Can't seem to find synthetic 5w-20.

I've searched all the big name websites. Quaker State, 76, Mobil1, and Shell. They all list 5w-20 under conventional oils, but no full syn. Now some of you had indicated that you are using syn oil, is it 5w-20 or 5w-30?

Yeah, Walmart carries a synthetic-blend for $1.77 a quart. Not a bad deal if I don't say so myself. Wait a moment, I didn't say so myself.

I believe all 5w20's are blends by nature. I emailed Mobil some months back and they said they had no plans of making Mobil 1 in 5w20 anytime soon. I posted in here if anyone is bored and would like to dig up the email from them.
