I'm sure I've seen you post on the Lotus forum SELOC before about oil? If so you can help me with another question - will the mobil 1 be suitable to use in my k-series S2 elise as it is fully synthetic? The lotus is due an oil change and I was thinking of buying the Mobil 1...
Yep, that me on Seloc.

Yes the Mobil 1 will be ideal for the K Series, 5w-40 in both engines.

looking for a good oil for the gearbox, only just been fitted got current oil but plan on changing it soon for a better oil and to clean it all out

current oil has been in 1000 miles, but will be looking for better quality oil if possible

also be after oil filter, just wondering what kind of deal you can do for me?

pm if you can please
Can always do you a deal

A synthtic 75w-90 is fine, have a look at this one from Silkolene, the SYn5 75w-90 is an ester based synthetic that meets both GL4 and GL5, it is also have with an lsd.

Have a look http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-850-silk...-gear-oil.aspx

mk1 99 saxo vtr 1.6 8v 100k on the clock?
been having a quick read and generally u suggest 5w-40 or 10w-40 on a budget changed twice as often, but buy my reckoning castrol magnatec 10w-40 is £25.17 x2= £50.24 where as silkolene pro s 5w-40 is £49.35 which ur saying is a superior oil? With a high millage car like mine would i get away with 5w-40 oil if so what would be the change intervals? whats ur reccomendations budget and best?

Semi will be ok, but thats it ok. For track use I would be happier on a synthetic 5w-40.

Plenty to choose from here http://www.opieoils.co.uk

Cheap oil changed often is false economy. As you can see using a top synthetic in the long run is cheaper, and it will do a better job while it is in there.

Even with a high mileage car, as long as it is in good shape a good 5w-40 synthetic is ideal. You dont have to spend Pro S money if can afford/justify it as there are good alternatives such as the Fuchs Titan Supersyn, Motul 8100, Mobil 1 Synt S to name a few.

Have a look http://www.opieoils.co.uk

Cheers

Cheers for that, looked at the oils and filters, just again one question, for the gearbox as said its got a LSD in there, advised 75w 90 in it, but would you go full or semi synthetic?

cheers

It depends on how good you want and how much you want to spend, you can use either but synthetic will in the longterm do a better job.

Cheers

OK cheers thanks for the advice so far.

Before I hand over my money to halfords or some other motorfactors is there any chance you could do me a nice deal on the mobile 5w 40 fully synthetic oil ?

A good 10w-40 semi synthetic with regular changes is ideal, if you want to treat it then a 5w-40 or 0w-40 synthetic.

Have a look at Fuchs, Motul and Mobil here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-647-engine-oils.aspx

Cheers

Guy.
