Formula 1 Synthetic Oil

Canadian drivers have trusted Motomaster products to keep their vehicle on the road since 1933. Motomaster Formula 1 synthetic oil is 100% synthetic, made in Canada and specifically designed to protect your engine against the severe driving conditions Canadians experience on a regular basis.


  • Outperforms all conventional and synthetic blend motor oils in providing consistent protection against engine wear.
  • Designed to resist vaporization and thermal breakdown at extreme high temperatures.
  • Low viscosity characteristics virtually eliminate friction during cold weather winter start ups by reaching and protecting critical moving engine parts faster than conventional oils.
  • Superior cleaning additives remove stubborn deposits to maintain optimal engine performance

Motomaster Formula 1 was the first private label brand to meet and exceed the ILSAC GF-5 Resource Conserving performance standard. It meets all North American warranty requirements for U.S., European and Japanese cars and light trucks with gasoline engines where API SN and earlier API categories are specified across all grades. Available exclusively at Canadian Tire in 5W-30, 10W-30, 5W-20 and 5W-50 grades (946 mL size only).

Pennzoil’s most technologicallyadvanced full synthetic oil, Pennzoil Ultra, uses Hyper Cleansing Technology, which far exceeds the toughest standards for engine cleanliness to help keep a vehicle’s engine as close to the way it was the day it left the factory. Pennzoil Ultra helps keep pistons up to 65% cleaner than the toughest industry standards* and no oil – not even Mobil 1 – keeps an engine closer to factory clean than Pennzoil Ultra. (*Based on Sequence IIIG sludge test using SAE 5W-30.)

Quaker State


New Quaker State Defy contains a proprietary “zinc-booster” contributing to wear and oxidation control that prevents up to 98% of future wear. Defy is intended to provide enthusiasts with quality oil that will offer the protection and performance required in high-output, flat-tappet engines. The low-volatility ZDDP technology reduces the amount of volatile phosphorus while retaining its anti-wear protective behavior and antioxidant performance. Defy has a ZDDP composition of 1,200 ppm to stand up to the most aggressive engine profiles.

Red Line Synthetic Oil

5W-50 Motor Oil

Red Line’s 5W-50 fully-synthetic ester formula provides excellent wear protection and friction reduction across a wide range of operating conditions for passenger cars, light trucks, performance vehicles and marine applications. High detergency allows extended drain intervals and provides increased cleanliness, improved fuel economy and better ring seal for more power. Compared to other synthetics, superior high-temperature stability and oxidation resistance increases lubrication of hot metal while a high natural viscosity index provides thicker oil film in bearings and cams with less evaporation.
