Looks like its harder to find who's the supplier for this oil, than it was difficult to find Saddam... Its nothing like Petro-Canada It's not Esso anymore. Its nothing like Shell and they refuse to confirm... Its nothing like Castrol, QS, or Valvoline Canadian doesn't want to say it... All I could get from them is : Supreme 5W30 (CT mid grade Dino) Approvals: API SL, ILSAC GF-3, JASO T 903 MA quality, GM 6094M Meets requirements, M2C153E Meets requirements Specs: Pour Point: -38 Flash Point: 220 Visc Index: 149 Visc @ 40 Deg C: 68.1 Visc @ 100 Deg C: 10.8 Supreme 10W30(CT mid grade dino) Approvals: API SL, ILSAC GF-3, JASO T 903 MA quality, GM 6094M Meets requirements, M2C153E Meets requirements Specs: Pour Point: -36 Flash Point: 235 Visc Index: 131 Visc @ 40 Deg C: 69.6 Visc @ 100 Deg C: 10.2 Formula 1 5W30 mineral( top dino with wearguard?)

Last time I contacted my friend that works at CT head office, told me it is Shell at the present time. Use to be Imperial Oil (Esso).

http://eolcs.api.org/ I wrote to the API, asked about it, and got a reply saying that CT did not renew their license last year. They are also claiming that all their grades are "energy conserving", even the 20w50. Even the Safety Kleen recycled oil at Wal Mart is on the list of API licensees, and it's much less expensive than CT's oil. I dunno what's going on at Canadian Tire.

I've heard too that Shell is the supplier, but they doesn't want to say it. One thing for sure they brew a special batch for Can.tire or they play with the data sheet since none of the original shell oil have the same data compared to the Can tire
