    adding half the quart you did now will be ok, but no way in hell i'd run any oil, no matter how good its claim is, for 15k miles. 5k and im changing oil...since i run synthetic. if i was using regular dino oil....every 3k.

    My local "Costco" still had several hundred cases yesterday when I was there. It is sold in a 6-quart case, and it's cheaper than Wal-Mart.

    Yeah my wallly world and KMart was out or low with a sign at WW. I managed to get two setups the last time I was there.

    Costco is great. My friend has a business card he lets me borrow so its win-win. He gets the points & shop. I don't buy enough for the membership and let my card lapse. Nice deals to be had and good tip on the case price.

    I knew u were going to ask, I can't remember exactly, but it is 2-3 dollars cheaper than buying the 5-quart jug +1 single quart from Wal-Mart. Not a huge difference, but it does add up over time. :cool:

    Yup, mine just stocked 6 qt cases as well for something like $28. Unfortunately, it was a couple of weeks after I had to resort to buying a couple of 4 qt jugs at Napa for $30 ea.

    Hmm... This is why I have my next 5 oil changes sitting in my garage. LOL. Val SynPower which is what I have used for years was on special a while back. I bought like 8 cases.
