No problem, I actually had this posted on the UOA section when I first had it done. I was impressed, I think for the $3.60 a quart I paid for the oil that I am getting a very good add-pack. I buy it from a local independent store that always has the owner behind the counter and he's very resourceful and helpful. We actually run 3 varieties of Wolf's Head in my house. Super Duty 10-30, Syn Pack 5-30 Dexos, and 15-40 Extreme Duty. These 3 weights cover all our vehicles requirements and I get it for a decent price and team it with the Wix filters he sells. I suppose I could save a few pennies going to Wal Mart or something. However, is Wal-Mart going to source me a Lada Niva clutch or spend an hour trying to cross reference 2CV wheel bearings?

I like those kind of autopart stores... not mainstream and knowledgeable folks that have been in the automotive industry for many years... Along the same lines as our local Western Auto.. I know I might pay more ,but they know what I'm looking for and always seem to have my parts in stock or know how to get them.

I've seen Wolf's Head gain a foothold here in Kalamazoo over the last couple years and have used it with no issues in my outdoor power equipment and customer vehicles like this 2CV very often. I'm a little surprised at how well this oil fared in Mr. Boyle's 2CV, given the cost, compared to Rotella and Delo which have been used in past. I'd have no problems running this oil in any HD application that requires 15W-40 I just wish it were more widely sold here in Michigan. If anyone is looking for a good quality lube, don't be afraid to run with the wolf.

I used to use their oil all the time when I lived back home in NYC. I used to buy it from a speed shop out on Long Island when they would clear it out for $1 a quart. It was always the 5W50 that was cleared out and really dusty. I used it in a car that really didn't care what it got and never had issues with it. Have not seen it on a shelf in quite a while though.
