oils?

with the rising cost of them and the ever lesser money in my (not sure about any one elses) bank account
oil is a cost that seems to be getting much higher increasing atleast 25% on quicksilver stuff since last year, in my local and on the bay too
found this company
http://www.lubetechshop.co.uk/produc...roducts_id=178
http://www.lubetechshop.co.uk/produc...products_id=77
with these two oils
now they sem very reasonable
but the cost of and engine rebuild, if they wernt good
would work out more pricey
just wanted to get peoples opinions before i shell out
cheers
chris

definately drain fuel if you change oil
I wouldn't run Bilube on a steel bore motor either but everyone has there own opinions on this.
most people always stick to one type if they have never had a problem

Premium plus is £58.09 less 15% boatmad discount (but + vat) per 10 litres, cheap insurance I reckon!
