I noticed this a few months ago at the local Rite Aid. I'd love to try it but recall it being pretty cost-prohibitive at like $6.50 a quart as Rite Aid is no longer a good place to buy oil.

I was just curious if anyone else has ever used it or even noticed it?

BTW, it comes in a red bottle instead of white and has some pretty impressive numbers:

They're both great oils, the numbers come down to price and availability. I've never seen Shell HM at a parts store or on sale. I'd definitely buy it on a special, but the days of Rite Aid putting motor oil on sale--much less having great deals--are long gone. They used to be great for picking up Havoline here as they often had it for about a $1 a qt. on sale, but long since stopped carrying it...

In Canada, you can buy this oil at Canadian Tire as 'Formula 1 High Mileage', $26/5L jug regular price.

I stopped into Rite Aid last night and their oil section is just a shadow of what it once was. Formula Shell HM is $5.99 a qt...

Addyguy. Are you sure CT's Formula 1 HM is made by Shell?

Shell may make MotoMaster's Formula 1 High Mileage Oil, but they also make Pennzoil's High Mileage Oil and Quaker State's Defy High Mileage Oil, all with different specs... Canadian Tire's Shell MSDS shows practically nothing. I tried inquiring with Shell over a week ago.

An MSDS isn't supposed to show much of anything. Most of the technical data sheets that Shell has these days are questionable anyhow. I'm sure Shell will tell you to ask Canadian Tire, since it's their branded oil, and Canadian Tire will tell you to ask Shell, since they make the product. wink
