Valvoline Extreme Blue

Where are you guys finding Valvoline Extreme Blue Synthetic at? I've been to every parts house around here, and the closest thing I can find is just the Premium Blue, non synthetic. Napa, Advance, Oreilly's, Autozone.... none of them carry it. I'd really like to run this on my next oil change, which is coming up pretty soon. Surely I won't have to special order this stuff??

Re: Valvoline Extreme Blue

Well I went ahead and got the premium blue because I'm doing the oil change tomorrow, and didn't want to wait on it to be ordered. Just was wondering where I could get it for next time around.

Regular premium blue is pretty good. The synthetic really shines in the winter in a PSD. Any 5w40 will go a long way. Ford recommends a 10w30 below 20* or so, personally I would rather the wider range of coverage with a 5w40 JMHO.

Re: Valvoline Extreme Blue

Well I don't have to worry about really cold temps around here. It's almost summer now, which means 95-100 every day. I've always ran synthetic in other vehicles. Just love the durability of it.

Re: Valvoline Extreme Blue

I know you said you got some oil already but next time check around the auto stores that are near rv parks...They usually stock up on it because there are alot of diesels goin through there,

Re: Valvoline Extreme Blue

The guys iv talked to say the premium blue is pretty durable... Its not a synthetic but its very good. Also, i didnt need the 5w40 either as out here in Sacramento, CA im not getting down into the 20* and less tempatures. Later when i can start affording it i will start running the extreme blue, but as of now i will be just fine with the premium

Re: Valvoline Extreme Blue

I can get it at O'Reilly's but you have to talk to the manager. They have to order it and the manager here had to actually do the leg work for the counter guys. They can only get it by the case which I think is 4 gallons and it's about 19 to 20 dollars a gallon thru O'Reilly's. They can get it, you just need to help them along with tracking it down. Tell them you know a guy in Burlington, N.C. who gets it from his local O'Reilly's.

Re: Valvoline Extreme Blue

I'll have to give that a try next time. There are 2 Oreilly's within 5 miles of my house.

I had heard a few good things about the premium blue as well. That's why I decided to go ahead and get it.

What about Mobil 1 full syn? Never hear too many diesel guys mention it much. That's the only oil I ever ran in the gassers I had.
