Re: Motrio Engine Oil - good or bad compared to Castrol

To me oil is oil and providing it meets the requied SAE standards then its safe to use... you can use Motul racing oils in it if you like (providing it meets required specification of the engine) but its not worth the money you will spend and it won't extend the life of your engine anymore (IMO) than say a Halfords branded equivilent meeting the same standard.

Motrio is Renaults aftermarket brand for older cars and shouldn't be frowned upon. Personally, I'd take 5l of that for 11 over a Castrol at 20 anyday.
