PORTER, Texas Royal Purple, a manufacturer of high-performance synthetic lubricants, will begin offering its popular five-quart bottles of fully synthetic SAE motor oil exclusively through O’Reilly Auto Parts stores.
O’Reilly Auto Parts will begin to transition from the one-gallon containers of Royal Purple it previously carried, to the new five-quart containers, immediately. By March, each of O’Reilly’s 3,613 stores will stock 5W-20, 5W-30 and 10W-30 viscosities, with 0W-20 oil available as a special order from O’Reilly’s warehouse.
The five-quart bottles provide a cost, convenience and environmental benefit for consumers interested in changing their own oil, according to the company. Modern cars and trucks require anywhere from 4 to 12 quarts of oil. Instead of purchasing and storing multiple single-quart containers, consumers can now leave their local O’Reilly store with the easy-to-carry packaging at a savings of about 4 percent per quart.
