Mobil 1 ESP 5w 30 5l - £36 @ Euro Car Parts £35.88

Tyranicus66Tyranicus66

So a few people will be thinking that £36 is expensive for some oil. This is just about the best oil you can buy and normal retails from between £42-£60. It meets just about every spec there is and you wont find it cheaper.

If you have a decent car you will know that oil is cheap, parts are not! And you will probably want to get the best oil you can. (And yes this is better than anything Castrol make including edge)

Use code Bigdeal31 to get this price. Hope someone find this useful.

    If your car has a 15,000 mile oil change requirement, then this oil will fulfill that requirement. If you car does not, then changing the oil at that mileage may well invalidate any warranty you may have.
    Extended oil interval change seems to be the main feature of the ESP range. So no point using it really if you car is still under warranty. Even Mobile themselves recommend not extending the manufacturers oil change frequency.

    I hate oils like this. Massively overpriced and really not that great at protecting your engine. Fuel economy is pants too. Do your wallet a favour and give your engine a treat and use GTX 10W40 instead.

    I work in a car shop, and i'm sorry, but you're INSANE to pay this price for oil, it's all exactly the same bloomin' stuff!

    We regularly laugh at people who walk in demanding that this kind of stuff is "the only" stuff they'll put in their cars! It's oil, it's not gonna make your car perform better, last longer, give you more miles to the gallon, etc. Buy some CarPlan, or some other make and spend the money on some Magic Trees instead!

    What's truly sad is that with these so-called low SAP oils, you are paying more for a less capable oil that does nothing to solve a problem that doesn't in reality exist. This is engineering that's gone absolutely bonkers!

    You obviously don't have a clue about modern engines and associated exhaust systems. Try driving a car fitted with a Diesel Particulate Filter and running it on anything but low ash content oil.....

    ...and? Please enlighten us mere plebs, what does happen? You being an expert have obviously run your DPF car on a normal ash oil. So what happened????

    Did a bit digging on the Mobil website. Here's the list of specs this oil notionally meets...

    http://www.mobil.co.uk/UK-English-LCW/carengineoils_products_mobil-1-esp-formula-5w30.aspx#

    Ash is 0.6%. HTHS is 3.58. Suspect the spec data on the Europart web page is wrong. This oil can't be A5/B5 and I doubt if it meets A3/B3/B4 either (TBN will be too low). Mobil themselves don't seem to be claiming these specs.

    If you are impressed by OEM luggage labels, this is probably for you but from my from my perspective, this oil is utterly pointless....

    Cartech on Ebay in Kinkardine Scotland does fully synthetic 20l 4x5l for £62 collection that is for 4 times 5l you are buying for Mobile.
    Even adding a tenner for delivery is more cost effective.This is ideal for Mercedes Benz Diesel Post 2008.Incidently I do not think change is always good use good engine flush cartech to get it running the best! It has increased in price 20% within a year.
