Just scored some on sale at AA for $25 and $7 for the Mann filter. I ordered 25 more qts and 5 more filters at the same price that will be delivered to store next week. It works out to $3 qt after the Rennzoil rebate. Sale ends tomorrow.

Removed receipt.

Nice, they're showing it here for $9.99/quart. I might have to make a trip and actually look.

You have to ask for the sale price. I had one store dick around and claim it want not included in the sale price.
It is rebottled Shell Helix Ultra ECT 0w30 which is one of Shells best Euro oils.

I'll give it a shot. I might try it in my van and compare it to PU 5w30.

Darn, super darn. I just drained that out of my car on Sunday, filling it with something else. I may have started a thread in this Pennzoils late last year. I wanted to use the oil again and do a UOA, but didn't wanna spend $10 a quart.

No Idea, each store seems to make up stuff as they go along. The store I went to let me buy what I wanted.

Thanks for sharing Trav thumbsup

Curious, how is it different than Euro 5W30(for diesels) because I have that one laying around? Might use it in Acura which calls for 5W30.

The underlying specifications drive the difference. Euro L 5W-30 has BMW LL-04, but does not have VW 504/507, Porsche C30, or MB 229.52 like Euro LX does. Euro LX does not have LL-04.

The L has Dexos 2 spec among other which is the common spec for all Euro GM gassers so it should be no problem. Ditto with the LX it has MB 229.51 and VW 504 so its backward compatible to 502. You could use either in yours IMO with no issues.

Low sulfur fuel is not as big an issue anymore although people still get worked up about it. I don't get into high VI but for those that do it has a VI of 204 and a HTHS of 3.5 and a good add pack with high Boron and 880 ppm zinc so the protection is there.

AA has this PP sale quite often and now I know where to get it the stash is getting built. I got separate receipts for each 5qt deal so its no problem to have family members submit them. At this price its cheaper than Mobil 1 or Castrol 0w40 from Wally's.

ECT C2/C3, AV-L and AB-L seem to the same oil, just with different names and different approvals. At least the numbers on the datasheets are all identical...
