I wonder how their formulation compares to the US version.

Thanks SR5.

The local autobarn was out of the $10 GTX (gee, I wonder why?) so I did a ring around and Dandenong had some remaining. Not wanting to drive that far I dropped into SCA and asked for a price match which they not only matched but beat the price by 5%.

I don't think I have ever purchased oil this cheap and probably should have bought 2 but I didn't want to be greedy. It's a shame that filters are so expensive there though.

Good price on that Edge. Cheap for a full syn but I'm currently a sub 20 dollar oil man these days lol. That GTX is cheap but I wish they could go below the $20 bracket with more 5W/10W-30!

The valvoline engine armour 5W30 at $20 is also good price on semi syn 30 grade! I've only seen Nulon's fast flow or whatever the heck it's called 5W30 go for sub $20 in 30 grade. Oh and of course that magnatec I managed to get for $17 per 5L recently. Can't remember how the [censored] I got it at that price but I got two of the 10W30! I really need to not buy oil for another 3-5 years...

I like that Magnatec 10W30 semi-synthetic, it's a good oil and that was a great price.

Yeah I don't need anymore oil, but I find the Edge 10W30 A5/B5 very tempting. It has a KV100 of 10.47 cSt, and a HTHS of 3.2 cP, which is a lot of HTHS for the kinematic viscosity, which means a low polymer VII load - so shear stable and low Noack volatility.

For comparison, regular Mobil1 5W30 has a KV100 of 11.0 cSt and a HTHS of 3.1 cP.
