You should be able to get 0w40 at Wal-Mart for about $6.50 a quart. A regional chain in my area (Fleet Farm) carries it for a little less than that. No special orders for me

I've seen the Mobil1 0W40 5qt jug at Advance Auto Parts too. But nowhere near as cheap as Walmart.

This is not just a regular Wal Mart. It's a HUGE Walmart Superstore. It's called a SUPERSTORE. My local Walmart never has it either.

Thanks. Local Pep Boys in Albuquerque carries M1 0w40 in 5qt jug. Regular price is ~$40/jug.

Local Walmart supercenter does not carry M1 0w40 at all.

I recently found a trick for cheap price!

Find the local supplier that supplies local dealerships. In my area, the supplier is "Sapp Brothers Co.".

Example: OReilly sells Mobil1 ATF for $9.95/qt.
Sapp Brothers sells the exact same thing for $7.50/qt!

So look into local supplier.

You are dreaming, Mobil1 ATF is $9.95/qt. Walmart does not sell Mobil1 ATF any more.
I checked recently and know for fact.

The point I tried to make is "local supplier to dealer".

The example I used was for "ATF", but same analogy for engine oil.
