Yes, that was my plan to pm with Partsource and buy from Canadian tire. Thanks for the valuable tips.

What's the difference between buying from CT and partsource? Will pm bring down the price 10% like home center?

Yes they give 10% back in CTire money and for me personally, CT location is closer.

I tried PM at CT yesterday during waiting for my wife. The lady refused PM as the flyer of Partsource shows 0W-20, and she said it gotta be exactly the same to do PM.

Please mind my ignorance, what's the difference between the platinum (synthetic) and the conventional? Will there be any value added if the platinum is used with a 10 year old car?

I have a 12 y/o car and recently did the switch from conventional to Synthetic.
No issues at all (I was initially worried about leaks if my seals were a bit shot).

I did frequent oil changes before the switch however, so the engine was well cared for.
Before the switch, I used one of those 'blends' for high mileage cars. Not sure if this was really necessary.

I'm currently on about 8000km on the first synthetic oil change. I didn't want to run it this long but the car appears to be running much smoother that it did if I used conventional.

I have consistently been checking for leaks and no issues so I'm not turning back. From what I've read, I believe the additives in synthetic to be good for longevity of the engine overall.

I intend to keep the same recommended OCI (6500km) as specified in the manual, which might be overkill for synthetic oil.

Ten years isn't even that old. Synthetic oil has it's benefits (more protection, better low temp performance, high heat performance), its more expensive but you can run longer oil change intervals (10-15k+). Just make sure your car doesn't burn/consume oil; you won't be able to take advantage of the long oci and might as well stick with conventional.

Definitely overkill, I would at least double that with a good filter. Fram XP, Napa Gold, CarQuest Blue, M1, Wix XP, etc.

Unfortunately, I just bought a whole bunch of regular Wix filters.
I might just extend the OIC to 9k or there abouts.

Nothing to worry about, I'm pretty sure regular Wix = Napa gold, Carquest blue. It's a good filter that can easily do a long oci, much longer than 9k.

Is your vehicle still under warranty?
If yes, I would stick to that OCI until the warranty period is over!

I submitted 1 receipt for 3 jugs back in November's special (28 bucks then per jug CTC); recently received $30.00 cheque rebate. What's funny is that when I went to their rebate site link, I saw an ad for $10.00/off per litre-- I advised them and said I'd take a truck load at that price; the "Team" was asked to respond to my comment and nothing happened for weeks and I kept going back having received no response-- finally, after a month or 2, they got back and said it was an error, thank you..lol And as for Fram filters, which I have bought throughout my life, I am now concerned after watching several comparisons of oil filters on YouTube... :(
