Hello peterdarlison

Welcome to the MSE site.

I'll move your thread to the 'Motoring & Public Transport' board.

Hi, Martin’s asked me to post this in these circumstances: I’ve asked Board Guides to move threads if they’ll receive a better response elsewhere(please see this rule) so this post/thread has been moved to another board, where it should get more replies. If you have any questions about this policy please email abuse@moneysavingexpert.com.

Regards

dunno on the maker but if it meets the specs for your engine its safe to use

check the handbook it will have a api rating , then see what the tescos rating is

I spotted Asda own brand diesel 15w/40 oil half price (Under a fiver for I think 5l).Was tempted to buy some for my petrol car as it had the correct specs for petrol engine oil and was highly specified from what I could tell.

HI again
From what i can gather the spec especially @ tesco and confirmed by my brother in law (mechanic) is as good as any and cheaper too so as long as the specs are ok why not save money? Someone must make it for tesco
