There’s a place in town that sells Motul motor oil. They have two Dexos 2 oils in stock. The 5w40 meets MB 229.51 and the 5w30 meets MB 229.52. Also, for you hard core Thickies, they had 10w60 in ACEA A3/B4. Enjoy!

nothing like a X-power 10w60 in the sump to ease your mind.

That's not a bad price for a synthetic ion Canada! Aren't even house brands around that price up there?

Yes, the last place I saw Motul was much more than that, and that was years ago, too.

The store is Lordco Auto Parts. They have 100 stores in BC and for some reason they like to import Motul as one of their offerings. And yes, the non-sale price for most oil in western Canada is now over $50 Canadian ($37.50 US). I heard Oz has the same issue.

The ONLY places around here which have any Motul products on their shelves at all are a 'tuner shop' in Montgomeryville which carries the 300V line, and their brake fluids, and some (sort of) local crotch rocket shops in the Quakertown/Coopersburg area, which carry the bike spec stuff, and the brake fluids.

That is impressive that any retail place carries the 'regular spec', non-300V, auto oils on the shelf. thumbsup

I'd give that 5W30 a try if it were readily available around me...
