No information available on the tub about which standards it meets.

Perfect for old bangers

Says on the bottle for 4 stroke petrol cars only. Also suitable for flushing engines....

Check you cars required oil specs before you use this... most newer cars want less viscous oil than this.

For old high mileage petrol cars, this is perfect, as it's much more important to change the oil regularly rather than worry about viscosity etc.... Also thicker oil can help with worn engines.

Not sure if it's in all stores or just Govan. Go nuts.

Hmmm i wouldnt put it in my lawn mower. But thats me.

suppose if you have a 20 year old car with over 150k miles it wil do

20w 50, must be like treacle!

Ideal for flushing out an engine.

just incase people are not sure this is mineral oil, no synthetic

20/50 thats must be mank
wouldnt let that near my car

Some late 80's and early 90's cars are specified with 20w50.
Much more of a concern is the lack of any standard rating (as stated by vyseyboy).
I'd look for a rated oil rated to at least a base ACEA spec - any rating is better than none.
This is a great site for those looking to find out (argue?) about oil quality.

Racing what, lawnmowers? I doubt if any one in there right mind would put this s#1t in thier highly tunned race engine!!!

Not everyone who races races with highly tuned engines...

Whole heartedley accept that this oil is only suitable for car's of a certain type and vintage, but I honestly don't think it's bad stuff, so long as you renew it every six months or so and don't let it sit there for years, gradually becoming gelatinous grinding paste.

Not smartprice maybe but 20/50 most possibly as it will give a better piston ring seal under heavy loading than the normal 0/30 or whatever. As for lawnmowers, this isn't suitable :lol:

Edit: A quick google brought up this product (I was actually looking for F1 oil...)

Applying the advanced oil technology developed for auto racing by the Nippon Oil Corporation, this motor oil has an ultra wide 0W-50 viscosity range, so it provides outstanding performance from the very coldest to the very highest temperatures. ENEOS Motor Oil 0W50 is especially suited for sports cars with large engine displacements and high outputs.



Obviously you can't compare them quality wise but it seems that most of the ignorance about oils relates to the viscosity with the thought being that thinner is better.

I just paid over £50 for 4litres of Mobil One; my car will be the bankruptcy of me.

yeah dude

No matter how bad your car is, I just don't see how anyone could put "Smart Price " oil into their cars engine. Have a bit of respect for your car people!! Smart Price tissues or cake maybe, but car oil? With no rating.....terrible.

That does seem mighty expensive. I am guessing that price was for a full oil change including filter and labour costs? And it is something like 0w-30? At least you are safe in the knowledge that you have very good oil running through your engine!

was half price at £2.12 a few months back .

Was hot at that price, but received equaly scathing comments, Mud and sexual lube spring to mind.

I was under the impression that the first number is when the oild is up to temperature and the second when it is cold. Your 0 wt 50 oil is very thin at temperature so as to reduce frictional losses within the oil.

Kind of the right idea, but totally wrong! :-D

The first number is the "weight" of the oil when cold, the second when warm.

e.g. in this case, the oil will be very thin when cold to enable easy start up, as well as being able to be pumped quickly to all the important points of the engine. When hot, oil tends to naturally become less viscous (ever noticed how your olive oil moves more freely around the frying pan once it has warmed up?). With multi grade oil, this effect is minimised by the oil acting as though it were a heavier "weight" when warm.

Oh well, it's well on it's way to absolute zero. Strangely enough, in my local Lidl, there was 5l bottles of 15w40 oil of a brand that I've never heard of (started with "W," red and black bottles,) mineral, suitable for petrol and diesel, for £6, which is very much hotter, by all accounts.

Had a list of all the standards it exceeds, including various ACEA's...

So whereas I didn't buy my original smartprice deal, I did buy the Lidl stuff for my 106 diesel
