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.

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

Joe90_guy

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!

ansonuk1

Is this oil UK produced ?

Joe90_guy

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!

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.

weebigal

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.

jouster

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.

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.

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

united4eva

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!

LordMetro

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

Yip_Man

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

oscarcat

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?
