    Meh, it's all private label stuff anyway. Probably Mobile 1 or Pennzoil if I had to guess.

    I wonder if Amazon is actually designing this in house or if it's somehow rebranded?

    It seems like a strange product line for them to get into.

    After the $12 rebate and finding the Mobil 1 synthetic oil on sale, I ended up paying $12 for a 5-quart jug. Why not stock up then and save even on the Super Tech Synthetic oil?

    19.99 for 6 quarts synthetic? Costco runs M1 case for $24.99 about every month or 2.

    I know with the last truck I owned for 18 years and this Tacoma, engine wear will not be what does it in but rust on the frame. I agree with that article and if people thought critically about the data behind oil and the hype that the expensive oil companies put out there to sell oil they would rethink their oil choices.

    Yep, been taking the time to spend a couple of dollars at the car wash to spray the undercarriage when we get snow now. Even in CO salt can be an issue, just not as bad as back east.
