Before buying it, however -- and certainly before using it -- I think it would be a very good idea to at least know what's in it, yes? How does its chemistry compare with the majors? You know, the usual stuff that those who sign on to this board obsess about.

Re: Kirkland Signature Synthetic Oil - 12/04/19 05:28 PM

Well, it is licensed API SN PLUS as well as GM dexos 1 Gen 2. Are you saying someone here is able to read a PDS or VOA and substantively determine that another oil with those same licenses is better or worse than this one?
Posted By: Doublehaul

Re: Kirkland Signature Synthetic Oil - 12/04/19 05:53 PM

All about the certs for me...i cannot and would not assume one oil is superior to the other when they hold the same certs.

To me...Dexos is Dexos and MB 229.5 is MB 229.5. The differences are in marketing and subsequent perception which for many here...is reality

It has the same dexos license numbers as supertech and amazon basics.

It’s going to be perfectly serviceable oil. Warren makes good stuff.

Shoes and clothes are of the worst quality you can come by at WM, also food is just groceries, costco cafe is amazing food and cheap. Costco warranties all their electronics for an additional year whether you buy the extended warranty or not. Also, big families can do the executive membership which gives 2% back on everything which almost covered my entire membership fee last year. Most walmart products don't hold a candle to the quality of what costco sells, plus costco backs everything up, no questions asked.

Something to think about as my wife's 2018 Mustang GT takes 10 quarts and I change it by the oil change monitor so it doesn't really go over 5K miles. She drives it fairly easy so it for sure doesn't get extreme service.

I feel like walking into a real life version of the People of Wal-Mart everytime I go into a WM. Though, the one about 10 miles from the parent's place isn't terrible. It's mostly retirees and pensioners that staff the people-facing parts of the store.

In all seriousness, the WM near me isn’t terrible, but I live in a nice area. I’ve never run into someone playing the harmonica (badly) in a checkout line at a Costco. I can’t say that about Walmart.

Eh, shop wherever makes you happy. I do want to try the Kirkland oil though.

Re: Kirkland Signature Synthetic Oil - 12/05/19 02:04 AM

It really does depend on location. The Costco near me has a large homeless camp adjacent to the parking lot. A lot of car break-in’s and generally all the problems one would expect happen there. The Walmart is a half mile away and similar stuff happens.

This place turns into a scene right out of the Omega Man after dark.

Re: Kirkland Signature Synthetic Oil - 12/05/19 02:07 AM

I love Costco...wish we had one close by. The meat and coffee alone are enough for me to lay out for the membership!

I like Walmart too...I’ve had fantastic luck with their great value brand. Best peanut butter I’ve ever had, veggies, canned goods all superior to the National brands imho. I even like their Ole Roy dog food...cheap and my dog loves it! I think Walmart refuses to put their reputation on the line for inferior products In their house brands...they have a lot to loose.

The ONLY thing I’ve ever been really disappointed in at Walmart is beef...it’s horrible. Pork and chicken is first class...but the beef is not fit for human consumption imho

The produce isn’t great but it is t great at any of our grocery stores so who knows...we grow and can most of our own anyways.

Kirkland Signature oil is $23.99 at the store so picking it up would be a better option. Making it $2.40 per quart, excluding tax. Very good deal.

The member base at Costco is near the top of the evolutionary ladder. Worth the membership fee!

If I needed oil, I would consider it.

Isn't that the truth. In addition, Costco pays their employees fair wages while Wal-Mart does not. One family of fat cats haul in all the money.


Fair wages according to whom? They start in my neck of the woods at $14 an hour, which is higher than others in the area and last I checked, nobody was forced to work there. It's a free market economy, so if the wages weren't fair, nobody would work there.

With the rebate, I picked up Shell Rotella Gas Truck for 10 bucks per 5 quart jug at Autozone. That's a much better deal for what I believe is better oil than this, although this is still pretty good.

What's a "fair wage" for dragging an item over a scanner?

The grocery stores put up with this over paid non-sense for years-until they finally agreed to a Union Contract that allowed them to bring in newer employees at lower wages.

Re: Kirkland Signature Synthetic Oil - 12/25/19 08:57 AM

I read a lot about Warren Distributing but I never see any UOAs posted. I always read about it in general terms of "its a good oil" but dont see anything posted to back that assertion up.

Not too many people want to risk their car for an off name brand so at the end of the day they go to Walmart and grab some Mobil 1.

It's enough that I don't have to subsidize them with food stamps even if they're working full time...

Clearly, Costo's plan of paying working a living wage is working for them. In a world where brick and mortar is dead, they're thriving--despite paying a lot for people to run a scanner...

How Costco Actually Makes Money
The everything-in-bulk store offers customers great deals. That's great for customer satisfaction, but it means the real money needs to come from somewhere else.

Everyone has a favorite Costco (NASDAQ:COST) item. Some love the four-pound bags of Kirkland trail mix; others can't make a trip to the warehouse retailer without getting a $1.50 hot dog and soda combo in the food court.

No matter the product, it seems Costco manages to give its customers exceptional value on pretty much every item in the store. That's great for customers, but investors might wonder: "OK, but how does this company actually make money, then?"

Check out the latest earnings call transcript for Costco.

We're here to answer that question with a video from our YouTube channel! (A full transcript follows the video.)



Editor's note: The paid members count in the video is in thousands.

Narrator: You might think that Costco is your average retailer... but it's not.

The "everything in bulk" store sells cleaning supplies, jeans, pet food, and anything in-between, but Costco doesn't actually make much money on the merchandise it sells.

In this video, we're going to break down exactly where the cash really comes from for Costco.

According to the company's 2018 results, it sold $138 billion in merchandise -- that's a lot of Kirkland brand trail mix and discount prescription glasses.

The products they sold cost the company $123 billion, leaving $15 billion for the business.

BUT WAIT! We also have to account for all the company's retail employees, pallet trucks, and store overhead expenses that enable Costco to sell those goods and give away those sweet, sweet free samples.

All those costs combined totaled nearly $14B.

So we've got:

Sales of $138 billion.
Cost of goods sold of $123 billion.
And selling, general, and administrative costs of $14 billion.
That leaves us with just $1 billion dollars... but the company reported over $3 billion in net income for the year. So where's the extra money coming from?

Costco's real source of income: its memberships.

In order to shop at Costco, you need to be a member, and annual membership costs either $60 or $120, depending on the benefits an individual or business chooses.

Those membership fees add up over time: In the company's 2018 results, they said they collected $3.1 billion in membership fees.

So-yes-you are paying for that person to scan your items. So you can pay food stamps or membership fees. The purchasing of items in a warehouse DOES NOT pay for the cashier dragging items across a scanner. It's right from the company's earning statement.

I read the boxes of the Kirkland oil at Costco. Dexos1, gen 2. If it qualifies for that standard, there is nothing wrong with it.

LOL IKR...

What will a $25 UOA tell you of consequence of most any oil? I'm not sure that it tells you much more than the additive packs in various oils and if you have a head-gasket going bad or not, IMHO...

Personally I do go to Wal-mart to buy Mobil 1, when there's a rebate. Otherwise I'd be fine using Supertech Syn or any Warren oil. I think there are several PDS's/VOA's of Supertech around here where it looks very competitive with most any other syn oil...

No TopTier gas. Because if you aren’t driving a jalopy anyway, you should be grateful for the low price. Besides, who needs high detergent gas when you have the Sam’s Club satisfaction guarantee?

oils blended by the same blender vary per specs of the buyer, so even thou many oils meet the same specs there are some differences that may or prolly may not matter. girlfriends oil drinkin 2013 malibu loved-used more of the amazon basics 5-40 than the liquimoly 5-40 similarly priced blend, same but different! consumers get gouged regularly as long as they continue to support big brand names that support racing + advertise, there are NO free lunches!! i live in the land of taxes + a lot of crooked politicians PENNA! so our gas thats highly taxed costs more while we drive on very CRAPPY roads in need of repair, not to mention the states liquor monolopoly that just cost me more for some NEW YEARS CHEER!!

Costco.com is your friend. They have other weights. About $5 more, but is delivered.
It does take about a week to get; at least that's what it took for me to get 0w20.

Good luck.

Yea its not only shipped from Warren but also made/packaged after you order. I got my case of it yesterday, the 23rd, and the bottle shows it was packaged on the 20th. Same day it shipped. Thats some fresh oil. smile

Ordered mine 1/17 and it arrived yesterday with a 1/23 packaging date. Shipped direct from Warren’s Council Bluff, IA facility. This is probably the freshest oil I’ve ever had in my stash.

Pennsylvania gas 5w30 only as well in store. This might be the case, country wide.

5W-30 here in Arizona. I would have liked to have seen 10W-30 option as my car calls for it.

Hate to burst your bubble but it's millions of years "old"! LOL
