In this video, I tested Valvoline 10W-30 Conventional Motor Oil, AmazonBasics Full Synthetic Motor OIl, and Mobil 1 Full Synthetic Motor oil for cold temperature flow, lubricity, evaporative loss after exposure to approximately 400F for 2 hours, and cold flow of each oil after exposed to heat for 2 hours. Sleuthing (and the bottle shape) reveals the true maker as Warren, a respectable budget supplier. So you can trust Amazon motor oil so long as it comes in Warren bottles. This motorcycle cover lasts years in a marine environment. This Dowco Guardian motorcycle cover keeps my classic bike looking nearly restored.
Loving both the ocean and shiny things can be hard. A lot of work goes into keeping corrosion at bay on my old airhead. Fog and wind bring minute amounts of salt that […] READ THE REST. A few years back, my older brother Rick Pescovitz invented the “Under the Weather Pod,” a single-person pop-up shelter to sit inside. It’s designed for spectator sports, fishing, and other outdoor events where it’s raining but you are either obligated to watch or having so much fun you don’t want to leave. Steve McQueen, the King of Cool, famously wore a Tag Heuer Monaco in his epic 1971 racing film Le Mans. There are lots of debates about McQueen fashion items. The King of Cool is also frequently pictured wearing a Rolex Submariner.
Retail and business analysts always regard Amazon's entry into a category as having a detrimental effect on established brands. When Non-Essential Stores Reopen, Will Shoppers Accept The Friction? Amazon Basics Synthetic Motor Oil is the retailers' private label oil and a competitor to Valvoline, . (Photo: Amazon) Although first available in July 2018, reviews of Amazon Basics Full Synthetic Motor Oil have just started to appear with most customers giving the product a positive review. Retail analysts tell me that they find it fascinating how Amazon will release one of its private label products with no fanfare or announcement. The fact that Amazon has a released a private label product in a category most analysts and consumers believed Amazon wouldn't compete, will become a big story. Full disclosure: I used the Amazon Basics brand for my latest oil change and so far I have seen no difference in performance, horse power or mileage when compared with the more expensive motor oils I regularly use. Like many car owners, I prefer to keep a vehicle for a long period of time. My current SUV has over 100,000 miles on the engine.
Private label is becoming extremely strategic to Amazon. As of July 2018, Amazon has a total of 76 private label brands but I estimate Amazon will have over 2,000 private-label brands within 3 to 5 years. Note: I have spoken publicly and written in many articles that I believe Amazon will become one of the largest Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies in the world due to its private-label strategy. Add in the fact Amazon owns nearly 500 Whole Foods stores with more to be built in the coming years, and what's clear is that Amazon has tremendous potential for influencing consumers to buy its private-label products.
