Anyone know who makes this specific oil Motomaster Formula 1 Euro 5W-30 as it meets BMW LL-04 which is impressive for the price, specially when it goes on sale. I'm sure its just re-labled something.

It is "suitable for" BMW LL-04. They cannot claim that it actually meets spec as they have not paid for the licensing costs to represent it as an oil that actually meets the spec. You will be fine if you choose to use it.

The MM F1 5W-30 Eurpoean Formula is made by CITGO. For that reason alone, I returned the two jugs I picked up from CT. President Maduro doesn't deserve any support from me (or anyone else for that matter).

FWIW, here's a list of other applications it meets:

BMW LL04
VW 504.00, 507.00
Mercedes Benz 229.51
API SN

It's available in 5w30, 0w30 and 0w40 grades.

Nice to see CT stepping up to the competition and finally offer an oil that meets the stringent demands of the European auto market thumbsup

On sale this week. $30 for 5L jug. 5W30 Euro or 0W-40 Euro. Non Euro synthetic even cheaper. Stock up!

My real beef is wondering what the advantage is when Castrol 0w-30 A3/B4 will be $32 to $34 next week, or the week after.

Good point. I don't plan to use this in my BMW because I'm picky, maybe use it in my Saab, but the non Euro synthetic stuff which is even cheaper is fantastic for the average, everyday non Euro application, where people are concerned about cost of synthetic.

While at least one of their options has formal approvals, I do wonder about their strategy of a lot of "recommended for" options, particularly at that price point. If I want a "close enough" solution, I get Delvac 1 a lot cheaper than the non-compliant Canadian Tire stuff. They should consider selling it for $25 to $30 a jug all the time, and skip the specials.

I have no problem with their ordinary, ILSAC type synthetics or conventionals. They're actually certified SN/GF-5 as indicated.

I know this topic is a bit older but I was wondering if anyone here has been using this oil at all? I'm looking for a different oil for my wife's car now that M1 0w40 doesn't have the BMW LL spec anymore, so this oil looks like it could fit the bill. The next time it's on sale I might just grab some. (or should I just forget about this CT oil and grab some Castrol 0w40 from Walmart when I'm in the US this week?)

You could use it, assuming it's approved, if that's what you're looking for. Castrol 5w-30 A3/B4 (harder to find) is LL01. The Castrol 0w-40, of course, is probably the path of least resistance (and least cost) these days. PP Euro 5w-40 is another option at Canadian Tire, but they don't have as many 1 litre sales as they used to.
