this may of been address previously but here goes...the formula 1 synthetic oil carried by canadain tire in canada..is it any good and who makes ??any info or who has used ? their thoughts..thanks the winemaker
Shell is supplying Can Tire for the Supreme. formula 1, mineral blend and synthetic.
The shell synthetic is 100% PAO
The blend may get between 40/60 % of synth.base.
The data sheet sent by Can.Tire and Shell are very similar, the only difference seems to me that they tried to make them look different.However the Shell representative is saying that the Shell oil are better quality and will exceed API requirment and C.T. oil will just meet the requirement.
Most of the info I have is in French, if you want to see it I can always try to post here

You think -24 degree celcius is not really cold ? I live in the coldest climate of north america. Max temperature is 31 in summer and minimum temperature in winter is -35 degree. -45 to -55 with wind factor adjustment.
Some of these oils, I think are a lot better than the board is giving them credit for.
