Motor oil info!


I know oil is usually a brought up topic on here so im just gonna drop this in here for a bit of information. There is also a part in here about the Super Tech Walmart brand oil. I have never used the ST oil I always use Motorcraft in my car but when I was in WM last night and I seen the Super Tech brand high mileage and synthetic I decided to read in on it a bit on the net. Here is an interesting LONG read on the oil topic but this is what stood out to me on the ST brand from WM.

"For all you guys out there that are looking to use some great oil at a great price... I have a shocker for you: The oil that Wal-Mart sells under their house name (Super-Tech) is very good quality oil. In many tests done over the last year or so, the 'Super-Tech' oil was superior to many name-brand oils. The oil is supplied to Wal-Mart by Pennzoil/Quaker-State. It uses the same high-quality group II/III base stocks as their name oil, but uses an off-the shelf additive package. That doesn't mean it is lesser than the 'Z-7' or whatever additive package they advertise about. Most oil companies register their particular name-brand additive package formulas, so they cannot be 'copied' by another manufacturer. That way they can advertise about 'Nothing is the same as...' and all that kind of crap. An off the shelf package is available to whatever packager wants to buy it. So it is a little more economical for the packager. This also prevents stores like Pep-Boys, Wal-Mart etc...from advertising that their 'house' oil is 'same as Q/S but at a cheaper price.' Wal-Mart's 'Super-Tech' dino oil is less than a buck a quart, and their synthetic brand is $2.97/Qt. Great deal. Their 'Super-Tech' oil filters are also very high quality, unfortunately much better than Fram. Fram has really gone downhill in the last several years, ever since 'Allied-Signal' bought them. At less than $3.00 apiece, the 'S-T' filters are a smokin' bargain."

That was pulled from like halfway down the page! This is the link< Oil

Great find! I have always been impressed with their oils...even without doing an analysis. I use their high mileage oil in my 250,000 mile Chevy, and the lifters dont seem to tick quite as much as before. Plus oil consumption has gone down a little.

Plus I am a Wal-Mart associate, so i get a discount as well
