napa and valvoline

About the napa question and valvoline.Valvoline and Napa oils are not the same.Valvoline packages and blends oils to be branded for napa,just as they did for BP before they bought castrol.If it was valvoline than the installers of napa oil could offer the engine guarantee that valvoline offers for valvoline oil chahges,but they don't.As the one gentleman said test it and you will see.Why am writing this and how do i know,I sell valvoline for a living.

havn't a clue what post your reffering to but

it could be the same oil just without the guarantee.. I do know that both carquest and Napa at least sell oil that Valvoline blended. tho I'm more apt to belive it is the same.. but the 1 way to tell is the breakdown sheets, without comparing them it's all speculation.


I have a feeling your reffering to this 2005 thread

Is NAPA oil really Valvoline?

I live up in Eastern Canada and have been using NAPA oil on and off when on sale in my hondas, the NAPA store insisted that it was made by valvoline and therefore good. I have had my suspicions, this morning I went out to change my oil, was minus 15 C out, went to pour NAPA 5w20 and it was cloudy and so thick it would hardly go down the funnel, and yes this is 5w20. Had some shell 5w20 and tried it, poured like on a summer day and was clear, difference was day and night. Also tried some NAPA 5w20 synthetic, no better than the NAPA conventional. My guess is that NAPA is made by Valvoline but just doesn't have the additive package that name brand valvoline does. Was a real eye opener for me and I immediately drained the NAPA from my other car as well. No more cheap off label oil in my cars, not even my Focus

Cheers,

Greg
