Default Super Tech oil

Has anyone used it? If so, what are your thoughts?

For some odd reason I was overcome with the urge to buy it tonight for my oil change. I've been a die-hard Castrol guy for my whole life, but tonight I switched to Super Tech. I've never heard anything bad, but that'* not to say it'* superior, or even decent. I figure at 160,000 miles, if the damage was gonna be done, it would have happened by now....so now maybe it'* time for me to save a little in the oil department.

You can't beat the Wally World Super Tech at $7 for 5 quarts, vs. Castrol at $11.

For Dino oil, it usually gets good marks under testing but it changes with each new supplier walmart gets to brand it for them.

Not to sound sarcastic...but you make it sound like it breaks at the 3,000 or 3 month barrier.

Do you have information or data about it that would add, please post it if you do.
