Engine oil choice

Postby Dan » Wed Jan 02, 2008 11:00 pm

So going to change the oil and filters tomorrow, last 2 oil changes i've went with castrol magnetec 10w40 then last change Castrol Edge 5w-30, didnt notice any difference between the two to be honest apart from Castrol Edge being twice the price! Ive heard of people using "Millers" oil anyone try this yet and know how much it is and where to get it?

Millers is supposed to be very good oil. Heard lots of people using it and there gearbox and diff oil are supposed to be popular too. CDA do it think

We only do Redline engine/gearbox/diff oil. Millers we only do the CVL Turbo.

@cda, how much is an oil change with you including filter? Does an appointment need to be made or can someone just drop in?

Dan, the price for Redline 1L or 4L will work out the same, exactly 4 times. No savings made by buying the bigger bottles and we found that it's more convenient for customers to just have 1L bottles. Redline isn't cheap, you can compare our prices with the UK prices and it's exactly the same (after VAT). With engine oil, you really get what you pay for.

Gerbo, oil change just engine oil and oil filter? Oil filter is about 25 euro for the Power Enterprise magnet ones (highly recommended). Labour is 50 euro. Oil depends on what you want.

Nope wasn't thinking that at all. Just that Redline generally is one of the most expensive oils available. Royal Purple in the USA is about the same price as well.

Ya usually bigger bottles should be cheaper. For some strange reason Redline doesn't have that policy and it just doesn't make sense to buy the bigger bottles at all.

i've seen this topic of oil come up alot on other forums. and a lot would say the brand of oil make's no difference, as long as the oil and filter are changed offen.
