.....100% synthetic is on sale this week. $3.99/U.S.qt. (946ml) P.B.
quote:They aren't. The label says 946ml, which also happens to be one U.S Quart. This stuff comes from Shell Canada. Couldn't say whether this particular product is packaged by Shell in the U.S and sent here (Canada), or whether Shell Canada packages it here in just one size (U.S. quart) and then sells it on both sides of the border. I've got my first run of this stuff(5W-30) in my 2.7L Intrepid right now. I'm thinking of doing a UOA on it at 5000 or 6000 KM. While Esso XD-3 is a far better deal in terms of bang for the buck, it isn't as conveniently available as the Canadian Tire stuff. The Canadian Tire Formula 1 Full Synthetic goes on sale every 6-8 weeks. If it weren't for the heavier viscosity of the XD-3 (5w-30), I'd be running it all year round. Phil
I wonder why the Formula 1 are in U.S. quarts ?? [I dont know] P.B.
quote:Thanks for the info. The rules may have changed a little on this side of the border as well. I know I almost got pulled over for buying liquor and bringing it back a few hours later (so cheap at the Duty Free), but that may extend to other products now (which is silly really, although they may consider Esso 0W-30 syn to be top shelf liquor as well...)
Originally posted by Vasili: ... EDIT: I just checked and it turns out for Canadians coming back from the USA, if we have stayed less then 24 hours we can't bring back anything duty free. I have no idea what the rules would be for Americans coming back home from Canada, so you will have to check with your Customs office.

quote:I buy Esso XD-3 in 4 litre jugs available at any WalMart in the Toronto area. I did try to buy a case from a bulk dealer in the west end but they wanted me to open an account, order in advance by telephone, pick up during extremely restricted hours, they did not have any when I was there etc. They were just not set up to do retail business with civilians. Fine by me, but the hassle is not worth it to save about 60 cents a litre.
