    Bye California, it's been nice.

    Best wishes to you and Dee on your relocation up to Oregon. I appreciated the fine work you performed on my TDI back during the "golden" days of the San Pablo GTG's. Go Ducks/Beavers! Mark

    Delvac 1 Rebate $12 per gallon

    I just used the code today (9-27-15) and got the 35% discount at Pepboys. Including tax, $98.68 for 5 gallons of the Mobil Delvac 1 ESP 5W-40 here in Northern California. $98.68 - $60 ($12 x 5) rebate = $38.68 / 5 = $7.74 a gallon / 4 = $1.94 a quart!...Not too shabby...:cool:
