Stopped in the local AutoZone (Hampton VA) today and saw that they had Valvoline VR1 20w50 racing oil (the one w/ ZDDP) on sale for $1.00 per quart. Salesman said they were closing it out--he thought the sale was company-wide.

I haven't seen it that cheap since I bought the 914 in the way-back days (back when oil came in cardboard cans).

Hope this helps!

Web search on autozone.com does not return any hits so it maybe true. I'm going to check my local store tomorrow and stock up if this is true nationwide. Thanks for the heads up Bro (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Big deal on pelican. When you're filling 10+ quarts, it makes a difference.

This is for real! I had to stop at two stores but I picked up 12 quarts of 20w-50 this morning for $1 each.

Thanks for the heads up!!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif)

Thanks. Just picked up 6 quarts. Not even marked as a sale. Almost looks like $1 is the regular price.

Your stores must be late to the party. Checked mine and they said started clearancing it out last December. Not even space on the shelves for it.

Hit a couple stores here in middle Tennessee, each had it for $1 marked as regular price (to the surprise of one of the managers!). He looked in the system and said he didn't see anything about it being clearanced out, and said he would go ahead and put an order for another 12 and call me when they come in.

It was kind of funny when I got mine this morning. The manager walked by as I was at the checkout and commented "We don't sell oil for $1" Then he double checked everything in the system, and let me have it! I'm not sure if they are getting rid of it, or maybe they have in incorrect price on the SKU in their system.

I went to pick up some VR1 earlier today but my local autozone was all sold out.
The manager told me that they will no longer be selling and no longer stocking it.
He made it sound like it's company wide too. I guess that's why it's so cheap.

Advance had a similar deal several months ago....I bought all they had. There may be some leftover at a few stores.

Thanks for posting this Steve!

I raided three stores this morning and scored 20 quarts. I'll be in the city early next week and hope to buy some more.

Sweet deal. I love this forum! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)
