The best online deal that I've gotten in on recently was Valvoline Maxlife Synthetic 5w-30 at $22.20 for 6 quarts. In my thinking, considering that dino oil goes for around that, a reputable seller even of generic branded synthetic oil like Napa is going to be at least as good as the best dino and probably quite a bit better. People spend a lot of time discussing which synthetic is best, but these days I don' think you can go wrong if the oil meets your car's specs
What is the normal price for this oil? I am seeing $3.49/qt which is $17.45 for 5. Add in a $3.99 filter and the total is $21.44 which makes this deal a $1.45 savings. Is the oil normally $3.49/qt or is this a sale price, I can't tell from the website.
Ordered 4 kits assuming the normal price of this oil is well over what it shows now.

For some cars that is a big difference but for most cars that do not have any problems it will not make a real difference.
I managed a Jiffy Lube back in the day (no jokes please). My boss sent me to an oil seminar, led by a Penzoil rep. Obviously, he said that Penzoil was the best synthetic known to man. BUT- he freely admitted that the difference between the best synthetic oil and the worst synthetic oil was minimal. And even the worst sytnthetic oil was light years better than the best conventional oil.
