Well thats what was confusing me, oils are far superior to what they once were but we are getting forced to change it more often?

So there would be no harm buying a 20lt drum and keeping it for future changes - Don't have to stick with smaller containers to keep it sealed until ready to use?

No problem at all, even with the old oils. 20L will give only two and a bit oil changes anyway.

208L Drum = $4287.69 works out to about $20.61/L
20L = $331.66 so about $16.58/L

One would have thought that the more you bought the cheaper it would have been?

Guess I will will be picking up a number of 5 Litre bottles up from Repco this time.

Re: CRD oil on special

That leaves me a little stumped...might give them a call in the next week or so and ask them what the trade price is.

If anybody is wondering, here is the ebay link to 10L of Mobil ESP 5W-30 for $138 + $16.80 postage - broken down means you're paying $15.48/L.

Comes in 10 x 1L bottles which probably works out better in terms of providing to dealership.

Mobil 1 Engine OIL ESP 5W30 10 Litres | eBay

Re: CRD oil on special

Hahahaha it surprised me too?

Basically asked them
Could you please tell me the price for your Mobil 1 ESP Formula 5W-30?
What size containers is it available in?
Do you have a minimum order size?
Is there discounts for larger orders?


Received a blank email with this pdf attached
I know it is Perth, but still not the best customer service or prices in town!

208L is the old 44 gallon drum. The drum itself costs about $20 and they are a beast to handle. This may account for part of the increased cost but still I would have thought it cheaper.

Re: CRD oil on special

Any body heard about new colors for the 2015 GC. Is that why you cannot order any color other than black , white , or silver until after Jan 1

Re: CRD oil on special

Not true, probably only colours they have coming in that are not sold or have in stock.

Find another dealership.

Re: CRD oil on special

It actually is true, certain colours are stopping production over the next two months.

There is a thread with the colour schedule around here somewhere.

Talk about going off topic, where did that come from to post into an oil thread?
See the MY15 thread for changes - 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

It's colour of the oil. Some people are so picky
