Getting ready to switch my Kodiak to synthetic. Undecided yet which brand though I have narrowed it down to a couple. What are you using? Thanks
The front and rear take different fluids. The rear has to be compatible with wet brake systems. Calls for mobilfluid 424 so would have to be a compatible replacement.On my first oil change I'll be using Valvoline full synthetic 5w20 or 5w30. I'll use Valvoline full synthetic gear oil also when I do the front and rear ends.
It's called marketing. A lot of people will not purchase a pack of 3 1 gallon jugs unless they really need it but instead just purchase a 1 gallon jug. They will also not look at the price difference until they look at their receipt at home.As of 5/11/21 Amazon has gallons of Shell Rotella T6 5W40 for $22 with a $7.00 Rebate - max of $35. Net cost is $15 a gallon.
Go figure though - 1 Gallon is $22, but a pack of 3 1 Gallon jugs is $84.... I think someone's math was off.
What differet api ratings did you see?It's called marketing. A lot of people will not purchase a pack of 3 1 gallon jugs unless they really need it but instead just purchase a 1 gallon jug. They will also not look at the price difference until they look at their receipt at home.
I just looked at the two that are on Amazon, they carry different specifications on the API ratings for different engines.
It is the old proverb, buyer be ware......
I just compared a few of the ratings that different engine manufacturers require and there difference on them.What differet api ratings did you see?
Funny you say most won't buy 3 jugs..... And here i an buying it by the 5 gal pail on sale plus mail in rebate. Lol
Same with my filters, bought 8 filter, saved over $3 per filter.
When you look at it, it only makes sense, gonna be buying it again anyways, so buy bulk and save.

Yup exactly. They see the price on the shelf, but don't look at price per liter/quart.I just compared a few of the ratings that different engine manufacturers require and there difference on them.
I know that when I buy oil for my truck it is 4 gallons at a time with a 14 quart oil pan. The manufacturers used to package it 4 gallons per case, now it's 3 gallon per case. A month or so ago there was a sale on the oil that I use but I found that if I bought it in the 2 1/2 gallon jug and bought 2 of them that it was cheaper than 5 1 gallon jugs that were on sale.
People just need to do some math if they plan on saving any money
