Havoline seems to be what most no name oil are from. They also make the oil from advance.

I was told by several different Safety-Kleen employees that the oil recycled through them was sold to Wal-Mart for their (Wal-Mart's) brand of oil.

Look for the ASE certification star on the bottle. This ASE set's the standard for oil quality. If it has the symbol, you can bet it's at least passed the standard.

have been using the wal mart oil for a number of years. an aerostar had 206k when I sold it and its going strong still. Have completed aprox a dozen engs with it and no complaints. On doing some research penzoil makes it. I use 20W-50 in every thing. over 500 engs and never lost a bearing. thats why they make different things, something for every one.
