Supertech Oil is made by Warren Distribution.

Same company that makes Mag1, Amazon Oil, and other private label oils.

Newer bottles will meet all new SN+ oil standards.

There are strange videos of people using pans and blenders to test the oil against each other. I only know what's in them and how they do on engine tests.

Here are the main differences between a SuperTech or AmazonBasics vs. a Pennzoil Platinum or M1. Note the base oil is pretty much the same in both (typically Group III and you'll never find PAO in the cheap stuff)

Additive content (dispersants, detergents, antioxidants, friction modifiers etc etc.)
M1/PP have probably around 12-16% additives or more. More simply means longer life better protection. TBN around 10-11
AB/ST have the standard additive package so around 7-8% treat rate. TBN around 7-8
The more part typically is in the dispersants (keeps crud in the oil not the engine), antioxidants, and a little more or better detergent mix.

VM type
AB/ST use an OCP (olefin copolymer) it is the standard cheap stuff used in all conventional lubricants and semi-syns. Cheap, easy to use but tends to shear down faster and is dirtier when it oxidizes. PP/M1 use styrenics like a star polymer which are cleaner and resist shearing down better but cost more.
What does shear down mean, basically if you buy a 5W-30 after your engine shears it, eventually it becomes a 5W-20... now most oils have to stay in grade but we used to target just barely staying in grade for the cheap ones.

What did all the blah blah mean... not much if you change your oil every 5k or so and keep your car for only a few years. All will work fine in that situation including conventional.

If you go 10 or 15k drains, keep vehicles till the doors fall off, or have a turbo then you may want the good stuff

People can argue you are wasting money or which is their favorite. I'm just telling you what's in the bottles.

It's made by Warren, who also makes Amazon's branded oil.

Seems to be just fine. Maybe not appropriate for very long drain intervals. But if you are doing <7.5k oil changes I personally wouldn't feel bad about using it.

If you can wait and don't mind the rebate hassles, PP or M1 should come up cheaper eventually.

When you start with saying "someone at walmart told me" you should just stop there

Great deal for 5w-30 which can be used pretty much in all small engines, lawn mowers, pressure washers and snow blowers!

0w-20 for most of the 2012+ Honda civics too

Is this good as name brands 0w20? I know it has all the spec approvals and all. I don't mind rebates so I may just wait for Penzoil or Mobil.

Thanks for this. Both of my cars are on 10k intervals and I just had them both done not too long ago, at which point I finished up my last ~$10 jug of Pennzoil Ultra Platinum. I like to keep them in stock, but since I've got some time before the next change, I think I'll wait for the good stuff.
M1's rebate period just ended Sept 30. Shame you didn't get in on Autozone's 5w-30 for $8 AR. But hopefully they will announce a new rebate period soon.

PP rebates stink. They never seem to accept WM's 0w-20 product description on the receipt so I have to follow up.

What's the normal price? I thought the $15 is the normal price.
I wouldn't hesitate to use this oil over the other more famous brand names.

Can't find on the website, but assume it's API certified?
