Hi,

I use Total as I can get at a good price from Micksgarage, especially when they do it on offer. Millers Oil Ireland is also very good, with next day delivery. The oil is a little more expensive, but exceeds manufacturer specs.

Kind Regards,

Eoin

I just check the price on paid on special, 5 Litres + 1 Litre Top up of Total Quartz €33.64.

I'd love try other brands, just for comparison sake, but it's hard to find them at a better price, or from places that will ship here.

Kind Regards,

Eoin

For Castrol Oils look at a Asda of all places! I found their oils up to £15 cheaper of the Edge compared to Opie or Halfords!

edit
Edge £8 more than I paid back in January and £7 more for the Magnatec! Must've been lucky - glad I stocked up! :whistle:

i have also been trying to find this information. was hoping this sticky-ed thread was what i was looking alas not.
every where i look someone recommends different oils
eurocarparts list 6/7 different ones
5/40,5/30,10/40,10/30,15/40 etc :blowup@
found this site https://www.nielsencdg.co.uk/oil-finder.php
but this gives me a choice also depending on brand
0/30 or 0/40 personally i would have thought these types where for more high performance cars :?:
please help :bow:

For my 2.2CDi 2006 manual, should I use the fully or semi synthetic Millers 5w30 or 5w40 whats the general on this one?
I can go by the book, or (which I prefer) real peoples experiences!
