Some pretty cheap deals. Mobil1 hit it's lowest ever price of $54, which is still a joke.

But note worthy mentions are Nulon 5W30 Euro @ $61 for 10L

Penrite 10W40 semi syn is $74 for 20L

Valvoline Engine Armour 10L are cheap at $39 per 10L

Valvoline syn powers are all around $29-30 per 5L too.

The tempting thing is that you get a $20 credit if you spend $100 or more.

That's very good

A semi-synthetic Penrite or Engine Armour for under $20 for 5L

And full synthetic SynPower or Nulon 5W30 Euro (a PAO based VW 504 / 507 oil) for about $30 for 5L.

I have enough, but they are good Australian prices.

That's $18.50 for the standard 5L

I like the Penrite 10W40 semi-synthetic, it's SN and A3/B4 and VW 502/505 with a TBN of 10.2 and 1080 ppm Zinc.

The Penrite KV100 = 13.8 cSt which is on the thin side for a 10W40 which I like. The Magnatec 10W40 has a KV100 = 14.5 cSt for comparison.

I know that Australia produces plenty of oil domestically, and I would suspect that you also refine in Australia (hence all of your wonderful cars like the Monaro/GTO)? Do you refine and blend your own motor oil? If so, shouldn't the gasoline/oil price ratio be comparable on domestically produced motor oil?

I don't know much about this sort of stuff.

Australian oil companies like Penrite and Nulon certainly do blend their own oils, many of which are unique to the Australian and New Zealand market.

We have oil and refineries in Australia, but I don't know where the above companies source their base oils.

I hear the price we pay for petrol (gas) is more a reflection of international market prices and less of production prices. We have a big tax on fuel in Australia, so our prices are very inflated with respect to North American prices.

I'm sure others know more about all this than I do.

Yes its a great deal, but I'm going to resist. Last month SCA had a 50% off SynPower sale and I picked up some at $30 for 5L.

SynPower 5W30 FE which is ACEA A5/B5 and API SL due to elevated zinc levels and some Ford WSS spec it carries.

This site keeps me nicely informed of sales.

I drove past a Repco today.

For $30 you get 5L of Castrol Magnatec 10W40 semi-synthetic (SN, A3/B4) plus a free Repco oil filter. The filters usually sell for $8 to $10 in standard sizes.
