Default FYI oil comparison

Coming from the motorcycle world I know the many claims of oil manufactures and the abuse a modern day sport bike put on oils.
I found this article and thought some might be interested in this oil comparision. Also being a long time mobile 1 user the results were reassuring on synthetic oil.
If this is in the wrong forum feel free to move as i did not know where to put it.

i've seen it for less here, think i've seen it for $2.95 recently. Hell, the 5 quart jug is only $17 and some change at walmart here, which comes out to be $3.40/quart. And yes, this is the full synthetic stuff i'm talking about here.

walmart prices seem to fluctuate. one day its $22, then it "rolls back" to $19, then the next week its back to $22. I've never seen it for $17 tho.
