I was wondering if anyone knew who makes B@S oil? I bought a 18 ounce yellow bottle of it for a lawn mower oil change ($1.67) Wally world was out of supertech and the cheapest 30 wt oil I could fine there that was in stock was Pennzoil for $2.38/quart. Thanks

At one time Sun Oil and CITGO made it for them. Not sure who makes it now. There is a compound blender in Combined Locks, WI by the name of U.S. Oil that could be making it for them.

I'm assuming that the Brigg's contract, for blending & packaging small engine oils, moves around as Johnny indicates.

The current MSDS info at the Brigg's site lists the following vendors:

SAE 30 Conventional - Olympic Oil of Cicero, IL

5W-30 Synthetic - Morraine Liquid Technologies Oconomowoc, WI

I saw that at Walmart too. My mower takes 20 oz of SAE 30. Advance Auto had Pennzoil dino in a 20 oz bottle (handy). However, I picked up a full Quart of Rotella T for about the same price, or less...

You pay more for the custom packaging. Some folks just don't want to have 12 oz left over. Oh, there is nothing special about the B&S oils. Any good 30W or Syn will do just fine.

Save the 20oz bottle and refill it with whatever oil is your favorite.

Maybe they'll send me a free t-shirt if I use all B@S parts and oil, lucky me!

I wonder who makes the sears crafstman oil... I just bought a cheapo 4.5hp crafstman rear bagger/mulchermower, and it came with a little 18oz bottle of oil. It was black and tall, unlike the wal mart stuff (and B&S oil used to be in short black bottles IIRC). Ill definitely be keeping this sears bottle, its a great size.
