You may need to look around for conventional motor oils - brands like Pennzoil, Valvoline, Castrol, store brands, etc. are readily available. Buying a case on Amazon or at Walmart, is easy. The Pennzoil 5 Qt jugs are $17.47 at Home Depot ($3.50/Qt).

That was one reason i didn't go to WM they pretty much only have fram filters but have read good things about Mobile1 filters and i think they have those too.
What about the brand name game? Is WM brand just as good as Pennzoil Valvoline etc?

I have no way to know the specifics of store brands vs. name brands. The only way to determine the quality of any oil, and how well it performs in your specific engine is through used oil analysis:
The "Bob Is The Oil Guy" website has a lot of useful info.
