    To all,

    I have found a source outside of Ferrari NA for Shell Helix Ultra 5W-40 Synthetic oil. Thats the good news!! The bad news is that I can only get it in 50 gallon drum size. The good news is that I can buy it for a lot less than the equivalent of $15.00/liter that Ferrari wants. I would like to buy a drum and then offer to resell it to everyone who wants it. I would package it in one gallon and/or five gallon plastic containers and sell it for somewhere between $5.00 and $7.00 per quart. (Dependes on cost of containers.) plus shipping.

    This is real Shell Helix (My source is Shell itself!) and I would include full certs with each sale.

    I need an idea as to whether this would be of value to everyone at Ferrari chat. It would be a bit of a pain for me and I would not be making much, if any money on it but would allow me (and others) access to Shell Helix at Mobil One prices!

    Please give me your feedback!

    What is the true diffrence between the Shell Helix and Mobil One besides costs?? Does the Stradale require this type of oil?

    Shell sponsors Ferrari, thats why it is recommended for the new cars.
    When Agip sponsored Ferrari, it was the recommended oil for Ferrari.
    As often as I change oil, it matters not.

    I guess if a different cigarette company sponsored Ferrari,
    then owners who smoked would change from Marlboro to ____.
