    What oil do people use ?

    Hello,

    What oil do you use in your car ?

    I have been using Castrol Edge and Quantum.

    There is nothing wrong with them, But i am just curious of what other people use and what is the best Performance Oil Brand for our Cars ?

    Thanks

    Whatever Halfords recommends, but not their own make. Edge mainly.

    Opie oils are doing 4L and get a 1L topup with carry case free.

    I normally get mine from them in bulk and give it to the dealer. It saves a load .... although not as much as when I ran my 4.2 S4! The needed over 8L of the stuff.

    I've always gone with Mobil for what it's worth.

    Castrol EDGE 5W-30 FST fully synthetic engine oil

    I've no idea about current high street prices so best to check first.

    Edge/SLX 3 5w30 is a good oil & if you shop about you can find some decent deals too.

    Check the Castrol website specs for rating, it maybe different beween the 2 & edge is the apparently premium oil best to use.
