Does anybody know the real reason why AutoZone is the only retail store in the USA that sells Syntec 0w30 & 5w40? Advance Auto Parts carries every Syntec oil except these two. I would much rather shop at AAP than AZ, so that's what made me wonder why AZ is the only place that carries the only two Syntecs that I need.

Well, if you REALLY must know, the Elves told Castrol that they wanted their marvelously magic oil carried at every auto store from A to Z; they had not thought through all the possibilities that could generate, for having it sold at <b>A</b>uto<b>Z</b>one does technically, I suppose, answer the mail.

A BITOGer reported he ordered 2 cases of GC 0w30 from O'Reilly's Auto Parts and to his great surprise and delight received GC Green batch M0501xxx. So it appears it can be done although I don't know if AAP can order it.
