Thanks in advance for any reviews.


welcome I have the 5w30 Supreme Synthetic in my wife's 2014 Terrain. I use my Petro Points, so my last oil change was free. Well, actually
it cost $6 for the filter. grin cheers

If you look at the 5L jugs used by Liqui-Moly, the cap has two openings. The upper opening has an "easy pour" feature, much like a can of Pentosin CHF-11S, where you pull out an almost built in, clear, rubber funnel to control the flow. Petro-Canada buckets are the exact same way, the flow of oil pouring out is easy to control. You just have to ensure the smaller cap on the opposite side is also open, so the oil flows out easier.

I just put a funnel I bought from Walmart on top of the jug for good measure and pour it in, never had any problems. The first time you pour, you just have to be careful you don't tip the bucket too much, otherwise some oil might drip as you pull the bucket away. Other than that, you just need good lighting to see when it's up to level, so you know when to stop.

Personally, I don't see the need to invest in a pump for a 20 liter bucket; especially as you go through it. A pump would be understandable if this was a 208 liter drum, but when there's 15 liters or less in there, the second or third time you use it, you really don't even need the funnel on the jug.

How many liters are in a cubic meter of water?
How much does a cubic meter of water weigh?
How much does one liter of water weigh?
A mono grade engine oil weighs about 90% of water weight.
Times 20. Plus the weight of the pail.

Great to see another PC oil user! I am running their Duron 10w30 and Duradrive ATF in my 2017 ram 3500. Great stuff and very reasonably priced. I also like Federated Co-op oils. While their motor oils have drastically increased in price, they are somewhat competitive but I have been using their drivetrain oils for many years now. I think I paid around 8$ a litre, all in for their full synthetic group 4 75w90 gear oil in a 5 litre jug and around 9$ all in per litre for 80w140 in a 20L pail and around 9.50$ a litre all in for their group 4 based ATF SL. All great fluids and have not broken the bank to buy.

Another popular oil you can get in 20 liter pails and can get on sale is Shell Rotella in various grades. You can also get a rebate in Canada. Shows up on sale at Canadian Tire.

Don't buy this pump. I purchased two of them at 70% off a few years ago. The suction is gone after one use. Don't waste your money, buy a good one that you can use for years.

Thanks for all the info ! Glad to hear from actual users. I change the oil roughly at 5000km or 6 months. It has always used conventional and not gonna play with synthetics after 15 years. It's always been done on schedule so I am happy. The engine will more than likely be the last thing to go.

Just look in the flipp app, it's a coupon app and check motor oil until it comes up at parts source. I use the app for a lot of my day to day purchases. My other 2 vehicles, a 3.3l caravan and 318 ram van both use synthetic but the Corolla I bought used, mint, from the dealer who got it traded in from a senior.

I cannot find this sale. My postal code is M6P1B7 and Flipp does not bring up PetroCanada oil at all. PartsSource says there are no flyers currently.

It was in a week or 2 ago, I got it on sale the time before, maybe a couple months ago. It will come back, but still a reasonable price if you need.

Here is a bottle of Petro-Canada motor oil stocked at my local off-brand gas station. Not sure where he got it. It’s API SN Plus and also Dexos rated. Enjoy.
