    I'm almost certain that I am now going to use Millers xfe-pd 5w-40 505.01 (semi-synthetic) oil. I'd rather change my oil regularly and am not paying the prices of Castrols 506.01 'LongLife' oils. Millers is £21 for 5 ltrs and I would change every 6 months.

    There has been a lot of discussion over the longlife oil. Has anyone any thoughts on using the semi-synthetic oil or is using anything other than Casttrol LongLife?

    Regards

    I'd say if you're going to change every 6 months then you can't go wrong with the 505.01.

    The most important service item is oil and If you change it like that then IMO how can you go wrong?

    If you can do it yourself then the cost is nothing compaired to paying ANY garage - and lets face it the only reason for the manufactures introducing ‘LongLife’ servicing is to keep servicing costs down for fleet users.

    It’s a fact doing your own more frequent oil changes will ultimately be better for the longevity of your cars engine and turbo……….. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif
