My Chrysler dealer switched from Mobil to SOPUS frown

They've got two boxes of M1 0w-40 + 5L loose that are sitting by the counter for me cry

They are now carrying the SRT 0w-40 and PU 5w-40 (the latter packaging still stating SM for those curious)

This means if I want it, I'll have to get it from CT now, unless they can special order it and still honour the price I was getting before, which I'm doubtful about.

I think the SRT 0w40 will serve you well.

Otherwise, why not try RLI 0w30, RL 0w40, or 300V 0w40?

The SRT stuff isn't LL-01, whilst M1 0w-40 and PU 5w-40 are. I'm highly inclined to stick to an approved lubricant for this application.

Though I may add that the potential silver lining here is an awesome price on PU 5w-40 and meaning I no longer have to order it from Amazon shrug

M1 SM 0W-40 is the best light 0W-40 for winter use that's on the BMW LL-01 list.

Was M1 0W-40 that good of a deal at your Chrysler dealer?
It's almost always on sale at Cdn Tire for $8.40/L and sometimes cheaper.

BTW what is the Chrysler price for the SRT (PP?) 0W-40 and PU 5W-40?

Imperial Oil should be able to get it for you at about a couple bucks per litre cheaper than WM or CT. Or, you could go for Delvac 1 and really save! wink

Yes, the deal I had with the parts manager meant that it was cheaper than CT on sale.

I haven't asked about pricing on the SOPUS products. I can find out however.

In Canada there is also Delvac 1 ESP 0w40, which on paper looks almost identical to M1 0w40. No formal approval though.

Yup, at this time I'm unwilling to deviate from an LL-01 oil.
