We know the European Formula version of MotoMaster's Formula 1 Synthetic has been made by CITGO for almost a year now.

I was at one of the Canadian Tire locations in Saskatoon yesterday and noticed the regular Formula 1 Syn's bottles are identical to that of the Euro formula, which draws me to this one conclusion: SOPUS is no longer making F1 Synthetic.

Perhaps this is a sign of things to come for the entire MM line. I won't be buying anything made by President Maduro....ever.

So if you are a fan of (what is believed to be) rebadged Formula Shell Synthetic, head out to your nearest CT and stock up, because once they're gone, they're gone.

MotoMaster branded stuff always goes to the lowest bidder, not surprised. I never thought the shell made Formula 1 oils were that good to begin with, had less than 2000ppm of calcium additive IIRC, TBN was much lower than PP. I don't see any reason to buy this stuff especially when Pennzoil keeps offering $10 per jug rebates.

There is a reason Formula 1 oil is the price it is. Never used it and never had any desire to.

That's for the Motomaster Formula 1 Synthetic Euro, considering it's the same as Citgo's

Just check bottom right corner on the back label if it has 'Ashland' there.

But this is for laughs smile

where the h3ll did they find the guy? he could start pouring closer to the bottom of the glass... how did it even make it to be a CT commercial?

Who cares if you like President Maduro or not? Even President Maduro doesn't care.
