Just look on the quart oil bottle and you will see a series of letters 
(usually).  These are the API codes given to that particular grade and brand of 
oil.  As oils get upgraded such as being able to use in diesels or for cars 
with turbochargers, etc., they add new codes. SJ will be one of the two letter

        Hmmm,, okay. Now to sound *really* stupid. If I go to my local auto 
        supplier and ask for API service SJ oil, are they going to know what I 
        Is there a specific name brand, or is this a grade all suppliers 
provide? And, 
        is there other questions they will ask me,, like, what weight, etc......
