Where do you live? I haven't seen Euro L (dexos2) at Wally World for that price since they first introduced it over a year ago and then within 3 months the price jump up to $25.68. On the internet and the local Wally Worlds around me all are selling at $25.68 per 5 qt jug and there are only a few that still even carry it on the shelves. Autozone also quite over a year ago and they couldn't understand why it wasn't selling at $37.98 a jug.

Let me know where one can still find Euro L for $22/jug and Ill buy cases of it, this is better then investing in the stock market, over 10% increase in less then a year!!

That's so weird...local Wally World in Parker, AZ (pop. 3,500) has it in stock all the time. Local Auto Zone, Napa and Parker Auto don't carry ANY Dexos 2.

Wonder if it's a regional thing?

EDIT: Just realized the question is price...I know my local Walmart has been $25.68 for the last few months. Haven't had a chance to see if it went on sale today.

I live in a suburb of Indy. I had to have a brief conversation with the Walmart auto service manager and asked him to stock and he did and it took a couple weeks for it to come in. So now I have oil I can use in my diesel five miles from my home.

Walmart just runs promotions, I had been paying 25.68 and now it is 22.97. I plan to stock up.

Looks like our Walmart carries Euro L in the 5.1 qt jugs too, but given that I believe GM Dexos2 is now fully synthetic, I'm not sure it's worth my time given that I can pay the dealer $10 more and not have to deal with another vehicle to change the oil on.

That works well as long as they do quality work. I've had a dealership forget to reinstall the oil fill cap, and on the Cruze when still under complemtary service, the last oil change they did they didn't replace the drain plug gasket, and the plug was basically hand tight and leaking.. discovered this when I did my first oil change. Good service is hard to come by in my experience. Doing it myself for me is more about making sure it's done correctly.

They do, have always been happy with them. And I'm definitely one to do nearly everything myself, including oil changes - but if they can do it for not much more, that means I can have my wife take it in and it's one less vehicle to change oil on.

All of the Walmarts in my area have the Pennzoil dexos2 for the $22 price. It was recently $25.

I still have a 5L jug of Total Quartz INEO Long Life to use up first but I plan on switching to the Pennzoil.

GM dealers in my area only had the ACDelco dexos2 in bulk, but recently one started carrying the Mobil Super 3000 XE. Jegs also carries it. I was planning on switching to buying the 3 - 5qt pack of Castrol Edge dexos2 on Amazon which was the best price I saw prior to the Walmart find.

After months of being out of stock at my local Wally World, I just picked up 3 jugs of the Pennzoil Euro L (Dexos2) over this past weekend at the sale price of $22.97/jug. As I previously mentioned this is a better investment then the stock market :th_dblthumb2: (buy low)!

Now I need to find some T6 on sale to restock for my 6.0L PS. Just used up my last 4 gal stock when replacing the rotted out OEM oil pan! I sprayed the new pan with undercoating hoping it will last a little longer this time? :hope: Just love Ford and the acidic salt the road crews use on the roads during winters here in Northern IL.

Remember, you can always buy it on their website and ship it to your nearest store for no additional charge.

Just be careful because the pictures do not match the description on their oil. They had the 0w40 picture on the 5w30 and the 5w30 picture on the 0w40 for the longest time. They finally have the right picture on the 5w30, but the 0w40 still shows 5w30 and the description says "dexos2", which it is not.

My local store often sells for more than web site price, but if you bring it to their attention they will price match their own web site. (more hassle than just taking it to checkout, but not a big deal).
Or buy online with same day pickup in store, but their web site is so often hacked I hate to give it my credit card info.

According to Pennzoil Product page there is no DEXOS2 0W-40 Platinum Euro L. Also not an approved viscosity for the engine.
