I went to an O'Reilly's last month to get oil for the truck. Shelves were basically empty. A few quarts here and there. Most were sewing machine synthetics for the new autos. I usually use 10w-40. Only one jug of Pennzoil 10w-30 and some quart bottles. I hadn't used Pennzoil since 1977, bought and used it anyway. On top of that, when did they start making 5 quart jugs instead of 4 quart jugs? Yes I grabbed a quart bottle also. Well, truck hasn't blown up with Pennzoil nor with the extra quart in the crankcase!

I saw a few of those 5qt jugs today, too bad they weren’t Rotella. The Isuzu in my 310 takes right about 3 gallons of oil. First time I changed the oil it surprised the heck out of me, I’d never worked on a motor before that held that much.
