    5qts. of Valvoline fully Synthetic & STP Oil Filter $24.99

    For Penzoil synthetic it was $29.99


    Auto Zone & Advanced have the Penzoil & Valvoline Synthetic on sale, w/free oil filter. Advanced ends Jan 3 2009

    Picked up the Valvoline today. Told them to keep the oil filter (since I bought a case of oil filters from the Toyota dealer, $43 for 10.)

    Mobil 1 is not going out of business. It was from way back when the hurricane hit Houston. Production didn't pick up fast enough & stores have run low.

    This is what lsocoee said. Even if it is made in a lab/factory, it could have been made in a storm raveged area to cause loss of production.

    I used to use valvoline full synthetic until I saw one of those chemical tests done the compare how oils break down. I now use Mobile 1 15,000 mile full syunthetic. $7.50 a quart + 1 quart of lucas full synthetic stabalizer. I always change it before the 15,000 miles though. I don't trust any oil to last that long. Thanks to genxer36 for that previous post. I appreciate saving $10 on my next oil change.
