Would this oil brand do for a 1.4 i-vtec?
Just did some research on the wiki and this is what I gathered. Recommended 0w-20 or 0w-30, spec standards: API SN, ILSAC GF-5, can use ACEA A3/**. Oil capacity is around 4.2 litres and Fuchs 0W-30 was used at the factory. So the cost:
Castrol Edge Professional H 0W-20 Fully Synthetic Engine Oil 4 Litres = £43.12 inc vat (I'm sure cox can help me out with a discount)
TITAN Supersyn LONGLIFE PLUS 0W-30 = £34.99 inc vat (might get a discount from opie)
Finally, I found THIS!!! Petronas Syntium 7000 0W-20 - 5ltr = £ 22.78 !!!! from carparts4less, meeting API SN and ACEA C3, ILSAC GF-5. Surely I'm missing something? Why is this so cheap? Petronas any good? And have I just found a gold mine and advertised it to the world... if that's the case great I'm sure they'll take it down in a jiffy.
