​This is £4+ per litre, when I've posted Castrol GTX for £3 per litre. So not a great deal really (although your offer is cheaper than Tesco Own brand stuff and perhaps good for people who don't have a local Tesco)

​your deal is semi synthetic, this is fully synthetic so not exactly a fair comparison.

i think for people who need this spec oil, its the cheapest one i found.

I've owned cars and bikes over 30yrs, I used car oil in bikes, bike oil in cars, petrol oil in diesels and diesel oil in petrol cars, I've mixed mineral, semi, fully without no issues what so ever, I've put 'wrong' grade in dozens of time because it was much cheaper to do so..... NEVER EVER EVER had an engine failure ;)... clean regular fresh oil (and filter) of almost any description is better than no or old oil ... At the moment I've standardised the same oil for all our vehicles, from an old transit to a new ka, (which for some bizarre reason specifies a PD oil !!), I have gallons of ECP Triple Q 5w40 fully synth which more often than not often floats around at 12 quid for 5 ltrs, so buy 2/3 when on offer ... the 'key' to engine longevity is to let the engine warm up before driving/riding harsh, not the oil you put in it

​just because its worked for you, doesn't mean it will work for everyone else. very dangerous statement to make.

why else would oils be marketed as different for specific applications if they all behave in the same way?

i'd still much rather use the oil recommended by the manufacturer of my car because at the end of the day, they know best.

Quite a few years ago when the Pumpe-Düse engines first came out there were quite a few minicab drives who started doing what you're doing - using just regular oil because it was cheaper. And like you they did a lot of mileage until one day the engine started sounding rough...

Long story short: fitting a new camshaft is a lot more expensive than saving a few quid on oil.
