I'm sure this stuff will do it's job, but for about £10 more you can get 5L of shell helix ultra or 4L castrol edge.

Compared to the amount you'll spend on fuel ⛽ every 10,000miles an extra £10 is nothing to get the best.

I've had the Helix Ultra from Eurocarparts for only a few pounds more than this in the past, with one of their never-ending discount codes in their never-ending sale. That was a few years ago though. No idea if it's really that much better than this for most cars, but it seems well-regarded.

Yea to be fair i haven't tried this stuff. I got my last car (a Mazda 6 2.0 petrol) used 77k miles and after the first oil change to shell helix ultra af (with a mann oil filter) it ran SO much smoother both at 1k rpm and higher at 4/5k rpm. That's all i can really say.

This oil might be great
It's all to do with the letters and numbers on the back and the weasel words such as "meets" or "equivalent to " , "surpasses" being preferred in relation to the specs. Don't forget some cars also need low ash C ratings.
Brit oil, is it on sale because of Brexit?
The secret of a long lived engine is frequent oil changes with the best (and correct) oil. Second best for pence less is just not a good idea in the long run.

100% true in my experience. I usually get shot down by people for saying such things though. A lot of people argue that oil is oil, but these types of people couldn't be further from the truth.

If you spend £50 on decent oil once a year for a 6000 mile or yearly change it's only £1 per week.
Well it's fully synthetic so won't be too bad. Would probably be overkill for non turbo applications. Appears to be missing key info on specs though, not sure I'd use it (when you can get decent fully synth meeting all the necessary specs for c£25- paying £50 for oil is for the birds, you're paying dealer prices there).
I mentioned the £50 as there are still un informed people who pay top dollar at Halfrauds. As mentioned earlier Eurocarparts or carparts4less on a " special " code for quality makes with decent specifications.
Interesting that the label claims ACEA A1 B1 and WSS-M2C913-B.
It must be a mighty good oil to claim both Lubrizol and at such a great price
Briskoda.net have a few interesting comments about this oil namely the company ceased trading a few years ago,supposedly W Yorkshire and the specification seems very vague, only good for lawnmowers was one comment.
Looks like the oil is also dispatched and sold directly by Amazon and third party sellers with good reviews, so maybe it's not too bad
Standard price from these guys.
Ordered it and got delivered a different brand but a MUCH better spec.
Ordered it for the wife's car, instead I'll put it in mine !
