    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
