What's the difference between Vauxhall and BMW specification? As this seems significantly cheaper than what I usually buy

Is this fully synthetic?

None, if it meets their specification as to SAE and API etc it will be fine. Handbook lists both oil makers and exact specification needed which can be checked on the can, will often say meets "Vauxhall API7 or BMW LL1 etc.

I use this for my mams Suzuki Swift every year, its actually due a service and MOT next month so might as well buy it early while its cheap

The price went up to £28.99 while I was on the page and had added one to the basket,

it meets specs for engines dpf. micksgarage.com/blo…il/ that was a handy guide for me.


I used Shell Helix in my 1.7 cdti astra when i last serviced it and it has been great, i paid £27 for 5 litres from local store so £17 is a great price, it is good oil.


the only higher rated oils i could find suitable at the time was Mobil 1 and another brand but they were 3 x the price for the amount an engine needs.

Good oil in my mums xsara picasso 2.0hdi, it runs smooth and hasnt used any. Though i prefer 5w40 myself for the extra thickness

wish they had the 5w40 on offer too! Voted hot!

Well Shell recommends Helix Ultra Professional AJ-L 0W-30 (a) but has this as an alternative.

Great oil , remains clean for a long period , heat

The code works for shell 5w40 making it £23.09 not bad price, still a good deal

Any idea what goes in my 2.0 diesel alfa giulietta?

Works for my Skoda TDi. Shell Helix Ultra ECT (C2/C3) Engine Oil - 0W-30 - 5lt. From £62 to £38

5w-30 ACEA C2 grade oil, The same is recommended for my 1.9jtdm 159, however I use the vauxhall dexos 2 spec 5w-30 C3 (ie the one in this post) oil seeing as it is the same engine/turbo and considerably cheaper. They are both DPF compatible however the C2 is designed for improved mpg. Can't say I ever noticed any change from using a C2 oil over C3.

my BMW takes 6L at each oil change (also now need to get some of the same for my daugters mini)- I have been waiting for a good deal to come up, but this is not it for me as it does not meet the LL-04 spec! - good deal if it fit's your car

I've got this in my Beemer, no hassles whatsoever

Heat added , just ordered 160 quids worth for 93 quid . 5 litres of Mobil 1 for 38 quid . Good stuff

I usually buy the genuine GM 5 litre Dexos 2 from ebay for £22ish. This looks a bargain but im a sucker for the genuine stuff.

its not just this oil - there is loads with discount when you use the code that will meet the LL-04 spec - there is mobil 1, gulf, shell, petronas, castrol... they're all discounted with the code. dont let a bargain slip away! haha

Can I used this on my Toyota Yaris 1.0

Awesome oil.I always mix 50-50 Shell with Castrol,works as a treat.

Don't listen to the armchair experts. You MUST get the correct manufacturer approved specification for engine oil. Oils have many different characteristics and additives and you WILL damage your engine and or particulate filter with prolonged use of the wrong stuff. Use a recommended oil selector, such as the following: Shell LubeMatch

Thanks OP. Have used this oil in the past for my Hyundai ix35 1.7 diesel. Service due next month, and I need 5.4 litres.... so may order 10 litres worth. Considering main dealers charge around £80 to use their supplied oil - this is a great way to save money. :-)

nice one ...txh got 3 now for 52 £

Try searching Ebay for a service kit for your car before buying from these.
A full service kit for my Mondeo diesel is under £35 delivered on Ebay - it includes 6 litres of 5w30 ford spec fully synth oil , oil filter, air filter and fuel filter. Eurocarparts worked out at nearly double that price ( with the discount code ).

Not entirely true... GM doesn't recommend Shell Helix in my diesel astra ... but it has every characteristic is needs down to the ash contents and it has ran better than it has with GM dexus2, Catrol & Triple QX.

If you know anything (in general, not you personally :D) about oil then its not rocket science, most brands do produce something for everyone.

I do understand your point though, don't just start throwing anything in.
