Costco has Castrol Syntec - 100% will look into this .. will also use a filter for synthetic oil .. want to keep my costs down .. I figure I can do a full change + filter + 100 syn oil for well under 50$ - this included local taxes .. I'll pop the hood over the next couple of days and check things out .. I'll be hitting the 3000km mark and want to do the first change.
Kostkoe has traditionally carried Mobil 1 or Castrol Syntec (for synthetics) since those large manufacturers can supply in bulk.
Castrol syntec is perfectly good oil.
Truth is, any current major brand synthetic motor oil is perfectly good. So you can get your 600 roll paper towel supply and motor oil with one visit to Kostkoe
