Castrol 2T Oil? Would you use it?

Was at Pep Boys buying some ATF4 for my Jeep (thanks flyin' duc for your reassurance) and on the table next to the register were quarts of 2T motor oil....says it's good for lawn equipment, motorcyles, etc. With it being on the discount table it caught my eye. Dude rang it up....90 cents a quart....so I bought 3 of 'em....kinda thinking I should have purchased the whole lot. Or am ignorant and should have passed on the $3 I spent? I usually run Belray or Amsoil, but at 90 cents a qt....I couldn't pass it up.

I've run that before. No problems. I paid much more than $0.99 for it. I think I was paying closer to $4 retail.

this stuff have a shelf life? b/c at 90 cents a qt I could fill an entire shelf in my garage with this stuff and would probably last me years.

I'm sure it's fine. I'm assuming it's dino, not synthetic? The main issue could be gumming that might affect powervalves. But I would run it.

CORRECT....not synthetic. Gonna see if I can grab the last 5 bottles I saw sitting there during lunch....should give me a solid 3 yrs of mix for less than 8 bucks.
