I'm a sucker for spreadsheets. Its so convenient to lay out the data, compare, and make an informed decision. Okay. I probably get carried away with it. Did I really need to make one to compare oil prices? Um no. But I didn't anyway.
This comparison includes motor oil, gear oil, and transmission fluid prices I compiled from Amazon, Autozone, Meijer, Menards, Tractor Supply, and Walmart. These prices are generally for the West Central Indiana market so they may vary.
As I have time, I will add other local retailers (Advance Auto, Napa, and O'Reilly). This is mostly centered around my fleet of Fords. In our household, we're driving a 1998 F-150 XLT 4.6L 4x4, 2004 Expedition XLT 4.6L 4x4, and a 2010 Expedition EL Eddie Bauer 5.4L 4x4. I never meant to be a Ford fanboy but its pretty convenient keeping all the same fluids and filters around.
Some oils are marked specifically as 5w-20 (that's what Ford recommends afterall). The 5w-30 prices are probably the same. These prices are current to July 2020.
If you're not yet on Honey, join today. Honey allows you save items to a droplist that watches for price drops. It takes the work out of being frugal. Find your favorite oil on Amazon (or elsewhere) and let Honey tell you when the price goes lower. The Honey extension will even tell you if the item is the best deal available.
