[Canadian Tire] Now $19.99 5L Full Synthetic Oil - Motomaster by Shell [ +25X Loyalty YMMV ]

CT's flyer preview just dropped for this Friday. Full synthetic oil (5L) for $19.99 on their house brand, Motomaster, made by Shell – that’s an amazing deal in my books for a SOPUS product (same as Quaker State/Pennzoil).

EDIT: Looks like there is also a 25X Triangle loyalty offer in the Triangle app, needs to be manually activated. Makes the deal even better if you collect CT money.
*YMMV on loyalty as it seems to be a targeted offer

Thanks for sharing @EasyCompany251 but I think I'll spend a few extra bucks for a Shell product vs a Warren product. I've seen SOME testing and yes there is the famous projectfarm comparison videos but not sure a homemade bench test rig really gives me that much confidence. You get what you pay for, there's a reason they are the cheapest in the market.

Guess I will try and see if they have 4w40 in stock. It is usually sold out or they just don't stock it.

I'm 50/50 on that idea "you get what you pay for" it does hold true on some products, but not ideal mindset to go on. Without going into apples to oranges we should consider some products are marked up higher with little justification.

But project farm evaluations are pretty solid. I do agree we are Not sure if its 100% due to we have limited knowledge on his test equipment(or at least i dont know what he's using) but its not like he's using say a Canadian tire multimeter to do his observations...I hope

First off, I wasn't trying to start a big oil debate - just sharing a good deal.

Definitely not saying projectfarm is not credible (I thoroughly enjoy his contributions and think he's providing consumers with a lot of great information to make their shopping choices), I'm just saying that running a single sample test on a homemade bench rig does not replace hours of lab tests, real engine tests, and in-vehicle testing.

Again, I'm happy spending a few extra bucks for a product that comes from an industry leader that invests in R&D vs a manufacturer that only plays at the bottom.
Yes, "oil is oil" but not all oils are created equally. API is just a MINIMUM standard that manufacturers must meet to don their badge.

And yet car manufacturers specify the API standards for use in their cars.

Unfortunately, I doubt there will be any really scientific studies/comparisons between oils. It would likely require a lot of equipment to conduct standardized testing on the various brands of oil.

Agreed.

And yes, car manufacturers reference the API standards but it still does not mean all oils that meet the requirement will perform the same.

How would CT oil compare to Kirkland? And wouldn't $6 extra for M1 in Walmart be a better choice?

Decent deal. How did you determine it is made by Shell? The description says "developed with Shell Technology", which to me could mean anything in marketing-speak...

There are a few posts on BITOG (bob is the oil guy) discussing this product but it's also mentioned in the MSDS sheet: https://www.canadiantire.ca/content/dam ... 15P_EN.pdf

Kirkland (Costco) uses the same supplier as SuperTech (Walmart) = Warren Distribution
Motomaster (CT) = Shell

To your question on M1 for an extra $6-$7, they all meet industry standards as everyone has mentioned but depends on if you see Exxon > Shell (Also Mobil bottles are 4.73 L only).

I was actually agreeing with you. Just the whole "get what you pay for" isn't always good posture...easy example beats by dre and as you mentioned, we really don't know the standards of PF tests but again im sure they are good enough. Either way I deviated from the main discussion.
