A synthetic lubricant is produced by chemical synthesis rather than by extraction or refinement of petroleum to produce a compound with planned and predictable properties.
And the important word here is stock. Using , which includes the parts you need for two oil changes: two oil filters plus two drain plugs and washers, it is recommended that this service be performed every 7,500 miles. The fuel filter is located inside the rightrear wheelwell. Just to make things a bit more complicated, there are a whole lot of other oil properties to be taken into account when choosing the ideal engine lubricant. The Penrite stuff was a more efficient coolant too, becuase it didn't have that thermal barrier of the slime.
It must be love Thanks all, not sure why I got so confused with this, must have been having a blonde day If in your shoes I would spend couple quid more per litre and get at least this: I wouldn't recommend more than 3000 miles on the oil you chose so, in the end, the cost per mile would be higher.
