Re: motul oils ??

No, but I hear it is not a bad product. But for my BA XR8, and decided to stick with Mobil 1 product. from 3000 to 10000 I went Mobil 1 (used it previously in my AUiii XR8 from day one), then changed to Castrol R 0-40 in it at 10K, but it went off very quickly after 3000k. I changed back to Mobil at 20000k, and it is still like new after 4000K. Would be curious to know your decision and how you go if you use it.

Cheers

Yea strange you should say that!! I read in a U.S car mag that Mobil sued Caltex for Not selling 100% synthetic oil.Saying they filtered some impurities out of it...But Caltex won the case, saying in there proccess it made there oil synthetic..So I guess they followed ???
