Petroleum Quality Institute of America (PQIA) issued a warning about six motor oils that are distributed at various convenience stores throughout the country.

If you use any of the following motor oils, you should consider an oil change immediately: Bullseye 5W-30 Motor Oil API SC/CC, City Star 5W30 Motor Oil API SA, Everclear 5W-30 Motor Oil API SC/CC, ProForce All Season SAE 5W-30 Motor Oil API SF/CC, Star Petroleum High Mileage Formula 10W-30 API SB or Super XXX SAE 5W30 Motor Oil API SB. According to PQIA, all of these oils failed to meet standards for viscosity and elemental additives and could damage your engine. You can view the results of these tests at pqiamerica.com.
