Motor Oil

OK so my usual sources for getting Motor Oil from over the German border have all dried up, as the online auto parts stores have apparently gotten a visit from the Swiss mafia and closed shop. That includes ordering through Amazon. Now the only option is to make an order of $350 to avoid unreasonable shipping fees which will undoubtedly trigger the VAT charges. And with the current COVID19 situation, driving to Weil am Rhein isn't an option.

But my car needs oil.

I'm searching for 6L of 5w30 Magnatec Professional or Ford Formula F grade wss-m2c913-d. I used to be able to get it for between 40-50Fr. Here on our lovely Swiss island it's at least twice that. No justification for such highway robbery.

Any tips, leads or notions?
