There are limited Red Line oil dealers up here in Ontario and I have found a good one around the corner from me, but the price is a bit higher than I know I should be able to get. I contacted other "dealers" but none are returning my e-mails and/or calls, even after repeated attempts. I even e-mailed Corporate about this, and regarding my interest in possibly being a dealer for them. 3 times and not 1 response. I think after this lack of service from the dealers and from corporate I will be going back to Amsoil even if their (Red Line) product fairs better in my application. Your experiences?

Same here. Could it be that you have a block on your email and not allowing them to get back to you? Have you tried calling them instead of email? I have emailed Redline several times and always got a quick response.

This is why I started the thread... Not to slander Red Line but to find out other peoples experiences because I have had really terrible luck other than with the Wild Goose guys... But the price isn't the greatest like I said.

I have only called dealers, not Red Line corporate as it is long distance, I have only e-mailed them. I doubt they have a block because I have e-mailed them from 2 different accounts to ensure it wasn't a SPAM filter problem.

I would use Red Line if it's more readily available. Time to stock up on some Motul 300V I suppose if it's going to be that hard to get Red Line.

Frugal is different than being cheap... I will spend the money if I get the performance and extended OCI for the money... I'm in the "testing" stage with their product anyways...
