That oil is a semi-synthetic oil, not a full synthetic oil. It's a decent oil, but adding petroleum oil to a synthetic oil only serves to reduce the performance of the synthetic oil.

You wont generally find high-end products at Walmart.

Read this great article on all the fantastic advantages a true synthetic oil offers vs a dead dinosaur oil; Synthetic Oil:Rx For Long Engine Life - http://getahelmet.com/jeeps/tech/syntheticoil/
