I think that past posts indicate that Tech2000 is PetroCanada and that SuperTech isn't QS but a separate company bought by QS to PZ to Shell and that quite likely the new ST will be the same as Shell to make up for the lost Equilon market.
quote:I have seen it on Petro-Canada (gas station) shelves in Nova Scotia. The last time was in May, just outside Mahone Bay. They had two lines of synthetic, one noted as hydrocracked and a second identified as PAO.
Actually I believe they do. TooSlick has mentioned a 0w30 PC oil in the past. It's not at the gas stations though, I believe it's special order.
quote:Well, even though I said this a while ago, I decided to pick up some of this Tech 2000 0w30 today to try in my mom's car. I'll be sticking with 3-4k intervals anyways, since it takes her about a year to go that distance. It was $21.98 for a 4.4L jug (which coincidentally is her oil capacity!), which is $4.99 per liter, vs $6.66 for GC. I know GC would show her good results, but I'm just curious to see how this oil does, especially after I heard it was supplied by Petro Canada (so this stuff could be their Duron 0w30, which is 11.5cst at 100c) I'll be draining her current oil (5w30 GTX HM) in a week or two, and putting in this stuff. Unfortunately, it'll be next fall before we see the results from it. So hopefully someone else will try it and do a UOA before me. They also had some really old 0w30 synthetic there, called Walmart's finest, which was SJ rated and supplied by Syn-Oil of Toronto. I was also happy to see more GC 0w30 on the shelf there (Meadowvale Walmart), 12L worth (last week there were only 6 or 7L) and strangely enough only 7 of the 10 old bottles of 0w30 remain now. Who would've bought only 3L of 0w30? (and why would they buy the old stuff too, when it's buried behind the GC!?) You guys are the only ones who understand how I can get entertainment from visiting the oil aisles at Walmart and Canadian Tire!
Originally posted by Patman: It would be interesting to see how this oil performs, however when it's on the same shelf as the 0w30 Castrol Formula SLX, it's hard to turn that oil down, even if it's a dollar or two more per liter.
