Similar sale pricing on 0W40 Mobil1 here in Canada... However, what really gets me is the inflated pricing of the Mobil1 filters. Most parts stores here primarily carry FRAM or some house brand, so Mobil1 are the most readily available good filter, but holy smokes they are costly now - regular price is now pushing $18/19 ea!! That's double what I used to pay getting them on sale. Have they started to make the filter material out of platinum or something?
I always use the oversized "pt cruiser turbo" filters in the 9-5's, as I feel having a bit more surface area is better where these cars are a bit touchy wrt oil quality.
Used to be able to find bosch filters everywhere, but less so now. I've heard napa gold filters are fairly decent, so maybe I should look there.
