Lubrication, again....

Post by Loki » Thu Apr 26, 2018 1:58 pm

Hiya

Shell engine oil 0w-30 fully synthetic - it says 507 on the Guru of Google, so 60l for £275 make it worth salting away for 2 VW diesel engines and servicing every year?

Cheers

Hi

That old chestnut again - oil!

TPS seem to be doing ....507 spec oil at £15 + VAT - I dont have full details but seemed good value for 5L - worth taking a punt for a couple of years stock?

Oil , tyres , so vague...

Shell Helix Ultra.. millions of versions , Dunlop Sport.. likewise .

Only Shell worth considering above the norm is Shell Helix Ultra 0W30 ECT C2 C3 because of it's low temp lower drag viscosity .

Hi Gazwould

You are correct did not elicit an adequate level of details - will do so and post again - reason: smarting at price of tyre pressure sensor thingys........

Hiya

The TPS oil at £15.75/5L is Quantum Longlife III, 5w-30, ....507 0n the specification - worth considering for the price?

Hiya

Thanks for commenting.

Really - I am fairly sure I was quoted inclusive.............sure my ears were ringing from the price on the T-pressure sensor. With it added it comes out at what they were punting same out at last year (perhaps a few pence more).

2 VW stable vehicles have to be looked after so soon adds up....
