I doubt you have WalMart there, but that is where I find mine. I have used 5W20 in a pinch before without any problems. Of course it doesn't get as cold here as it does there.

NOCO imports many different brands of motor oil into Canada.
Just phone them and ask which types of 0W20 synthetic motor oil they have. (any brand will do) I used to buy Mobile 1 0W20 from them.
You can buy stuff from their Toronto location but ONLY if you phone ahead and place an order over the phone first.

0W-20

I mail-order mine from AMSOIL, 1 gal is about $29. My local Honda dealer allowed me to supply the oil and they supplied the labor.

Hey Guillermo thanks for the tip... I did find those guys... its just a bit frustrating I went to the mobil 1 site and they are again producing 0w20 but seems it hasn't reached here yet...

I do prefer the mobil 1 stuff to the others as I've looked at the specs and it does have a higher and lower tolerance than the other oils of the same make.

If any of you guys come across it definately let me know. I'm going to be scouring the earth for it on Monday. I'll give Noco a call to.

thanks all

Amsoil makes a 0w20 now, it's what I run in my Insight. I got it from them through the mail. I've been told by my oil analysis guy about a great 0w20 from renewable lubricants that's quite expensive but outperforms everything he's ever seen. I run the RLI 5w30 in my Camaro, and I'm very happy with it for what that's worth.

Also, if anyone is having trouble finding Mobil 1 0w20, I have 12 quarts I got from Wal-Mart right before they stopped carrying it. I'll sell it for $5/quart if anyone's interested. I've since switched to Amsoil when they started making a 0w20, and I won't be needing the Mobil 1... e-mail me if you're interested.

I just went to Bennett Auto Supply looking for the 0W-20 oil, and they said that Mobile had discontinued it, and tried to sell me toe 5W-20 instead.

Mobil 1 0w-20 may be availabel but it's almost impossible to find around here. Wal-Mart discontinued carrying it as I purchased the last few quarts they had marked as clearance items. You would think with the ever increasing popularity of hybrids that more stores would start to carry it.

Did you get the new EA extended drain filter? I have been using Amsoil for several years with over 250,000 put on 3 different vehicles with 24,000+ mile changes.
