I'd agree that the complexity of real-life conditions makes measuring oil-related fuel economy improvements tricky. Instead, the industry uses lab based, fired engine tests to measure fuel economy & fuel economy retention. Under such controlled conditions, you can compare oils reasonably accurately. I'd agree with you that oils of the same viscosity grade & spec tend to give you identical fuel economy. Shell or Mobil will be no different to Tesco own-brand. Dont be suckered in by fancy talk of friction modification. Other than Moly at very high (and eye-wateringly expensive!) concentrations, I never found an FM that worked consistently. However low viscosity oils, all things being equal, DO work. I use 0W20 in my car. I once did a long motorway trip & measured 76.8 mpg. For a simple, non-hybrid, petrol powered car, that is quite exceptional! Just so that it's clear, in the UK, you don't need the '0W' in the same way Canada or Finland does because it never gets that cold here. However that 0W rating means the oil is relatively thin when you start-up & throughout the warm up phase. That's where you'll accrue a good chunk of any fuel economy credit. In the US, 0W16 is already displacing 0W20 & 0W8 is fast coming down the track. I know some folks are highly resistant to the change but thin oils are here to stay.


Thanks for your expert advice


dont matter what you put in that, the engine will blow up sooner rather than later.


Unless you got a brand new car with a fancy engine this stuff is good enough for most modern cars.


Independent scientific testing disagrees with you. 10 minutes with Google will turn up many many results but you sound like you've made your mind up already so it's not worth the effort. I'm not sure if you are ignorant or just stubborn and like conspiracy theories.

anyone know if you get 2 weeks for retest / free retest ? In the past I have been told various things from various MOT shops like - no free retest / limited miles allowed before retest / limited time before retest ! it's a bargain price as I have 3 cars to MOT


Cant fail it on an empty windscreen tank,but could on washers not effectively hitting the screen/or not working,then I guess they would fill the Bottle and pass straight away ?


Pity though if it fails for something simple, like an empty windscreen washer tank


BEWARE, always make sure they do understand in advance you got your own way to make any repairs sould they by chance find any.

Castrol GTX 10W 40 Oil - £3 Instore @ Tesco

Get dealGet deal

Their high ZDDP products would be unnecessary in my nineties engines I'd say, I'll maybe try Castrol oils again in future for my boosted cars; the Edge Ti I put in her 1.2L Micra after a flush (controversial?) has made it feel as great as a 1.2L non turbo can XD


Sorry I've not got a Doctorate in Advanced Lubricant Technology. Try going back to bed and getting out again this time on the right side


If you had been paying attention, you would have read that virtually nothing that goes into engine oil is actually manufactured here. It's the same for your TV, your phone, your laptop, your kitchen appliances & endless other stuff. Having said that, the two biggest GLOBAL (note that word!) suppliers of engine oil, Shell & Castrol, have a strong connection to the UK, make pots of money & pay UK taxes. And they manage to do this without making stuff in this insignificant, manufacturing pygmy of an island. I'm sorry if this doesn't accord to your revolutionary, post-truth, narrow minded political world view but it's how it is. Get over it & stop holding the rest of us back!


Is this oil UK produced ?


Amsoil are really well known in the US. If I remember correctly, it was founded in the '60s by a USAF pilot who decided to put military grade aircraft lubricant oil in his automobile. Unsurprisingly, the PAO-based oil was infinitely better than the really grotty mineral oils that were the norm back then (especially in their nut-numbing winters). Whilst Amsoil were the first to actually do it, it was Mobil (with Mobil 1) who capitalised on the full synthetic idea & grew the market. I never had any direct dealings with Amsoil but this is what I've gleaned over the years. They're primarily a small, niche blender which buys in its raw materials & tech. Their products aren't necessarily 'approved' in the way most lubes are. For example they have oils that contain high levels of ZDDP which fall foul of the ILSAC/API specs. However their retail advertising presence in the US is HUGE relative to their minnow status! Just look at what they do on YouTube. Are their oils any good? Yes. Would they do any harm? Probably not but with unapproved products, you never can tell. Would I believe the hype? Absolutely not! Would I buy an Amsoil oil? At those prices?? Never in a million years!

Not necessarily true and proven !


Before we stop selling stuff altogether ...............


Standard price from these guys. Ordered it and got delivered a different brand but a MUCH better spec. Ordered it for the wife's car, instead I'll put it in mine !


Looks like the oil is also dispatched and sold directly by Amazon and third party sellers with good reviews, so maybe it's not too bad :)

trannyboy have a few interesting comments about this oil namely the company ceased trading a few years ago,supposedly W Yorkshire and the specification seems very vague, only good for lawnmowers was one comment.

Not much. Best to totally change oil in car.


If you're currently running on half a tank of generic oil from your local garage and you chuck this stuff in on top of it, how good a performance are you getting out of it when you're technically diluting it?


Great price


Thanks OP, car due for sevice


Way better about as good as oil you can buy. Recommended it to various mates with Audi/vw diesel engines. Immediately you could hear the engine become cheaper

Only 45p at motorway....Ive seen a couple of tanks but always assumed it would be a rip off, Ive always had the 10litre from halfords for 10-12 quid so would have bought this if hadnt seen your suggestion - it is cheap for 2*10litre bottles for sure


18 month self life at best and no telling how old it is now


Thanks for the tip. To be fair I normally use a local smaller petrol station and don’t visit larger ones anymore. That said I’ll be sure to pop my head in when I pass a local one next time.


You need to look by the HGV pumps. A lot of stations with dedicated HGV pumps have them, I've never seen at just a standard station. This is because many trucks have been using adblue for over10 years while it is still relatively new in cars.


Good to know. These are perfect for those who are happy to fill at home Never seen a tank at a fuel station myself but will certainly keep an eye out going forward.

Dont use the one in Cheshire oaks. I set it to 32 and when I took the nozzle off it displayed 38... went home to check with the meter it was showing 37!!!! Not calibrated correctly or needs sorting out.

Beads well too (y) 🏼


Yep . Jet wash with water then 50/50 polar wash in the little white bottle. Hand mit all over . Jet wash to rinse , them one cap of polar seal ... microfibres dry only polar seal once a month. Works great. The only thing I got was an extension hose for the pressure washer which makes things easier. I’m sure a snow foam would be good but that little white bottle does me fine (y) 🏼.


Do you use the attached foam thing? The small one?


Hi. I’ve got the same set up , works a treat


As mentioned above, this is a good price. But do research and consider the Bilt Hamber Autofoam. Its brilliant. It also works really really well as a touchless wash... my car was filthy over the summer and I gave it a going over with BH Autofoam with snow foam lance the results were great and I didnt have time to follow up with a handwash but it was still very clean. Can also be used as effectively if not moreso, with a pump spray. Using with a pump spray it also lasts much longer! Full breakdown here:

Had this in my Fiat 500L Multijet 1.3 CF5 (C2) grade with Castrol and surprisingly they removed the Fiat specification in March 2019 and my engine has been working considerably louder with this. Initially for the first 8 months it is like stock, but during the winter I have never heard this engine knock so loud. I immediately moved to liqui moly and it's running much smoother - oh and it's a fuel economy oil and I have noticed better mpg in town, a lot better. This oil is crap but that's just my opinion on a fiat (annoyed) Probably the reason why they removed the spec. P.S. it's always been £23 in Asda


fair play, i dont think its a prime day deal i didnt put that on, those grades are actually £16


Decent price but not a great Prime Day deal, as it's the same price in Asda, and they offer different grades for different cars


is it cheaper elsewhere or just not a good oil?


Me too

a friend bought these and they jammed before even using them due to poor casting on the upper section, the sealey ones for 23 quid are fine however


Yep had these for many years and are solid. Also got some of these to protect the car underseal from scratching: Rubber Protection Pads


I bought a set to change the oil on my focus ST a few weeks back. Solid as a rock and my drive is on a slight slope (combined with wheel chocks of course). Build quality is far superior to these Halford ones, hence the load rating I suppose


I'm thinking of upgrading to ratchet ones as access is such a pita on my drive. Will check out the ones you mention. Have some silver line tools and am impressed with the quality.
