Any 2.0 Ecoboost guys out there. Don't know what other specs use this oil
Tesco (not all stores) have a regular offer again at the moment, so stock up guys.

Latest fully synthetic Ford A5, Castrol Magnatec,stop start spec.

They have 2 litre cans at half price, £9.00, so that's £18 for 4 litres, £27 for 6 litres (more than enough for oil & filter change)

That's a good price, even from Halfords with a trade card 4l is £21

Might go pick some up for my 2.5t as it uses the same spec.

What is the difference between

Fully synthetic Ford A5, Castrol Magnatec, 5W 30, stop start spec.

and

Fully synthetic Ford A5, Castrol Magnatec, 5W 30, not stop start spec.

I.e What makes it stop/start spec

More importantly can you top up the non with other?

Looking at Castrol's website, there isn't a Magnatec 5w30 A5 that isn't stop-start.

https://www.castrol.com/en_gb/united-kingdom/car-engine-oil/engine-oil-brands/castrol-magnatec-brand/castrol-magnatec-product-range.html

Mine doesn't have stop-start but they still recommend stop-start oil for it so it's probably just a marketing/advertising device to help their oil.

As for mixing, if both oils meet the exact same specs -

  • ACEA A1/B1, A5/B5
  • API SN
  • ILSAC GF4
  • Meets Ford WSS-M2C913-C/ WSS-M2C913-D

Then I would mix them.

It's just marketing guys.
The Tesco offer is a genuine offer and price.
Every few months Tesco leaves every other seller for dead on this oil.

Dave, you will just have to start up a servicing business, ha ha

I will ask Tesco to slow their special offers down a bit.

That's a bummer though - no special price on 5.20 spec for 1 litre ecoboost :(

haha, well....I did the oil change earlier in the year and now about 1400 miles from the next one, which could mean that I'll be doing it again at the end of July depending on how much I use it (been riding the motorbike to work lately :naughty: ).

There isn't a Tesco in my town so I always have to take a different route home to get to the nearest one (saves on making a special trip), or remember to stop if I'm passing one. time to stock up again :)

Thanks :L

Good job I posted up then.

Mind you, there I go advising of these bargains but the wifes 1 litre Focus needs its 1st 12 mnth serv end of July.

Ford dealer quotes £195.00 inc vat, bloody hell. It is only check check check, don't even take wheels off - just change oil and filter.

The oil does have to be 5w 20 so is dearer than the 5w 30 even at ECP or Halfords etc

I could doddle it myself but best keep warranty intact

I bought 3 bottles in the end and have just serviced the car...I actually had less in stock than I thought (one 4 litre bottle was empty on the shelf in the shed)

But...Halfords have 4L Magnatec for £17.50 at present so I'm going to get some more :)
