Default Quick Question

I have been looking for German Castrol 0w-30. Called around to Autozone and they have no idea what i am talking about. Is there a different name i should be asking for, does anyone have a product number so i can get my search on.

Thanks
teddy

I've picked it up at AutoZone in both California and New Mexico. Like the post above says: leave out the german part.
Just ask if they have 0w30 Castrol and then you get there make sure it says "imported from germany" on the back. Good stuff.

A few months back I asked our AZ if they had any German Castrol yet. The guy behind the counter said, what? I looked and found they did in fact have it. I showed him the container and his answer was HUH? You may not want to ask, but check your self. RP

yeah its best not to ask...just breeze past them and head to the oil section and look for 0w30 castrol and make sure it says germany on the back.

when they had been out of it for a while and finally had some again i went up to the front all excited and with several cases of it saying see made in germany and they looked at me like i was some freak.

think of it this way...if everyone in the store has no idea what it is and if they have it or not it just leaves more for you
