    Went into Halfords last week to get a part for kids bike and spotted a promotion on PETRONAS Syntium 7000 oil.

    They had 5L 0W-40 (and other viscosities) Fully synthetic API SN, ACEA A3/B4 which was MB approved 229.5 at £40.99.

    That works out at £8.20/litre which is in some cases better than half the price of other brands. As PETRONAS is a major sponsor of MB F1 and develop oil alongside MB ,the packaging has Mercedes Benz and AMG branding on it my guess is its a bargain, especially if you have and engine that uses oil. As many do.

    Other brands look to be a similar price until you notice the containers are mainly 4Lt not 5.

    £3.40/litre. Great value. Almost unbelievable from a MB stealer. Seeing as its regularly priced at 5 times as much almost anywhere else in the UK.

    I currently have Petronas in a Leon Tdi, every 1500 miles it goes from max to min, even Castrol managed 3k. Trying Liqui Moly next if that doesn't live up to its name then I'll go back to Motul or Shell of which it never used any..

    It may have AMG branding but last I heard Mercedes only recommended Mobil 1 for AMG engines?
    Mobil 1 still only £29 for 5 litres at Costco.

    Our local Mercedes independent uses Petronas Syntium 5000xs. Just bought some for doing an oil change on the BMW. £36 for 8 litres from carparts4less.
