It seems very popular for new cars, so I'm sure we'll see it getting more shelf space soon. 20 years ago it wasn't always easy to find 5w30 and the shelves were full of 10w40.

It might be a few years before the most modern cars are out of warranty and in the hands of DIYers.

Who goes to the store these days? Amazon Prime is free 2day delivery to your front door. LOL

Also look at your owners manual it will give you the oil weights vs outside temps which you can run. 0-20 weight is only one of I think two or three weights you might have as an option pending your outside temps right now. Costco tends to have plenty of that weight on hand also.

Subiesailor - how right you are! I hear Target is breathing on Amazon's neck and they claim that if you bring a copy of the Amazon order (printout) to their store they will match the price! Not sure how they will go about "matching" no tax sales...LOL

Well California won and Amazon now charges sales tax for orders here.


I dont find 0w-20 weight at the 2 costcos near me, and one Walmart I spoke to on the phone DID say that as soon as it hits their shelves its gone cause a lot of the new cars take it.

I can say this - of the 3 or 4 car parts chains around here - Pep Boys
clearly has the better selection of MANY products, not just oil.

Check your owners manual I recall 10-30 might also be an option. Don't have the chart near me but I do recall there being other options other than just 0-20

the manual for my '12 impreza says that oil can be used for topping off, the fb20 burns a lot of oil. unless the fb25 is different but i doubt it.

Have you ever tried NAPA? I found their prices and selection the best of all the "chains" and mass-retailers....

I bought snow chains for my son's 05 Forester at Napa store in Mammoth. By far the best place to buy anything automotive in that neck of the woods up there! Likewise, I buy all my aftermarket stuff at Napa (I have a wholesale account with them) here, where I live. If they don't have it "in stock" you can order it on Napa's internet online store and pick the stuff up at your closest Napa location to your house. Napa beats PepBoys, O'Reilly and Track Auto price wise and selection wise, in my humble opinion. One caution though - do your shopping online first, make a print-out and bring it to the store. Napa stores are not set up same way as other retailers - you can't see most of the stuff on display there - you have to do the shopping online!
