i used to buy my oil from Walmart in Saskatoon, and noticed they down sized the pail to 18.? liters instead of the 20 liters, that they insultingly call a 5 gallon pail. when i called the employee on it, He told me that it is now a true 5 gallon pail, i told him flat out this is Canada not America we have a 4.54 liter gallon.
Ah, the great Canadian packaging piss off!
Corporations praying on YOUR desire to cling to an archaic measuring system for for profit, what a surprise.
You want to sneek in a price increase on windshield washer fliuld?
No sweat, reduce package size 4.0 liters to 3.78, a 5.6% change call it a gallon, nobody notices.
Reduce oil from 20 liters to 18.92, call it 5 gallons, presto, 5.8% price increase basically goes unnoticed because they call it 5 gallons which seems to make most people happy.
**** gallons, American or otherwise, give me 1/5/10/20 liter container sizes.
Your a Canadian.
Use to your advantage.
Every time UFA ***** around with packaging sizes they hear from me.
As they are are just a reseller their power is fairly limited against the generally American corporations they purchase from, but I feel better after anyway.
Smallest change ever?
