It still is £9.99 for fully synthetic.
This has been posted nearly every day for the last fortnight and it's the semi synthetic that is £7.99.
Title says fully synthetic
Where on the carton does it say semi synthetic?

This is it on their own brand website, so this is a bargain!

I don't care what it says on the bottle, I wouldn't put it in my lawn mower. Castrol Edge or Mobil 1 only for me

What! In that old thing? Don't you need 20-50 mineral oil?

If you read the shelf label in the photo it clearly states "P/SYNTHETIC", i.e. Part Synthetic. It may have just been stacked in the wrong place as my branch had both part synthetic at £7.99 and fully synthetic at £9.99 as paulandpam1 states above. (Unipart also list a part-synthetic 5w30 on their website)

What link above? I bought 10 Litres of the stuff 2 days ago and it's definitely Part Synthetic for £7.99.
I paid £9.99 for fully Synthetic they had 5w30 and 5w40 in fully and also Part synthetic.
My local Home Bargains is actually next door to the main UK headquarters and any offer items always appear there first.

This link stating the pros300 is fully synthetic?! No need for the attitude and aggression!!!

I wouldn’t put it in a lawn mower either.
I'm getting bored now. Anyway the sign in my pic shows ps300 not 200.

Nevertheless thank you for taking the trouble to go into your homebargains in attempt to prove whatever you're attempting to. I'm glad it means that much to you.

Either way, whatever it is its still a bargain. Sleep well.
Anyone comment to review this make (Unipart) any good?
Thanks for taking the time to post op. But the others are right, title is misleading as it's £9.99 for the full syn oil.
Does anyone know whether any of the 5W 30 variants are C3 compliant?

Aha the oil snobs are alive and well!

You can never be too snobby with oil. Seriously, tests have shown over and over again how important oil quality is to the longevity of your engine. Everyone is free to do as they wish though, but oil is the one area I never skimp on (and oil filters).

Yeah maybe so now particularly with those ecoboost start stop nonsense engines but for the majority of older cars it matters not a jot - Ive been building cars and repairing em for years and the cheapo oil is just as good as the expensivo stuff - although if i owned an AC Cobra original or Bugatti Veyron i would use the expensive stuff - there is a difference between the folks on here with their Fiestas and Corsas and folks like you with your Bentleys and Ferraris - lol

Kidding but you get the drift I am only going on my own personal experience i have owned loads of cars from crappy old Toyota Tercels to Open Mantas to my own self built Kit cars Dax Tojeiros and my Lotus and I have never paid over the odds for oil and all of my cars engines are in excellent condition!

My Rover 820si is 1987 still running on cheapo tyres and engine oil - never an issue with the engine even the old warped head problem hasnt raised its ugly head - most comfortable and reliable car ive ever driven!
Size?
Perfect if you have a Ford Cortina.

That's a fair point. I'm referring to high performance cars in my own experience in fairness. The thing is, friends and fellow mechanics have always thought me lucky to drive such powerful cars so hard, and for so long without ever having serious engine issues (apart from a Crank failure on an M3 after an incorrect part was fitted before my ownership) .

I've always used the best quality oils and filters on all my cars, and always serviced them well before schedule, always warmed up and cooled down (on turbo charged), and my cars have always eaten up the miles without issue. In comparison, the vast majority of cars I've worked on or serviced for people (and not just high performance cars) have had engine issues, or are showing signs of serious engine wear or damage. A few quid extra for oil I know I can rely on all year round, not to sludge up, or cause excess friction is money well spent for me.

The biggest problem for me, is you often don't how well a cheaper branded oil performs, as they aren't tested to the same levels as premium branded ones. A number of years ago, they tested a bunch of cheaper branded oils, and found many of the oils that 'claimed' to be fully synthetic, weren't actually fully synthetic at all. They had been made using fully synthetic properties, but were not exclusively synthetic as their labels suggest. There have even been car manufacturers (Saab specifically) who underestimated the requirements of their own engines for oil quality, which caused catastrophic engine failure because they lacked the anti-sludging properties necessary for the engineering. But yeah, just how I see things, we all have different experiences

I dont want to be nasty but you hardly ever see Bentley and Ferrari owners darkening the doors of B&M or Home Bargains , pouindland etc thats strictly for the Fiesta and Toyota Corolla owners lol so the oil doesnt matter a jot!

You must be the first posh nob i have ever met that shops in Home Bargains - mind you thats probably why you are minted and drive a HPSC.
Can’t find any in my home bargains or quality save. Dewsbury or Ravensthorpe.
Does anyone know if they have any in stock?

Never thought I'd see the day - a sensible comment about Rovers on HUKD... I never drove an 820 (just a Honda engined 827) but I don't recall the M-Series engine having a reputation for head warp... I may be wrong though. Personally reckon the 75/ZT were a better car, but there's no doubt the 800 was a very nice platform indeed for its day.

Much better to change oil often and the filter, than spend a bucket and let the car go for 10k. My old bxxtard thing gets an oil change every two to three months.

Agree 100%, that's been my attitude for years.. for the same price as a 12 monthly change with a major brand oil, I can change Asda own brand fully synthetic oil every 6 months. Even the swankiest oil gets full of carbon and contaminants after 6 months and nothing is going to turn carbon into a lubricant.

Ahh a fellow Rovie nice to meet you sir not many of us around - My old pal Graham hates Rovers especially the 800 series although if you watch his tv program set in Marbella there is always one parked outside his garage haha

Yes I think you are right it was the T-Series engine that had the head warp but quite easily the most comfortable car I have ever driven like sitting on my couch at home - shame the car handled like a whale on a skateboard but I love her she is my true love haha Rescued me from many a nasty situation where many other cars would have just died!

My car which was my dads was first owned by the Provost of Glasgow as his limousine lol
827 EH So you had the posh sporty one lol
BRG by any chance or metallic blue i think they only came in three colour lol

Most cars are lucky to ever see a vaguely measured oil top up, let alone receive the correct spec, length of interval, synthetic or semi, viscosity, low saps or normal saps. The brand is neither here nor there in the grand scheme of things. If most of us put a drop of the cheapest 10w40 semi synth in every 6 weeks that would be better than nothing.
A friend used to test oils at BP and only german engines failed ??
The rover 214 was dropped - it used to show no measurable wear after 35k miles !!
MG monty and maestro were my likes the 800 was a comfy old boat .

Does anyone skip alternate oil filter changes ?
