GoHack, If you don't have Autozone (only place in US of which I am aware that is carrying it) you might try Wal-Mart in Vancouver or other Canadian city close to you. The answer to your comparison question is not fully fleshed out with supporting data yet, but I predict we'll find out that it is. [ August 31, 2003, 04:20 PM: Message edited by: pscholte ]

I just got back, having checked out everyone in the local area, here in Central Washington state. I went to three different Walmarts, a Shopco, a K-Mart, a Target, and a Schucks Auto Parts, w/no luck. I did find something interesting at Walmart, 5W-50 Castro Syntec oil. I've never seen 5W-50 before. I also found 0W-30 Castro Syntec at K-Mart, but it wasn't the German oil. It said it was made here in the US in NJ. Oh well, I guess I'll just go for the Mobil 1. I would of liked to try the German Castro though.

GROUCHO MARX, Yesterday, I left 4 cases--FOUR CASES--alone at one of our Autozones...but after Labor Day...well, let's just say they are "at risk." [Big Grin]

GROUCHO MARX, Don't tell me that the stories--I always thought they were just legends--about you (and even Elvis) are true?... [Eek!] gasp! [Eek!] PS Could I have your autograph? (and would you say the secret woid?)

I've been reading here how the US 0w-30 Castrol Syntec has it's letters in yellow while the German 0w-30 is in red. I could of sworn, now that I think of it, that the one one I saw at K-Mart was white. It was also in a different shaped bottle also, more square shaped vs. rectangular w/the normal Syntec bottles. I should of opened it to see it's color.

Yes, I'm done adding to my supply until I start using some of it up! [Smile] Now that CT sells it, I'll just wait until they have sales on it too, so instead of paying $6.66 for it at Walmart, it'll be $6.29.

There is no German Castrol in Washington and I even checked Leavenworth (inside joke for us Washingtonians). I mean I have looked EVERYWHERE.
You don't have to go any farther east than Leavenworth, I've aleady checked out Wenatchee, Ephrata, and Moses Lake. [Frown]

Gentlemen of the no-kidding, downright beautiful Cascade State, I believe it is time for you to take a trip north to see the Fall foliage........and to visit the first Canadian Wal-Mart that you come across. [Big Grin]
