I've heard good reviews on supertech too. I use M1 as well, but dont forget, there is an added premium just for the name, no other reason.

Exactly. It can't be THAT bad if guys over at bobtheoilguy had it tested and it got pretty great ****** reviews. It's not like walmart has a refinery. It's not coming from walmart.

Alittle update to my last post. QS does not make supertech oil anymore. Mobil 1 and Warren Petroleum Products make it.

"just an update to this older post. Quaker State no longer makes Super Tech. I had asked for some updated specs some time back and QS told me they no longer package it for Walley World. Now Mobil and Warren do that I know of. I'm guessing if the bottom of the bottle has a G on it, its Mobil (this bottle even looks like a Mobil bottle. If the bottle has WPP (Warren Petroleum Products?) on it, its made by warren. The bottle is different looking from the G stamped bottle. Where I'm from in the South, both are on the shelf at times. And the gallon jug and the quart are always with the gallon being a G and the quarts having WPP on them. The labels even have different wording on them. The synthetic quarts of 10w30 says it has an add. to help older cars seals...the gallon synthetic doesn't. I guess Walley World will contract the cheapest supplier that will meet the specs. "

I like the German Castrol. Its the only oil my engine dosent burn. I've tried RP,Amsoil, and Mobil 1. My car burnt all those up like nothing for somre reason. Im not saying any of those are bad. I liked how it performed with RP and Amsoil, but it just ate it up.

Nothing at all wrong with ST synthetic, I run it and GC at times. Just because you don't know about something and it's not expensive doesn't mean it's crap. Do some research and I think you'll be shocked.

Ive been running ST in my motor for a while. It holds up ok. Although I did put M1 in last time cause I was too lazy to drive to walmart.
