It is not made by Warren and it is not made by Shell. Contrary to what everyone else writes, this and all other Supertech oils I've checked are made by Citgo. Check out the Material Safety Data Sheets at msds.walmartstores.com for the product you are looking for and you will see that Citgo is the supplier.

Super Tech is made by Warren Distribution, which makes other house brand oils for Napa, Auto zone, Orielly's/ Checker, Advance. The main difference is the amount of detergents. Pennzoil and Moible add more cleaning detergents to their oil, which helps stop oil sludge and foaming but also adds to price.

The difference between (ANY) name brand and Walmart's SuperTech brand is the cost to procure the product. Brand name products include marketing (advertising) cost to promote the product. With motor oil, besides paying thou$and$ to advertise during major NFL, NBA, and other guy-sports games on the weekends, they also sponsor race cars. They pay a premium price to have their logo clearly visible on each race car and pay another premium price if the race car places 1st, 2nd, or 3rd on the finish line. The additional costs to promote their products is added to the wholesale cost. Bargain brands (like SuperTech) has no marketing promo costs because they rely on word-of-mouth commendation; friends and family members will recommend them. As Semaj99 (from Zion, IL) advices, disregard the name brand and pay close attention to the SAE engine protection rating on the label.

I'm not an expert but both of these brands are approved by the Society of Automotive Engineers(SAE). Although Super Tech is not a well known Brand name as Pennzoil, according to the SAE it provides the protection needed for automotive engines, hence, SAE 5W30 as stated on the bottle. The best thing to do is to compare bottles to check that the non Brand name meets the same standards and is approved by the same organizations as the Brand name. I hope this helaps.

Super Tech is made by Warren Distribution they also make other house brand oils: Napa, Advance Auto, and AutoZone. Changing depends on type of driving. City driving change 5-6k miles, highway 6-8k. If have high performance engine such as a turbo check every 2k for foaming or sludge, and change if present.

Portable Gasoline Generators and a Synthetic Oil 5W-30?

I would like to know if ST Full Synthetic oil 5W-30, can be use with my portable gasoline generator and for how long of period between oil changes?
The generator manufacturer recommends a 10W-30, but i think the ST Full Synthetic is a far more superior product to their conventional oil.
Thank you for your answer.

Yes, I would use it and never look back. I have been using Synthetic Motor Oil in my Snowblower since 1994 along with my John Deere Tractor and Toro Lawn Mower.

answer 2
Synthetic typically go longer, this oil is inexpensive and the additive package is not intended to last forever. The TBN is comparable to regular oil, that determines the service life unless you are running LPG or natural gas. A better quality synthetic will give you a longer service life.

Valvoline has a good warranty attached to their full synthetic, that alone tells you it is a good product.

I just ran my riding lawnmower two years on the same oil with a top brand synthetic and the oil is not even black (can't publish the brand here, but it is sold through independent dealers).

Does this oil meet 2011 GM Dexos warranty specs?

For 2011 General Motors vehicle warranties, they require use of oil that meets Dexos specification. The description states that this oil meets all new car warranty requirements. However, I did not see the Dexos specification listed in the product description.

Dexos is a brand name oil made by GM, its not a classification of oil. most all oil meets or exceeds Dexos specs. The only thing to look out for is if vehicle has a turbo or high performance engine that might build up sludge or foam. If it does a synthetic or oil with detergents is needed. Either way supertech synthetic meets both these requirements and exceeds Dexos specs.

I went to www.gmdexos.com and they failed to mention SAE oil rating (Society of Automotive Engineers). The wording on the website is trying to convince people who never took automotive classes that you should take your car to a dealership for your oil change. Full synthetic oil was developed and used in high-performance race cars. This is a very hostile engine environment where you're driving at speeds over 100 MPH for hours at a time. Oil companies decided to offer full synthetic to the public when too many race enthusiast kept inquiring on what engine oil was used in race cars. I'm not an automotive engineer, but I'm 100% positive that this oil meets or exceeds the GM Dexos oil lubricant standards.

Depending on your location, it could be Warren Performance Products, a blender for many house brand oils, or Mobil. Also I think Shell may produce it it some areas.

Regardless of who blends it, it is a quality oil that meets API SN and GF-5 specifcations.

Don't look like it because the oil jug don't have the Dexos symbol on it. However I think it would probably still meet the Dexos standards.
Walmart may not want to spend the extra money to get it Dexos certified, if they did, the price for Supertech synthetic oil would cost a whole lot more. Cost saving passed on the the customer.
