The trouble is that NAPA only has 5W-50 and Walmart only has 10W-40.

Your Napa must be out. Mine had some last week.
Wally world sells out of syntec 20w-50 all the time. I guess there are many classic cars out there besides our LBCs.

I just got the last six quarts at a local NAPA on sale at $4.99 each. I won't need them for a while, until break in is done with Rotella Triple T.

You guys are so lucky. Not only do you get a better range of Castrol oils, but you have quick lube centers too! Our Castrol GTX changed to 10W/40 about 10 years ago. They now produce Castrol Classic 20W/50 at about $40 a gallon.

Nothing like the power of marketing/suggestion. That's why placebo's work so well. But, I am glad Castrol has finally gotten the sludge problem "fixed".

But don't you guys get it in those neat tins? I checked on ordering some until I saw the cost.

I snagged three cases from my local NAPA. Actually they only had two cases on the shelf and one at the warehouse. Still need to pick up the third. Why so many you may ask? one of my Jaguars takes 9 and the other 12 for each change.

... I think the Castrol BLEND was that price per qt. Not the same as full syntec but the containers do look similar.
Better look at the label again before using it in your LBC.

...I just pick up a case of castrol 20/50 an hour ago. Is this the oil you mean? Are there two different types of Castrol 20/50?

Metal gallon tins for the Castrol Classic, but I would rather do without the packaging and not have to pay so much!
