Whats the car got to do with the price you want to pay ?
I did notice the RAC branded ones too but they were only semi synthetic.
I avoided them, I just don't trust the branding, it's a bit like that awful Halfords branded oil. Worst oil I have ever used.

Asda branded oil is surprisingly good, so I'm hoping this carlube stuff is at least ok.
Just saying that I don't think anybody with a nice motor would put £1 oil in it, just opinion, could be wrong I suppose.

It was £3,would it make any difference then ?
It's £1 as they are probably stopping selling it. I know the 4litre ones were £16 for fully synthetic. Down to £5 if you managed to get some.
RAC 5litre ones are £5 too. Think I saw them about £20odd before they got reduced to £17 a few weeks ago.

Looking at the spec it meets VW502,505 which is the normal fully synthetic. For cars with DPFs you are recommended to use low-ash VW504,507. Just so everyone is aware

What measures do you use to assess these oils?
It will give a minimum standard in your vehicle owners manual e.g. BMW LL04, or VW504. These are the specific manufacturer recommendations, if the spec isn't there it doesn't meet the requirements of your vehicle. However to just top-up it does say you can use a small amount of non-confirming oil

The question isn't whether he has any proof that this oil is only suitable for basic cars, it's do you have any proof this cheap oil is suitable for non-basic cars such as higher performance/sports cars? Oil quality and interval is 'the most important' aspect of car maintenance. Oils like Castrol Edge, Mobil 1, Shell Helix etc, have been scientifically proven to offer far superior protection against slugging to lesser branded oils. If you want to take the risk putting this in your pride and joy without knowing if this will be good enough to protect your car from engine failure, then go right ahead. But as someone who's worked in the industry for 20 years, I'd say his point is valid.

The other side of the coin,what is a classed as a basic car ? are we talking a 15 year old ford fiesta ?

Its easy enough to look online or check in your handbook to see what viscosity and requirements are for your vehicle.

Yes some high end cars require specific oil to meet requirements.

But the original quote of I wouldn't put this £1 oil in my car may stand if he has a Bugatti or similar may stand.

but as mentioned,the statement is false saying its only £1 not putting it in my car.

that statement does not put into question the quality of the oil,but being a bargain price it seems like if its this price he is questioning the quality of the oil !

as somebody mentioned its £10 a litre somewhere,but again price does not mean its correct for even a basic car as the viscosity could be wrong.

His point is invalid,he could not explain why he would not use it.

I hear you. I think there's too much of a gray are with motor oil personally. The use of the term 'fully' and 'semi' is another one that has been questioned with cheaper branded oils. Apparently many of these oils are made in part from fully synthetic oil, and advertised as fully synthetic etc. But I see your point regarding his post.
I am using it in my air compressor , garage cummel and my garage ramps and it works a treat!
Its in my Rover 820si, Ford Streetka, and my Lotus Excel Eclat and even my Kit car Dutton Phaeton S3 (1600 Xflow), Ford Fiesta MK 7 and all my other cars and I've never had any bother so go figure!

If I had a Ferrari or a Buggati Veron I might think twice but for all intents and purposes oil is oil.

Been using it for years it the biggest oil manufacturer in the UK.
Is that national deal?
pasgun6th Mar

LMAO why would you put £1 oil in a car.



You could pay £15, which is how much this sells for elsewhere, if that makes you feel any better.
