My car requires four quarts…

of oil but the synthetic bulk oil I purchase (my favorite brand is whatever is cheapest but not generic) comes in five quart containers. So what to do with the extra oil? Why save it, of course, and pour each additional quart from an oil change into a five quart container until you have a full jug of synthetic multipurpose, multi-weight and multi-brand oil.  With all the claims the oil companies make an oil change with four or more major brands should be the perfect oil. The rest is saved for the snow blower and lawn mover.

Captain thrifty strikes again!
