AC-Delco Full-Synthetic Motor Oil 5W-30 (dexos1) $3.99

Recommended Posts


They filled the back order at that price, it's coming this week. :D

The website still says:

This item is currently on backorder with no eta date from the manufacturer. You may place an order for this item on line or call 1-800-345-4545 and speak with one of our technical sales representatives to discuss your best options!
(Option 2 for sales, then option 2 for a technical sales rep)

They must be only filling the backorders and at that price, I'm sure they sold a bunch.

I'm still not  sure about using full synthetic oils. I've heard they are harder on Gaskets,Seals, O rings. Is that just a myth or what?o.O

I've never heard that really and the big difference is that synthetic oil doesn't break down as fast and offers additives that are friction modifiers. When oil breaks down and loses it's ability to properly lubricate, you get more friction which takes a toll on internal engine parts with wear and gumming up the engine, which is why it's important to regularly change oil. Repair shops used to (may still today) offer oil flushes to clean a gummed up engine. Today, clearances are much smaller and tighter and in some cases you have to use synthetic oil. I would say synthetic on newer cars more than older makes a difference and could extend the life of an engine. Once oil breaks down, turns black, no good.

Looks like its off of backorder and I have yet to find this for a better price! I had ordered enough for free shipping with $100 order.

I just ordered this again and its still 3.99 a quart. I ordered enough to get free shipping and used code SAVE30 for another $10 off. Came out to like $3.63 a quart after tax and free shipping. Can't beat that!

So a quick update on this, I still have not received this order and got a couple of emails saying they are out of stock. Supposed to ship today from the manufacturer.
