Hi Troy

I would use a 5w-40 synthetic and you will find those through the link below.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Motul 300V, Redline and Gulf Competition. The Motul 8100 X-Cess, Gulf Formula G, Fuchs Supersyn and Mobil Synt S are good, cheaper alternatives.

As a budget choice, a 10w-40 will be fine and I would either go for the Fuchs XTR or Motul 6100

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-657-10w-40.aspx

Cheers

Tim

What can you recommend for a 2002 120 1.8 ZS with 44k?

Slightly modded with induction and exhaust.

Do a mix of steady driving to work and then give it some welly once its warm!

Been using general 10w-40 semi, Granville stuff i think, but would like to know what would be best.

Hello, i would like a recommendation on what is the best engine oil to use for my '98 MGF 1.8. The engine,which has aprox. 100,000 miles, was a standard 1.8mpi, recently converted to vvc (about 3,000 miles ago). I live in Greece, and it's extremely hot here during summer (35-38C in shade...). Should i use different oil during summer/winter?

Cheers,
George

Hi George

Go for a really good 5w-40, it will be fine in the summer and winter

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Millers CFS, Motul 300V, Redline and Gulf Competition.

Default Re: Oil Recommendations

Hi George

I would use a good 5w-30, something like the Motul X-Max or Castrol Edge will be fine with those higher temps. The i30 is a fairly new car so should have sufficient cooling to prevent the oil being too badly affected by the exterior temperature.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-653-5w-30.aspx?pagenum=1

A 5w-40 synthetic is the recommended oil for the Piaggio and the ones we have are really good quality, take your pick from any of them.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-781-5w-40.aspx

We can ship to mainland Greece, not the islands, it's a bit expensive though. Hopefully that will change with a new courier.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/t-carriage.aspx

Cheers

Tim

I do recognise the name, but that's about it. Actually, just recognising a name is pretty good for me.

You need to check which Silkolene it is. If it's the Pro S 5w-40 it will be ok, but may use a drop of it, the Pro S 10w-50 is a better choice, if it's the XTR, it's a bit basic and the RS will probably drink it.

Default Re: Oil Recommendations

It is a little thick, I'd save that for the cossie and get a 5w or 10w-40 for the MG. You could use it, but it's not ideal.

Smile Re: Oil Recommendations

I always used Millers fully synthetic 5w 40 oil in mine and it seemed to work just fine.

Many people commented at various meets/rolling road days at how smooth and quiet my engine sounded, and it certainly didn't disappoint on the rollers themselves.

5 litres of the stuff used to cost around £30.

Hi,

Im looking for recommendation for oil for my Kenne Bell twin screw supercharger. My car is an MG ZT V8 and the conversion was completed by Dreadnought Racing who state Redline 50WT should be used. I have rang today to purchase a U.S Quart size 50WT of oil but unfortunately Liam was unable to help as you dont stock the smaller sizes.

Anyway the oil change intervals for the supercharger are every 10k so is there a different oil I should/could be using? what do you recommend only I dont want a Gallon size amount as the supercharger requires very little and it would be a waste.

Hi

We don't have any in stock as there is very little demand for it, but we can get some in if you would like the Redline 50wt. Let me know if you are still interested and we'll get some.

Default Re: Oil Recommendations

Hi Alex

I would use a 5w-40 synthetic and you will find those through the link below.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Millers CFS, Motul 300V, Redline and Gulf Competition. The Motul 8100 X-Cess, Millers XFS, Fuchs Supersyn, Shell Helix and Mobil Super 3000 are good, cheaper alternatives.

We don't have a lot of info on that car, it has the manual box from a Mustang doesn't it? If so, use one of these (yes, it uses an ATF in the manual)

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-1050-mercon-v.aspx

Go for a 75w-90 in the diff, Fuchs Syn 5, Motul Gear 300, Redline GL5 and Millers CRX are top choices for it.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-673-75w-90.aspx

Cheers

Tim

Hi Alex

According to my info, it's the same oil for both gearboxes.

Cheers

Sorry about that. I tried to get it in, but as it's such a slow moving item, my bosses don't want us to carry it in stock. If we could sell more of it, then no problem, but you are the first person to ask for it and we can't justify buying a whole case to sell one bottle and leave the rest sitting there. We ordered some accidentally in the past and didn't even sell a bottle, so we sent the stock back to Redline. We have the US gallon containers in stock (slow movers again, but we occassionally sell some), so I can supply those, but unfortunately I can't help with the quarts.

I would have let you know sooner, but I forgot which forum I was asked on.

Cheers

Tim
