*ANOTHER* oil thread (JTDm)

I'm not going to ask what oil should i use because i already know which viscosity and spec to be using...

what i will ask though is what are you using in your JTDm?

at the moment, for me, Opie is probably going to get my business for 7l of Shell Helix Ultra. Shells fuel goes in my tank might as well put their oil in my engine. (Shell Helix Ultra 5W-40 Pure Plus Fully Synthetic Engine Oil Ferrari Recommended Service Pack: 7 litres for Alfa Romeo 159 939 [2005-2011] 2.4 JTDM)

Might be cheaper to buy 5l + free 1litre + pouch and an extra litre - also use 10% code

I use oil from "Biltema"...5/40 fully synthetic, although not low ash to protect DPF (which is off most of time ;-) ), i feel good karma with this oil when replacing at every 9000 miles (15000 Km), 70 Euros for 10 ltr & with 117 KMiles on the clock now, theres been no increase in oil-usage since i bought her with 60 Kmiles (little less than on litre between oilchanges)

I've used the Shell Helix before and probably will shortly.
