Walmat gets there prices and stuff from bossing around the manufacturer for the lowest price. So it would be a really really cheaply made synthetic.

yeah, it seems ridiculously cheap, but do they really batch a different lot for walm? Seems like to run a new batch/prodo line would be more cost prohibitive than simply putting in the sh it they already have in a differently labeled container and keeping that fact on the DL.

I would have to say it would pretty much depend on who they get it from. Run it once, and send it in for a test. The company can and could just only produce for walmat, you also have to understand that you don't know who, or where the oil is produced from. China, mexico, US, russia. Get it cheaper, sell it cheap. IT could also be a good oil from a large producer, and just rebranded. But it won't necessarily be cheaper for the company to just sell there original formula product if it cost to much to produce. It could be Just enough to pass.
