More info: the rebate is limited to (5) 1-gallon jugs (for a total of $60 back); or (2) 5-gallon pails ($120 back).
"Limit of two (2) $60 Rebates per household."

It was $24.49/gallon at Mills Fleet Farm the last time I was there, a couple months ago. Actually a dollar or two cheaper than M1 TDT. Meijer's has it too, but neither FF nor Meijer's mentions it on their web sites.

Got delivery on 5 more gallons of Devac1 5w-40. I guess an optimist is someone with enough oil to last another 130k miles for a car with 350k miles.
350k miles for an ALH engine is just nicely broken in.

Just picked up 4 gal at Advance Auto back Friday evening at $29.99/gal. Not quite as good as what Rich found, but after rebate not too shabby...

All Mobil 1 oil, including the ESP 0W-30 but not the ESP 5W-30, are on sale at NAPA for $5.99/L. I just sent an email to NAPA's customer service and see why the ESP 5W-30 would be excluded from the sale.

Probably because of its super high MSRP.

Napa has Valvoline MST 5w-40 for $5.50 per liter.

They also have Valvoline Synpower XL-III 5W30 $133 for 19L. That’s $33 per oil change if you need 507.

Depends on your TDI.

The early ones were 505, the PDs were 505.01, and then along came 507.
I would only recommend 507.00 for the CR engines, and a robust CJ-4 or CK-4 5w40 for all older TDIs, VE or PD.

The best deal I'm currently finding is Rotella T6 5w-40 from WalMart. 2.5gal for $56. That's $5.60 qt.
Anyone know a better deal now?

Amazon is running a few sweet deals on a 3 pack of 1 gal Rotella T6 5w-40 in the past 30 days. You have to watch it or set a price alert but you can catch it very heavily discounted.
As of this posting its the "normal" price of about $80-$84, but in the past 30 days has bounced down to $54.88 on occasion. By my math 12 quarts for $54.88 is $4.57/quart.

Hope anyone looking gets in on the deal. Everywhere local to me has it marked higher.
