Where do you buy yor Castrol 10w-60?

It looks like Tischer has 10w-60 for $9.75 per qrt and filter for $14.50 (both around there, can't remember exact prices), no tax, but they are saying shipping charge will be determined after you place your order. Shipping 18qrts and 2 filters may not be cheap, so I'd like to know before ordering.

Or is there any cheaper site you guys use?

Have you tried using the shipping calculator on their website?

yup.. that's why i'm posting this.
1liter is roughly 2lbs from googling. (couldn't find quart to pound conversion).
so 18 cases = 36lbs and filters and packaging.
i estimated 40lbs and it came out to be about $50.
so i was wondering if there's any other sites forum people use..

Actually never mind. I talked with Jason from Tischer and he told me if I get their OEM oil change kit, shipping is free!
Problem solved!
Happy weekend, guys..

Just FYI, to help you out with your conversion. You shouldn't ever find a direct Qt --> Lb conversion, as one is a measure of volume, and the other is a measure of mass. What you would have to do is to get the density of the oil (or chemical formula, to calculate molecular and molar mass), make it a function of the measurement that the oil comes in (Qt.), and do some algebra.

Send a message via AIM to asp17
or instead of the Math maybe someone can take a qt of oil and put it on a scale.. Stop by the market, in the produce aisle!

Qt= volume= ml

Weight= mass*g = lbs
