That location in Brampton is less than 10 minute drive away from where I usually am when in Canada. I actually am mostly in the US these days, but I haven't updated my profile. So, they'll do TBN and TAN for no extra charge? Excellent!

Another factor is that many of the newer cartridge filters with unique end styles and constuction are still within a 14 year design patent window. Filter makers outside of OEM contract made ones have to either find a work around design that does not

I have some engines that call for 40:1 and some that call for 50:1. I use 40:1 with non-oxygenated gas in everything. I figure I'd rather be a little over spec on oil content than under.
