The weather has been significantly colder with the German Castrol as well. You would think the colder temps. would reduce gas mileage like normal.

Maybe that's why it's being pulled from dealers' shelves in warmer climes!!? I believe a concerted investigation by members of The Oz Contingent is in order! They could reveal the greater truths being withheld from an ignorant population! What does it all mean??!! (Why does everything have an exclamation mark??!!)

Big ten-four on that. I'm just wondering when did this stuff become God-like? I mean, over time only a few oils were "kind of" praised. But all of a sudden KA-POW, everybody is praising this GC German version. I don't see what the big hoopla is all about.
