Default Any Kelowna members?

Hey Guys,

I'm going to need an oil change on a road trip to Kelowna soon. Can anyone suggest a trusted garage, guru, or just let me use your fluid extractor? If it's a garage I would need to bring my own oil since I use TDT, i'm sure nobody would stock it.

I do my own oil changes using a pela but I can't haul it out there unfourtantely.

Thanks!

It's only 4000 km on the Trans-Canada highway, why not just change it when you get back? FWIW, I got my best UOA ever with a 30k km/1 year OCI.

Bring a bottle of TDT for top-ups but highway miles are some of the easiest on the engine.

Thanks for the suggestion but that won't work. I'm staying there for a year. I'm going from Toronto to Kelowna via Florida (don't ask) so i'll need to change it in Kelowna.

A simple 3 hour drive to Abbotsford from Kelowna and you're at JS Performance. Another hour further and you're in Vancouver where a number of other trusted shops are located!

That's quite a detour. No wonder you'll need an oil change in Kelowna.

If you swing through Chicago en route to Albuquerque and need anything for the car, stop on by.

I'm in Kelowna, you can use my Pela pump. There is also a good shop in town; Europro Autohaus. When do you get here?
