Too bad you went with Castrol, otherwise you could of bought a 5 qt container of Mobil 1 for $20 at walmart.

$19.95 plus tax at Walmart.
Best price ive ever seen for Mobil 1 fully syn.

Ahh **** I always forget about Wal-Mart. I went to Pep-Boys and they had Mobile 1 but it was 10w instead of 5w...thats the only reason I went Castrol.

I use 10w30 anyway. I was eatin up the 5w stuff in my 109000 mile car. I just get it in cases of 6 at meijer for 28 bucks.

I prefer 10w 30 or 40. 1/2 quarts would be nice though. The car is 4.5 quarts and my F150 is 5.5 quarts. What a Pain in the a$$
