PQIA issues don't purchase for "Bullseye" oil

This is a small brand oil that's sold up north in convenience stores etc.. Specs are terrible..

Here's the link...

Isn't it illegal to false advertise ? - Why isn't the appropriate regulatory body pursuing this given that the results generated for this oil test go back to 2011 ?

I think they've been sued before. They simply move shop or put the oil under a different brand name. They also have it branded as triple xxx, everclear, liberty, and city star I believe. Their trans fluid is said to contain antifreeze and nuclear waste. They likely are using their oil as a cover up to look like a legitimate business while doing something else.

Sounds like China , putting their waste into new products and shipping it to the US for sale.
