Agree or disagree????
Go to Walmart.com homepage, scroll down almost to bottom to "money saving tips" and under that heading click on "printable coupons." You'll find a coupon to print for $4 off a 5 qt jug of ANY "Valvoline" motor oil. You can print the coupon twice for a total of $8 off of two jugs.

Knowing that lots and lots on T'ers are somewhat frugal (like myself) I think you'll have to admit that the above will be some of the "best oil" you can put in your T!!!!!! (My dear wife got these coupons for me and I'm headed to Walmart later today.)

This should "put to rest" the "correct oil" discussions, right?

That's a good deal for motor oil.
If it were me I would buy 10w-30.
If its not Wal-Mart I go to the nearest Dollar store or Auto-Zone and but the cheapest 10w-30 I can find. Works great here in Texas.

John: I really don't care for wallymart, but they seem to sell things like oil for A LOT CHEAPER than our dollar stores or auto parts places. The wife checked auto zone and they also had a $4 coupon, but their jugs were priced much higher even after 4 bucks off........ Better for me to save rather than them to "prosper at my expense!"

The instructions for the coupon printer were written in Microsoftese, but I figured out how to translate them to Macish.

Great deal, thanks!

I hope there weren't any trojan horses or special Walmart consumer tracking software in that special coupon printing program that I had to download to print the coupons!

You can bet if Walmart had a way to make a buck, they would do it. I live in a small town where Walmart is practically the only game in town. We still don't go to Walmart. We buy groceries at the grocery store, toiletries at the drug store, and oil at the auto parts. Is it cheaper at Walmart? Maybe. I couldn't say, 'cause I don't go there to compare prices. I darken their door maybe 2-3 times a year.

I used the coupon last night, and it made the price 75 less than the Wal-Mart house brand. I use the locally owned market for groceries and the locally owned drug store for toothpaste, but for stuff like this the only choice here is between Wal-Mart and other chain stores.

I in my high mileage T motor use 20/50 Valvoline. Great stuff.
