I just bought some full synthetic Walmart 5w-30 motor oil for just over $15 per 5-quart jug. I read some reviews on this brand of oil before I bought it, but I wanted to get some opinions here. Is this oil any good? Does anyone know who makes it? Are there any actually decent review on it...meaning, is there anyone who has done any testing on the viscosity of the oil after it's been used in an engine? I think it's okay because it meets all of the standards that my sister's 2020 Honda Civic calls for, but I wouldn't mind some real world examples.

There is an endless amount of forum posts and YouTube videos about this oil. Most everyone who reads and watches them come in with the question: Is this stuff too good to be true? At just over $3 per quart, I'll tell you right now, it's not too good to be true. Walmart Super Tech full synthetic (and every other type of oil) is perfectly fine to use in any car that calls for synthetic oil. Just be sure to properly match the viscosity for your area. You wouldn't want it to be too thick or too thin. You should be fine with 5w-30 - that's what many cars call for today.

As for who makes it - back in 2014, Walmart oil was bottled by Citgo, but today, you'll find a "WPP" on the bottom of each bottle. That stands for Warren Performance Packaging. This company bottles motor oil for many different brands. Check out their products page:

Keyboard warrior the world over love to talk about whether this is good oil or not. The fact of the matter is, they have no idea. Virtually everyone on the internet is basing their information off of what someone else has said on some website. The fact of the matter is, Walmart Super Tech oil meets or exceeds all car manufacturer specifications. I'm pretty sure it's also the same exact oil found in many other brands' bottles. Let's be real here. A lot of engine oil is the same as a lot of other engine oil. I've read so many stories about performance and oil burning (usage) that offer little to no supporting evidence. If you're interested in reading further, this is a decent article:
