If you change your own oil, for once you might be able to trust the person that did something to your vehicle.

Costco oil or Wal-Mart oil will suffice. Expensive oil just costs more.

All prememium brand oils will work. If you change at proper intervals, all brands will work just fine.

Citgo oil was on sale last week at Blain's Farm and Fleet for $1.99 a qt. after the sale price and rebate. You missed the sale. Honestly Coonman, it isn't going to matter with the truck you're driving,just get the cheapest oil you can right now and use it.



Now the guys in MN and northern WI can go to Fleet/Farm and get the 5qt jugs of Citgo oil for $5.99 after the sale price and rebate this week through the 16th.

Citgo oil in the gray jug is synthetic blend. It's not full synthetic.There is a difference. Please one of the guys on here that's a mechanic look at this thread and reply.

there is a sale 2.19 a quart for the 5w30 and 5w20

it works just fine it is bottled for blains by citco

https://www.farmandfleet.com/produc...-fleet-premium-5w30-grade-motor-oil.html

if you perfer full synthetic https://www.farmandfleet.com/produc...fleet-5w30-full-synthetic-motor-oil.html it is 21.45 for 5 of the 1 quart bottles a savings over the on sale Valvoline synthetic in the larger jug


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

I'd run a high mileage non synthetic , 10w30

Unless you're relying on leaks to keep the rust down on your undercarriage

You really don't need synthetic if you change your oil regularly, in my opinion. I've been using conventional oil in my 2000 v-6 Tacoma, and after 713,000+ miles it uses a quart every 2,000 miles. Motor never been rebuilt, only rear main seal replaced. Oil and wix filter is changed once a month, which is between 3 and 4 thousand miles.

I saw a test comparison of synthetic oils; Mobil One, Valvoline, and Amazon Basic. The Amazon and Mobile One were comparable in the tests. The cost of the Amazon was quite a bit lower than the Mobile One.

I've been using Valvoline synthetic in the past. I might try the Amazon Basic my next oil change.
