Whoever has the cheapest contract at the time of renewal, made to their specs of course.

The lowest bidder.

Citgo oil last I heard, which means your money is going to Hugo Chavez.....

Sunoco was the supplier before Citgo got the contract. I haven't seen a MSDS in a few years so who knows right now.

From what I undersand, Harley Elves make it at the North Pole, also known as Santa's Elves. The reason HD oil is in shorter supply from Oct-Dec is because the elves are focused on toys for good little girls and boys.

Just buy Mobil 1 or Amsoil. That way you know what you're getting.

Once upon a time Kendall made HD oil. Haven't used HD oil for a few years, been sticking with Kendall GT-1, or Valvoline racing oil.
