wondering if anyone buys engine oil online. I usually use Kohler Command 10W-30 Oil. looking for the best price for it online in bulk. I use jthomas for everything else, but they dont sell the kohler 4 cycle. Let me know if you know any sites that sell it. Thanks

Wouldn't shipping defeat the purpose?

Nothing special about Kohler oil. And unless you're buying it in bulk, Walmart is likely your best bet.

If you buy in bulk a local oil distributor is your best bet.

I use Pennzoil 10w30 in all of my 4 stroke engines except for the wife's Cobalt.

Walmart usually has it for around $14 for 5 quart jugs.

Kohler doesn't make oil and there are plenty of oils available that will work as well or better in many cases. There are plenty of guys on here getting 2,500+ hours out of Kohlers with out Kohler oil.

i buy it by the barrel and it isnt too much cheaper, if i bought more barrels it would be but i dont use enough. walmart has the best prices on oil. mostly if they are sj rated it is good enough for anything

Something like this would translate into say $7 and change http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ROYAL-PURPLE-SYNTHETIC-15W40-DIESEL-MOTOR-OIL-12-Qt-Cs_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trkparmsZ65Q3a12Q7c66Q3a2Q7c39Q3a1Q7c72Q3a1205Q7c240Q3a1318Q7c301Q3a1Q7c293Q3a 1Q7c294Q3a50QQ_trksidZp3286Q2ec0Q2em14QQhashZitem53db36992dQQitemZ360160074029QQptZBoatQ5fPartsQ5fAc cessoriesQ5fGear
