    Or is this a bit like the Fight Club section?! There were threads in here when I joined the forum I'm sure of it... :hmmm:

    Anything over a number of years old was cleared out recently to keep the running costs down :)

    As an aside, I'm using Shell Helix 10W-40. Just in case anyone cared, which they don't :D

    I have just used Carplan's 10w40 semi synth on the basis that a 20 litre container cost £43 at a local motor factor.

    I know....I know......tight-fisted old bugger.....but it meets the spec.

    I am using Shell Helix 10W-40 too for both Rovers all the time I own them.

    Isn't there a school of thought that as engines get older and higher mileage, that they should use a different oil rating?

    I think that was more true when oils weren't as advanced as they are today, and engines weren't built to the same tolerances. Personally I wouldn't use anything other than 10W40 in order to make a subjective compensation for engine age. Happy to be told otherwise.
