Heat added. Oil is oil at the end of the day, and an engine is an engine. …Heat added. Oil is oil at the end of the day, and an engine is an engine. What’s the difference going to be between GM approved (AG) and Ford approved (AF) oil from the same manufacturer (Shell) if it’s the same 5W-30...I’ve bought it for my Ford Mondeo. Thanks OP.


If it's the right oil for your Mondeo then great but your oil is oil comment is total madness. Utter total madness! Just stick your registration in on Opie Oils or Eurocarparts website to get the correct spec or better still open your bonnet and read what it says on the oil cap.
The viscosity is not as important as the specification of the oil in many cases.
Modern cars are very picky.
Modern oils will often meet or exceed certain specifications so they will cover a few modern cars but also be suitable for many older cars.

Modern engines may well run ok for a few thousand miles on the wrong specification oil but in the long wrong it is not worth saving a few pennies on oil and causing serious damage to your engine by using the wrong specification.

During my years working at Mercedes, 2 vehicles were refused warranty claims on major engine failures due to the wrong oil being used. One was a £8000 bill, the other was £22000!

The comment about all oil being the same is nonsense, you wouldn't put vegetable oil in your engine and you wouldn't put petrol in a diesel car. The fluids that go into vehicles are important to get right.

If 5w 30 (more the 30) is the right spec for your car then this will be fine.
If you own a new car, and/or it's really expensive, you may want to get the exact manufacturer recommended oil.
GM use this spec for petrol and diesel.
you can check it HERE
the manufacturer recommends it for focus mk2 1.8 tdci. I bought one

Ideal for FORDS despite shell selling a AF (ford) version, this should be better spec.
Top man I paid £20 last time and I thought that was cheap.

Any good for a Trabant?
The euro car parts website shows only 5W30 Fully Synthetic AF oils for my toyota corolla verso vehicle. Does this mean that this AG oil is not compatible???

Really wouldn't rely on their finder to pick correct oil. It doesn't for my car's. Handbook is the best way.

Thanks. The rest of the information is matching. Just don't understand the importance of AF or AG.

And what about low saps oils for dpfs? What about semi and full synth? What if someone puts mineral oil in their engine with turbo?

No idea as they are probably specufic to shell at a guess.

I use the manufacturer spec in the handbook, for my car's it's PSA B71 2290. You should have a similar long number. If unsure, that's the safest bet.
Excellent oil, excellent price. What's not to like.

No... A lot of cars run on 5w30 and you can run them on other grades and they can be fine... But best to get the right oil for the right car and it will void any warranty you might have on the car

I'll have a look, thanks. I think it should be fine though. I've seen garages and owners of vehicles, dump literally any oil in their car without checking the specs and they still work fine.

Just read on an old version of this post. This oil has the same specs as some top brands but if you have a modern ford or Mazda it should be the af version I think. Don't know why or the guys credibility but sounds fair
this is low saps oil. be warned.

This was the chart provided in my manual, so the car can run on a range of oils. Bought some for my Hyundai! Same oil that they use in the services.
Always best to use ultra professional oils in your car engine.

Too many motorists suffer breakdowns and expense because they use lubricants from their own amateur oil refineries in their back gardens or sheds.
Good for the car and ride on mower too.

Sure it happens, but you and they can't possibly know what is happening inside. An engine is designed to run for huge mileage. It may seem fine now, what in 100k miles?

Of course you may have sold it on by then, but someone else later gets turbo failure, dpf blocked, excessive consumption and wear etc.

Oil is cheap, engines aren't
