    Zellers' Auto Prix or Superstore's No Name Brand

    Scratch that No Name bottle being similar to Esso, must've been hallucinating or something. Anyhow, will try on the Mystique. Either that or the PP I picked up on sale at Wal-Mart this weekend.

    Condensation does syn oil get rid of it??

    Already doing that. It's the coolant heater in the radiator hose type. Guess I'll stick with that and do the longer trip thing at least once a week as well.

    Condensation does syn oil get rid of it??

    Oil Shearing

    Is there any particular reason why an HT/HS of 3.5 is used as the threshold/benchmark of a good oil. Does it depend on the engine the oil is used in or is it an generally acceptable standard.

    Motrlube

    Anyone ever hear of Motrlube? It sells synthetic (PAO basestock) motor oil in the 10w40 weight. Made right here in my home province of Alberta! <img border="0" alt="[Canada]" title="" src="/forums/graemlins/canada.gif" /> Any experiences or opinions on their products?

    Opinions on Pitt Penn/Gearhead

    Has anyone used or heard anything about Pitt Penn or Gearhead motor oils? I just used Gearhead 5W30 full synthetic last week and I wanted to get some user feedback on their products. Thanks.
