Advance Auto using 919?

saw this display for Rotella at the local Advance Auto, did a double take when I saw the 919, complete with ATGATT rider minus gloves...

Hmmmmm, they are displaying Triple T, the 15W40 stuff (that is JASO marked)
How come not T6 5W40 at least beside it ?
I now have a supply of T6 in hand, and that's what's going in instead of prior Mobil 1
Oh no ..... oil jack ! oil jack ! oil jack !
I must stop myself NOW.

SO WIN!!! the 919 and rotella T are made for eachother....


tho loose, cus rotella t price has been slowly climbing (likely due to popularity)... they havnt changed a thing in years with it... yet the price for a gal of 15w 40 has gone up 2+ bucks... and oil is cheaper now than it was a couple of years ago.

all i use in my motos is the 15w40 stuff... it dont get cold nuff hear to worry bout it being too thick.

You have it, T6 is in the blue jug and it is a full synthetic.
I just got some at Auto Value in Calgary
It cost $ 38.77 per 5 litre jug before tax and enviro fee.
A litre is so close to a USA Quart it is not worth talking about the difference (anyone surprised to hear that coming from me?) so in USA terms it's about $ 7.75 per Quart after converting to your getting stronger currency.
What is it going for stateside ?

We Canadians sometimes pay a stiff premium to live where we live.

Walmart Canada lists the T6 5W40 but does not price it on the web, nor allow online purchasing. The availability is store dependent, and the one near us does not have it.

I have not see the T Triple Protection 15W40 anywhere yet, Canadian Tire is carrying some Triple P but not in 15W40, at least not in the CTC store near us.
Walmart Canada does not list it at all.

nd4sp is spot on price wise. been pretty consistent for the most part. just switched over to the t6 right before andrew arrived to my place and while i have noticed some difference in the feel/vibes, i noticed that the transmission now demands to be pre-loaded before shifting 1-3 in order for it to be silky smooth whereas with the t5 it was simple hit/miss.

Interesting observations.
My winter fill is going to be T6 and I'm coming off Mobil 1 4T 10W40.
I won't be able to tell until next year, as cool weather riding often masks things.
I have committed the above to memory.

I tried the T6 at my last oil change, and I've noticed the same thing. I'm happy to hear it's not just me!

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

Hmmm, very interesting.
We have T6 ready to go in my 919 and our son's street GSX-R600 (I use Motul 300v 5W40 in the race bike)

T6 can occasionally be found at O'reily's for about 16.00 bucks a gallon.

Been since last winter since they've run a sale, but I'm hoping they do so sometime soon as that's what I run in my Cummins.
