Just came from Pep Boys and the guy looked at me as if I was crazy. Does Wally World carry any synthetics in this grade? If not, which of the retailers does? Thanks!

edited for my error.Marcutio said:Its a grade that really didn't go anywhere after its first launch. 5W (Five weight/Winter) is the required oil for 99% of most vehicles out there. People didn't feel 100% comfortable using a "Zero" weight oil. Alot of manufactures don't recomend it so thats probably why it is not widely available.
A synthetic (regular not blend) has the ability to become more fluid, quicker than all conventional oils out there. 5w-20-5w50 should do the trick with most applications. The term "blend" is a little misleading to consumers anyway since ALL synthetics start with a base oil to which synthetic additives are ....well.....added. Check out the section here on "Synthetic Oil", there is some good info there. As well, on-line you can check most companies info on their products. Informative...Check it out!
