Where can I get this oil in BC? Any thoughts of when to switch on the 1000? Some say right away, some say 2500k and some say 8000k. Anyone had negative results changing to full synthetic at say around 2500k?

There is no reason not to change to synthetic right away.

Kenworth stores now handle the retailing of Rotella Oil.. I don't know if this is Canada wide, only Ontario or just GTA. Give them a quick call.

Never heard of Kenworth before. Maybe they are only in Ontario. No bulk Shell Stations around too. I saw Rotella T 15-40 in CTC but no where on the bottle did it mention "synthetic". Does that mean there is a Rotella T dyno as well?

The Rotella 15/40 that CTC sells is dino oil. I have seen Rotella Synth in 0/40 weight, also at some CTC's. Don't know whether it is Energy Conserving or not.

I thought it was too good to be true. Only $15 for 4 litres for Rotella Dyno. Think I read that Rotella T synthetic is about $4 a quart at Wally's world Stateside.

Klrman.............Kenworth would be a Kenworth truck center. Try for the oil at any major truck stop. As for when to change to synthetic oil......soonest.

Oh, thanks. I think there is one in Kelowna. I have around 2,500k so might
as well switch to synthetic now. I just found the Rotella in Vernon so got 16 litres as want to use
it in all my bikes. Only $6.90 a litre which is pretty good for 100% synthetic. Wal Mart USA sells
the stuff in Washington for $4.45 a quart so 6.90 up here is pretty good.
