I know they carry the dino oil stuff.
I would like to know which one as well.
It would be good not having to drive to Walmart across the border.

i have used mobil0w40 extensively, its just i find it breaks down in my engine a lot quicker than the shell. oil analysis showing it's shearing to nearly a w30 oil, whereas the shell is holding up.
