You got me curious enough to walk out to the shop.
Checked out the DG branded straight 30w I have on the shelf,
for my squirt can and occasionally I use it as a flushing oil mixed with ATF, MMO on tractors I get where I don't want to pull the pan. VERY short term. ya know, a pass around the field until it's warmed up good, then dump it.
over $2 a quart now, for years they sold it at $1.25.
yep, same deal
pre 1930 warning, says no additives, SA rated, no emblem.
Guess I'll make the longer trip to walmart from now on and stock up on their cheapest, for my throwaway oil jobs
As a flush it is fine - as an engine oil it is pitiful. If you want a mono-grade oil to run in your engines there are plenty of decent ones out there. Look for a good SAE 30 HD engine oil. Valvoline for one makes a line of premium conventional oils available in mono and multi grades. All of them are API service class SM/SL.Valvoline Premium Conventional Engine Oil PDS
