Deal Details

Last Edited by ut84088 March 24, 2011 at 01:28 PM
I went to Autozone and purchased valvoline 10/40 4-stroke ATV oil ($3.99/quart). Upon checkout I noticed that it was discounted $2.00 per quart (showed motorcycle oil discount on the receipt). The cashier and I were both surprised because it is not advertised anywhere. He said he has never seen the atv/motorcycle oils discounted.

To make sure it was not a fluke, I went back and purchased more. Seems to be if you purchase 1 quart you are charged $3.99, but if you buy more than 1 they are discounted $2.00 off each quart. Worked on both the ATV and Motorcycle oils by Valvoline. I did not try the Castrol but it may be worth checking.

I cleaned out the autozone closest to me of all their atv/mc oil in 10/40 and will be going to another. I need to stock up for summer and $1.99 per quart is a smoking deal.

***UPDATE***

Others have confirmed the discount also applies to the Castrol MC/ATV 4 stroke oil.

I wouldn't think - only thing you have to watch out for is that any bike that uses a wet clutch should not be filled with any oil that says "high efficiency" or anything to that effect. I wouldn't imagine a motorcycle-specific oil would have any of that though.

I think the ATV/MC oils are the same but there is supposed to be a difference in ATV/MC oil vs regular car oils. Something to do with additives that can mess up a wet clutch.

BTW.. I went to another auto zone for a couple more that actually had a sign up near the motorcycle oils that said $2 off any quart so this deal may not be specific to Valvoline but I did not try the castrol.

Autozone had it for $2 qt a few years ago in an advertised special. I think it was spring 2008. I have not seen it that cheap since. Thankfully I cleaned out my three local stores of the 10w40 and it's lasted me until last summer. I haven't had any problems running it in my Honda VFR800 at all.

awesome deal...I didn't realize it but I actually tried buying a qrt yesterday with the $5 off coupon and I threw in a filler of rags which I needed anyways. The total came to $5 but it wouldn't let me use the coupon, so I paid for it anyways. Went back and got another qrt today. I'm switching from the valvoline that I'm using right now to the Castrol 4T stuff. Both times I only purchased 1 qrt so you don't need to buy two. But, you need at least 1.5+ quarts anyways so I don't know why you would get <1 Stick Out Tongue

At my local AZ (Rocky Mount, VA), Mobil 1 V-twin 20w50, normally $9.99/qt is also discounted $2.00 per quart, making the price $7.99/qt. Maybe worth checking out if you are a regular user of the Mobil 1 V-twin oil.

Not saying there's been any misinformation posted on this subject thus far or anything, but...consult the manual for your machine when it comes to selecting or not selecting a suitable motor oil for you car/boat/bike/atv/etc.

I've seen a whole lot of hooey posted all over the 'net on the topic by people that aren't qualified to comment. Your manuals will say what is recommended as far as service classification and viscosity go. If your manual is older, you may need to do a little research because an older service classification ID may have been superseded. The info is out there as to which newer service classifications cover the older designations. Don't ever rely on word-of-mouth information from random strangers on the internet for stuff like this.

True. Read the manual for your bike/ATV. Also, I would like to point out that Rotella-T has oils that aren't marketed at the motorcycle crowd that are JASO MA certified. You can find them at Wal-mart and the savings is significant over putting motorcycle/ATV specific oils. In your bike. After all, a certification to spec is a certification to spec. After that, it is all marketing. Do your research.

I'm all for the MC deals! Although I strongly recommend using Rotella T6 for your mototcycle deals, we should make this deal go FP if it is indeed national. I'll be checking out my local autozone today.

I was just reading a forum that recommend Rotella T6 for the Suzuki C50

Looking at a 11K miles 2005 C50 and thinking for longevity, to start oil changes with Rotella synthetic.

Great info. I've never heard of Rotella T oil and I own a C-50. What does the Rotella price for at Walmart?
