    None! I tow a boat weekly
    I’m running the Shell oil. Auto zone had it for $1.00 a quart. I bought all they had on the shelf. It’s good stuff.

    I also switched to the Rotella Gas Truck 0w-20. Our engines are not the quietest by nature, but the Rotella really quieted down the engine. I was running Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy and the Rotella seems to be a stouter thicker oil.

    Good thing. I thought it was just me. The 5.7 does seem quieter on RGT.

    They may have been doing an in-store deal. Let me try to find my receipt. May go back today to stock up.

    Edit: Can’t find receipt, but bank transaction was $23.60 for two 5 qt jugs. I’ll go back today and report.

    $11 per 5 qt for the 0w-20. Was not advertised on shelf. Thought it’d be same for the 5w-20, but was not.

    7 Once.jpg I bought a 1.75L jug of Presidente Brandy at the local grocery that had just opened to the public days before. When I got back to the house I looked at the receipt ~ $11.95 ~ quite a buy I thought.
    Well, turns out that was the price on the shelf for the 1L bottle instead but they only had the 1.75L bottle in stock ~ I suspect the incorrect price was put on that bigger jug. That was my lucky day.
    I just checked the price on that brandy ~ 1L bottle is $13.95 and they do not carry the larger 1.75L bottle. At another store it's north of $24.00

    The folks at Walmart could have easily priced the motor oil incorrectly just as the grocery store had done with my jug of brandy.

    The motor oil is as follows at my local Walmart store;
