NJ's Attorney General has issued a Stop Sale Order for a number of cut-rate motor oils that do not conform to the viscosity rating listed on their labels. For those who say that it doesn't matter which brand of oil you buy, I think that this proves that theory to be incorrect.

Good information, Retriever . . .

Call me crazy or whatever but I am also a firm believer in Brands of Gasoline making a significant difference and I always avoid those "off the wall" stations that rarely save any more than 5 to 10 cents a gallon.

Thanks for posting this information.

You realize that the brand has nothing to do with who refined the gasoline, right? Gas is commingled at the rack.

True, but the additives added after the refining are what makes the difference.

Me either.As to gasoline ;those off brand meet specs and often it just that the additive package is not added because it not required by law. They even trade shipments in pipelines.My local Wal mart Murphy buys from local chevron; mobil and varlero refineries terminals just no additves done when loading tanker.One even adds Shell additive to Shell tankers for local delivery.
