Castrol Magnatec 5W-30 A1 - reccomendations?

Postby bernard1973 » 28 Feb 2009, 18:03

I see Asda have got 2l cans of this for £6.30. Can anyone confirm this is a good oil for T25s? Mines a 2.1 petrol BTW. :)

Great oil but not for an aging T25 engine that was designed 30 years ago. The viscosity is too low, 15W/40 is preferable.
