Question Canadians: Motor oil - pretty damn expensive.

Bought case of 12 quart AMSOIL 5w40 and that's $120 before taxes and shipping from their online store...

Where do you guys get your oil?

I wait until CanTi has Castrol Syntec 5w40 on sale and I buy a few jugs. Mobil1 0w40 never goes on sale around here. You're lucky if you can find it.

Canadian Oil toooo expensive !

Went for a drive across the border in Niagara Falls last thursday. Picked up 9 bottles of Mobil1 (0w-40) at Car Quest auto parts.. for $7.99 each.
In T0. a bottle each is $11.00 at Can tire and Parts Source + HST !
Even with the Canadian Dollar at $1.05 ! or you could deal with guys advertising at Kijiji or Craigslist, but you take your chance...
just thought i'd share...

Castrol Syntec 5W-40 from CT or Wallyworld in their 5L jugs. $35 last time at W. That's a whole $7/L for you math-challenged.

i have been using Petrocan Duron syn 5w40.

i usually get a case of it from the local bulk distributor (used in our passat, and tdi beetle too) when doing the oil changes. UOA results look okay
