Evora S Engine Oil

Recommended Posts

I am supplying my own oil for the next oil change (dealer prices are silly!).  

Obviously I know that I need a 5w40 fully synthetic, but I wondered if their are any particular makes/ranges that people have found work better than others in terms of wear etc.

My car is my daily driver, used all year doing some town work, a lot of fast A and B roads, and a annual 2 week road trip to the warmer parts of Europe.

So which oil would you go for?

I asked Opie, they came up with a range of suggestions, but reading some of the oils are better for high revs, some better in the cold etc.  So I am trying to narrow it down.

I've always used Shell Helix Ultra 5w_40 fully synthetic in my S2 Exige and Dave's and he tracks his a lot with no ussues And differant grades of shell in all my cars 

Reson we use shell in fridge plants of all makes and these oils have to cope with -50'C to 110'C and have used Mobile, Elf, Fuchs, sunisco, Emkarati  and many others over the years but Shell has never caused an issue with waxing and carryover or carbonising so have applied some man logic and always used it in my cars even my old Merc 20 years old and 180k finally rotted away but never touched the engine appart from oil and filter.

Plus 5L When on 50%discount at euro car parts under £19 compared to £52 in a Shell garage.

Just my thoughts but everyone has a favourite oil 😊

Ask the Oilman:

You’ll get a great performing oil at a great price. I’ve been using them for years, across various cars. 

Which one do you use Johnny?

I came into this world screaming and covered in someone elses blood. I'll probably leave it in the same way.
