Thanks but I have a few cans of my own 0W20, that I threw together in the lab in the garage waiting to be used up. It's 8 years old now but that's not a problem. Oil rarely goes off (well not the ones I blend!). I only threw the cost of the Petronas oil in to illustrate that not everywhere in the world is as cheap as the US. If you think that was bad, get this... Last September I took my wife's Suzuki into the dealers for it's two year service. You are sort of obliged to do this to maintain the warranty. Now my wife, bless her, won't drive more than ten miles in any given direction. In 12 months, the car has done all of 2,000 miles and that's only because occasionally I use it for a decently long run to charge the battery up. So the dealer services the car and presents me with a bill for £250 ($US 337.50)! I can't even blame it on the oil because from empty to full, the car's tiny 1.0 litre engine takes 3.7 litres of oil. This is kind of normal here.
