    Well yeah, normal people who don't care about their car probably will.

    BTW this is most of the population, contrary to what living on internet forums would suggest.

    Loads of idiots will buy it, we get people in at work with band new audis that wont spend £11 on a litre of oil for the 30k car, you can show them the oil they need and then they'll go and pick up a bottle od 10/40 cus its £5 cheeper.
    Just out of curiosity was the any refrance list to show you what oil is right for you car (like they have at Halfords).

    i'd use it, never had a car fail down to quality of oil. Remember its all from the same refinery, asda wouldnt be selling it for that price if it they opened their own special green and white refinery.

    If its clear and slippy, its better for your car than if its black and snotty!

    Asda is for normal cars, Tesco sells race grade, specially for M3's ect, maybe sanisburys sell motorsport grade for turbo cars ?

    For anything that's not having the knackers driven off it I doubt it makes any difference what brand of oil you use.

    I put the used oil from my fun car into my daily...

    If the SAE numbers are right then the oil is fine for 99% of people's use. Revving the nuts off of the engine before it's had time to warm up is worse for the engine than a gallon of asda oil imo.

    I use the cheap Morrison's stuff in my daily, 50K later and it's still going strong.

    Oil and filter costs just under a tenner :)
