    I would urge people not to vote on this as an engine oil, rather as a lubricant for the hinges on garden gates etc. Looked at in that fashion and compared to the likes of 3-in-1 it's a pretty good price:thumbsup:

    I'd be very wary of putting this stuff in my car. Ok if you run a banger but other than that no thanks. Still a good price though.

    I would never put that stuff into my new AUDI R8! It's more like expensive cooking oil than engine oil!

    I work in a garage that deals specifically with SAAB we quite often fix the results of people who don't want to pay for quality oil and put cheap supermarket stuff in instead of something specifically for their car.

    A new turbo on a SAAB is £700-800 quid including fitting, a replacement engine is about £2000-£3000 sometimes we have to do both as when the turbo lets go it chucks all the oil out of the exhaust which then causes damage to the engine at the same time.

    The proper SAAB turbo oil costs £50 and is a much bigger saving in the long term, we very rarely have to replace engines or turbochargers on cars we service just the ones that people have taken elsewhere to save a few quid on servicing in the first place. I'd personally avoid supermarket oil like this if you own any kind of performance car, I've no idea what it would be like for smaller low performance cars but given the correct oils for them don't cost much more than £20 in the first place buying stuff like this is a real false economy in my opinion.

    And it's pretty well known that SAAB engines are fussy as **** when it comes to servicing. A SAAB with no FSH = scrap value :lol:

    Well, same can be said for all cars, I'd not buy *any* turbocharged or high performance car that didn't have either a full main dealer history or main dealer and independent with a good reputation for using the right stuff. Would you buy a quick car that you knew had Tesco Supergrade put in it at every service?

    The main reason that SAAB engines are known to be fussy/have a bad rep is many of them are purchased by people who think they are rich but they can't afford a BMW or Merc so go for something that bit cheaper. These people then get them serviced by the local garage as they can't afford the main dealer or independents rates and so Tesco Supergrade Engine Oil gets put in as it's cheap ;-) with expensive consequences. The older SAAB engines were bomb proof, it's more the new ones that suffer from oil starvation that give problems and they are the ones that need the real thing put in them.

    Its a good price for a bog standard oil - hes not saying its a great oil, or that it compares to a performance fully synthetic oil - its a multigrade thats it.

    oh and ive got a Lambo and I wouldnt put it that - but thats not the point is it:whistling:

    That's funny, i'm sure the description says suitable for turbo charged....

    For gods sake people......

    It's a basic engine oil for a basic / cheap price to be used in a basic car :roll:

    If you can afford a merc, bentley or lambo then take it to be main dealer serviced, we can't have you knowing whats under the bonnet or getting your hands dirty when you have ' A man' to do it for you.

    If your that bothered put it in the lawn mower or kids motorbike

    nuff said.............good for the price

    ive got an old 1971 fiat 500, and i wouldnt put it in that.

    old cars used mineral oils, so be careful putting it in "old bangers"

    So what do you define as a basic car?

    Semisyn and fully syn are perfectly acceptable for use in old cars. It's the spec/grade, not what it's made of that's important. Fair do's though, this probably wouldn't be for you, a 20/50 would probably be better to take up the slack in your worn out engine:giggle:

    Probably a car with equivalant usage to the above ^^^^ :-D, i.e: a run around...maybe even a worn out turbo charged chav mobile, blue smoke pouring out whilst accelerating / gear changes / deccelerating.

    This + a bottle of slick 50 = another year on tut road :)

    This oil will be manufactured to British Standards, perfectly fine for using in any car as long as it's the correct grade specified in your manual. Oil is Oil, manufacturer does not neccesarily matter as all engine oils are manufactured to BS and ISO standards that relate to each specific engine grade. Some oil's may have additional characteristics over and above the standard, which you would pay a premium for.

    You believe that and i'll see you in the garage in a years time, I'm not bothered as what we don't make on servicing we make up for and more on repairs :whistling:

    i have an old escort i bought 3 years ago ive not changed the oil in that time whats the point?
    seanjames
    in other words if its an old banger changing the oil is a waste of time

    the description is from the tesco website, im not claiming this to be anywhere near as good as say castrol but for the price it is still good oil, i use it because i need regular top ups on my not so new 106 which has a slow oil leak, and its unlikely to do any harm to your engine, theres little or no difference between this and the cheaper oil from halfords.

    The oil is manufactured to a BS and an ISO meaning it meets the minimum requirements of car manufacturers, there is absoulutley nothing wrong with this oil, period. Oil is Oil, aside from cars that require specialist grades I would reccomend this to anyone.

    Even though I stand by my first post about gate hinges, I agree with what you are saying as I buy unbranded oil for my car (made by Comma) and i've never had any problems enginewise whatsoever AND the cars over 15 years old. The problem with this oil though is that not many manufacturers actually recommend 10/40 as first choice. Hell even old corsas run on 0/40 and you don't get a much more basic shopping trolley than that :lol:
