this can't be right! edit...(and it wasn't)

Start oil threads here so they can be ignored and/or ridiculed by most of us (except for those hardcore few that live for that kinda stuff).

Here's the place for you to debate what oil is best. Post your oil related topics her so we don't clutter up the other sections. Most people avoid oil threads like the plague.

decided to check out Motul prices, since they're the recommended elixir now, and found this on Amazon. Placed an order, see what happens. Works out to $1.22/quart & free shipping! Hopefully it will ship before someone realizes is a screw up.

I´ll not believe it until you got your deliveries...
In CR such offers you find sometimes in Chineese Supermarkets... Origin=robbed delivery trucks.

What I cannot believe its right is, that ...
appearantly you do not get "PJ1 chain lube" in continental Europe. Only one UK contact I got when I called in AZ headquarter.

Mine cancelled also, "out of stock" haha. Guess I'll stick to Castrol in the summer and Rotella T6 in the winter, seems to have worked well so far.

Same here :puter:

It says to expect a refund in 1-2 business days and I just checked my account and I just received the money back.
