Yeah, no Sustina here either (Napa). A few buddies swear by this Eneos... No gimmicks, good specs (good slug of Moly/Boron for a syn), foil seal, and very secure cap for storage. At $24.29 for the regular price, i might stick with it for the Sonata.

I know Napa at least used to sell PU up here. I think Clevy bought up all the old stock in the province, so unless they aren't carrying the new stuff, there's nothing left.
