Hi

When in France i bought 36lts of Mobil 1 Turbo Diesel for £147.70 which works out at £4.10/litre.
Halfords sell 4 litres for £34.99 which means if i had bought it there it would have cost me £314.91.

This means i spent £147 on oil in France and saved £167 amazing.

thanks

Got the oil in Norauto (French Halfords) in Chambre de Tours just south of Tours next door to the Auchan hyper market, there is an MB dealer about 1/4mile away also.
Oil generally is far cheaper in France, and i dont know if there is a restriction on the qty you can take home.

We have 2no. 3 lt diesels in the house and both take approx 8lts for an oil change so i have enough for 4 oil changes at mineral oil prices.

It is amazing... life's unfair to the Brits :(

Slightly off topic I bought a Nikon 35ti - a luxury titanium clad 35mm camera
at Jessops it cost £950, I got it for £330 in Hong Kong :eek:
- someone is making a mark up somewhere!

The saving can buy the airfare out there!
