Tuesday is additional 25% off. So this is like $3.70/ qt. Is it good oil for our turbos?

Thanks, but would the current 50% apply?

As for good for Turbo? Porsche approval rating and recommended by LN Engineering.

I bought 50 qts, because it did apply. Free shipping and no tax. Seems a good enough deal to stock up to me.

Alas, too good to be true. I ordered 24qts at $5 and the order was just cancelled. I ordered another 36qts at $3.69 and this order was also cancelled by autogeek.

Nobody's in the business of losing money I suppose. Would've been better business to not sell product they didn't actually have or plan to deliver.

Best oil I have ever used for my Harbor Freight gas powered chainsaw! Works awesome, sounds like the rear rattling Mezger engine.

I buy Motul 8100 Xcess every year on Black Friday from an online vendor in Canada. I get 4 5L jugs for $158 CDN and free shipping which works out to $6 a litre in USD. Can’t beat it.

I would not run these oils in a .2 car. The cam solinoids and such are very sensitive to getting gummed up.

Per John Bray at EvoSpec, mobile 1 0-40 is the best thing as the additives in those high zddp oils will gum them up much faster.

For a .1, they are a good oil.

That's the best deal I've seen and my oil of choice as well. Can be bought year around on Amazon for $6.56/liter including 2-day shipping.
