Was talking to a guy from Canada at Walmart as he grabbed 4 ...5qt jugs of Castrol Edge for $25 a piece and he said it's $50 a jug over there. Wow! Is everything more expensive there or mainly oil?

I would imagine some things are especially since they use liters instead of quarts. Us Americans buy gas by the gallon. Thinking out loud there. The taxes in Canada May also be higher; I may be wrong though.

Our jugs of Castrol Edge or M1 can be had for around $35 canadian taxes included during sales. Our quasi-automotive department store, Canadian Tire has these sales often enough to never have to worry about buying oil for full price. This is especially true once you discover bitog and hoarding oil becomes an increasingly acceptable behavior.

This. Generally buy them at CT for $35, applies to both Castrol and Mobil 1. I bought all of the 0w-40 they had in stock the last time it was on sale.

The Canadian dollar is 79 cents to the U.S. dollar. So assuming goods are imported, they will be about 25% more expensive in Canada relative to the U.S. Plus, I'm sure taxes are higher, as are transportation costs (fuel, regulations, etc.).

Even when the dollar is at parity, we are still significantly more expensive than US goods, just is more encouraging to shop to the south at that point, as you save a ton without the exchange hit.

And this is why I buy Amsoil because it's cheaper than this and better IMO. It's shipped to my door and I'm not supporting Walmart which I hate.

Walmart USA = Decent oil pricing with low mark ups.

Walmart CAN = The most expensive place to buy oil.

Even when you factor in the dollar difference...oil at Walmart in Canada is stupid expensive and not a very good selection.

Plus in Canada the container size is different ... 1 litre is larger by about 2 oz than 1 US Quart (0.946 litre).

I was in Wal-Mart at the beginning of November and they had the $20 rebate coupons for Pennzoil Platinum Synthetic jugs, which were on sale the same day at Canadian Tire for $25. So $5 for 4.7 litres of oil. (Canadian Tire didn't have the coupons on the shelf).

MSRP for Pennzoil Platinum is 49.99 for the 4.73l jug (4.97 US quarts) and only $2 more for the 5l jug (5.28 US Quarts). Almost a third of a quart more for $US 1.56 is a pretty decent deal, wait for a sale, and away you go.

By the way I bought a Mobil1 10W-30 as top-up oil for $C 6.50 ($US 5.07) a litre at Wal-Mart that day. I don't understand people who can't find good deals on oil in Canada, I don't have much trouble.

1 litre is equal to 1.05669 US Quarts.

Ergo, a 5L jug is 5.28 quarts, whilst a 5 quart jug is 4.73L

?? How does 0.946 litre (= 1 US Quart) become larger than 1.00 litre?
