I was at my local Farm and Fleet over the weekend and I saw Peak synthetic for 3.99 a quart (this is the regular, non-sale price). Although I have been using PP regularly for 5000 to 7000 oci's, I would be willing to try this stuff because of the price. Does anyone have any experiences with this oil? Thank you.

I thought it was made by Omni. Not sure, though.
Experts are often wrong, but rarely in doubt.

I didn't use Peak synthetic but I used Peak conventional in S2000 and LS400. It is as good as any conventional oil for 6-7k OCI.

On their website/MDS, they don't say anything about meeting Ford's nor Chrysler's spec (or any for that matter). For me, it will stay on the shelf.
