Anyone find 0W-40 ESP in a 5 qt jug in a box store yet? I'm due for a change soon and all I can find is litre bottles here.

Sorry to resurrect this post. I ran across a document today that indicates that Mobil 1 ESP 0W40 is not suitable for Camaro 1LEs.
https://www.corvetteactioncenter.com...rint-1389.html

Does anyone from Chevrolet have input to this? Thanks!

----- edit ---------
Jsut realized that the "not recommended" applies to the ZL1, not the normal LT1 1LE, so I'll continue to use that oil.

The info is readily available. They switched to the esp 0 w 40 for less oil burn and prolonged cat life. No need to speculate

Same outdated list.
Shows several Castrol 5w40 that don't/no longer exist.
Still shows discontinued Valvoline MST 5w40.

I tried searching that list a while ago and only came up with a few still in production.

I was running the Valvoline 5w40 when it was discontinued and had to search for a new oil, I found that list and began my hunt.
The only choices I've been able to find on the market were Havoline 5w40, Motul 8100 5w40, and Amalie 5w40. There may be others, but these were the only ones affordable and easily ordered/purchased.

I ordered some Amalie on sale at a good price, see how that runs. I think Napa had the Havoline on sale recently too, found out after I ordered the Amalie.
