This forum and several other sources have praised Chevron Supreme oil performance. I want to run 5w-30 and have not been able to locate any at the big auto parts retailers (Auto Zone, Pep Boys, O'Reilly's etc.), Walmart, Sams, and others. I've searched the net and could not find any. I went to a large Chevron station and they only had 5 quarts. When I asked them if they had any more in the back they said no. Has anyone on this planet (or any other planet for that matter) been able to find Chevron Supreme 5w-30? Sometimes I think it would be easier to find the Loch Ness monster.

10W-30 should be fine unless you live in an extremely cold climate. Check your local Costco, BJ's and Sam's, I remember one of those carrying lots of Chevron oil.

Just to add a little more info, according to Chevrons site the 5W-30 has a pour point of -33F, the 10W-30 is -31F. So there shouldn't be much difference if any even in cold climates.

There are no Costco or BJ's in north Louisiana. We have Sam's but they sell only Castrol, Pennzoil, and Havoline.

Thanks Trapper L and others for the info. It's nice to know that every once in a while I solve my own problems. Most often I am the cause of the problems I have.

I found it at COSTCO in MD for $23.33 per 6 quart box.

I thought in another post people were saying not to use Synthetics in the Titans, which Chevron 5w-30 is? Am i mistaken?

For the price it better be synthetic which is exactly what you don't want. Chevron Supreme or Havoline should be around the $1.25 qt range. It can be had at the local Wally World here for $1.17 qt. You might also try looking in the yellow pages for the nearest Chevron distributor, they will usually sell to anybody.
