Price of 4 stroke oil

Recommended Posts

I read alot of posts about owners refusing to pay $10+ for a quart of atv oil. Going to Wallys,Autozone, Pepboys, I cant find atv oil less than 10 bux. Am i looking at the wrong oil? Im talking about oil specifically made for wet clutches. I just bought mobil1 10-40 4t synthetic (didnt have semi) and itvwas 13 a quart. lucas oil semi synthetic 20-50 was $10 a quart. Honda lube is 17 a quart and 22 a quart

Doesnt even have to be any synthetic. I mean any atv oil. Is at or over 10 bux around me. But the pickins are slim maybe a few quarts from a couple of companies.

I buy the Retella T 15W-40 for 13 bucks a gallon around here.. And Honda GN4 goes for 6 bucks a quart, kawasaki oil is 5 a quart.. I guess oil is just expensive around there?

Does anyone know if they sell atv oil in the 5 gallon pails. My oil distributor doesnt sell any 4 stroke oil. He can get super expensive aerospace oil but cant get

thumper oil. What gives!

Buying oil online would be worth it if i could get it in a pail not quarts

the price of any kind of oil is around 10 bucks a quart if you want to get a popular brand. I was just looking at prices to change the oil in my truck and its the same with that.

When i head out to RAC again ill go to tractor supply or walmart there. Island prices are getting too much.

What i was saying is it seems as though people keep posting on other forums that anything over 10 a quart is outragious. The posts are recent so its not old prices. A dollar or so up or down is not great savings

You guys are saying thats its not that much less. Maybe its all old timers remembering that gas used to cost 50¢ a gallon or young kids with no concept of money.

Update: Found Castrol 10w-40 4 stroke ATV oil (Non synthetic) for 4.49 a quart. It was tucked away behind all the synthetics all dusty. I bought the last case. I could care less if its not synthetic.

Also different note anyone see the new Valvoline NextGen recycled oil for cars? It was a huge display with all the pros and benefits of using recycled oil. ITS TWICE THE PRICE OF REGULAR VALVOLINE!!! Literally double the price. Didnt they try this about 30 years ago and recycled oil was super cheap compared to regular oil? I remember my father used to get drums of the recycled stuff and never had a problem with his customers trucks.

      Does a US made grease gun fit Metric zerk fittings, or do I need a conversion to fit them?  Thanks in advance.

      I made my intro about a QuadRunner I was working on and found a multitude of problems. Most I fixed, but I'm thinking that I'll be making more trips to see the 90' LT-250/4WD. Age and needing regular attention is the reason. The owner, NOT being mechanically inclined, adds into the equation.
      So, I deliver it and was offered, as payment, a 95' LT-250/4WD, with paper. It didn't run and had been sitting outside for last 12+ months. It was (basically) all there. This happened Saturday and this "Barn Find" came home to live out it's final years (I suspect).

       
      Today I finally found time to look at her. Not a pretty sight. Rough life, many hrs....... MANY! Only 2399mi, but the speedo is disco'd. I just want to know if this will be worth pursuing. First things first, a really good cleaning. I hate working on dirty vehicles.

      The battery actually took and held a charge! The carb was pulled, cleaned and the tank drained. Found a broken orange wire, dangling loose, near the carb. It was hot when the key was on and ended up connecting to a 10A fuse block. Well, I wonder why it didn't run???? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm! 
      Carb back on, fresh non-eth fuel, had to remove the air filter for this test (needs replacement), sprayed a little ether..... hit the starter, fired and died. Third time's a charm, she runs. I'll be going thru things as I can and questions will follow, in this thread.
       
      WOOHOO!!!

      I had the local garage change the oil and filter in my machine and ever since they changed it there has been an oil leak. Taken it back several times and they can't figure out the problem.

      Hey people
      Question for all, just picked a 1986 bayou 300 thinking of going synthetic any thoughts ?

      Common misconception is that you need to return to the dealer for an exact
      oil filter for your ATV.  Aftermarket companies actually make filters for
      the O.E.M. market. Why go to the dealer when you can get the exact filter you
      need at your local auto parts store such as CARQUEST or NAPA. Wix corporation
      makes ATV filters that you'll find in most of your popular autopart stores. 
      In most cases, you'll pay allot less! 
      WIX is a leader in the filter business.  Check out this
      ATV FILTER CATALOG.  Remember, you can
      right down the filter # and have it cross-referenced at your local autopart
      store if they don't carry WIX, CARQUEST, or NAPA.
      You can also click on the part # for the filter image.
