I always got it from partsource, watched the flyers and waited for it on sale. But they didn't have it anywhere in stores for my last oil change.

JB's in Edmonton is Amazon's Redline supplier up here,and you can usually buy it cheaper off their shelves,and most times Mopac will beat JB's price.Both are old school brick and mortar speed shops in western Canada

My Local parts store get it for me from JB at a better deal. :cool: still 75$per gallon tho! :(

Im thinking that I could use 1 gallon of RL 5w30 and the other couple liters I might just add PUP 5w30 for top up...

This is the cheap Frenchmen talking out loud here...lol...

I just tried the Amsoil Canada Oil analyst service for my PUP 5w30 that I just dumped. Hoping my Cam is breaking in nice after the unfortunate start up **** up on my part. :crazy:

I had made my first oil change a few weeks ago. I didn't like how thin the 5/20 was and plan to switch over to 5/30 at the next change. I was also shocked that the drain bolt was barely finger tight.
