Well Happy Shell Helix Ultra or Castrol EDGE 5w/40 & 10w/40

Hello AO-ers,

Firstly I've cleared this thread with a mod on the forum.

I'm looking to bulk buy some Shell Motor oil products. I need 5w/40 for my own car so I was thinking of buying 100 litre drum from the local rep but then I thought I'd ask you guys would you be interested in acquiring some too? If so I could purchase pallet(s) of 5 liter cartons that make for easy distribution.. This is the product blurb:

Shell Helix Ultra | United Kingdom

I'm guessing 5w/40 and 10w/40 would cover the majority of people on here?

I've contacted the local distributor rep and I'm awaiting prices and carton sizes etc. This stuff comes in 1, 5 and 20 litre cartons. So the question to you guys is :

1- Who would be interested in buying Shell oil for their cars in 5 or 20 litre cartons

2- What viscosity do you need?


3- Petrol / Diesel?

4- Brand preference (if any).


I'm not trying to make money on this, just get a group discount for people interested. I can store the cartons until needed by members too, we can work out some distribution network on here too. If I get a list of names I'll publish an excel spreadsheet with all the usernames, car models etc and get pricing on there too. If there is no interest that's fine too... I am still going to order for my cars.


EDIT: After talking with Lacken156 (See below) I think most people would agree with:

Petrol TS engines = Castrol Magnatec or Shell Helix
Petrol JTS engines = Castrol EDGE or Shell Helix Ultra

Diesel JDM engines = Castrol Magnatec or Shell Helix Diesel
Diesel JTDm engines = Castrol EDGE or Shell Helix Diesel Ultra





So I'll start (userName / Model / OilType) :

1. Cathal_H 159 2.2JTS 5w/40
2. Cathal_H GTV 2.0TS 10w/40
3. Cathal_H 159 1.9JTDm 5w/40 [Diesel Ultra]
4.

My brother is a Castrol Rep, would you consider using Castrol?

I buy 60 Litre drums & then use a hand operated dispenser to remove it into a 5litre Jug

I don't care what brand I bulk buy, either Castrol EDGE or Shell Helix Ultra. Lets see how many people express interest here.

PM Sent to Lacken156.. thanks for the offer!

5W30 Edge is certainly no problem.

He is going to ask about 5W40 Edge, he doesn't have stock at present but can't see there been an issue.

The container size choices are:

5 Litre
20 Litre
60 Litre

He can also get Shell oil's, ATF Dextron II , Gearbox 75W90, Selespeed Dextron III.

Delivery will be arranged

& yes while he is my brother, any money exchanged will his, I'm not getting any 'cut' of it.

I use 10w40 Castrol Magnatec.
Would be interested in that or Shell.
You both can PM or text me prices for 5l or 20l if you would like.
Thanks!

We'll just get a list of cars/names here first to get numbers.. then we'll figure out prices versus volume etc..

NOTE: If you put your name here on the list you're NOT committing to anything at this early stage...

I'm just trying to determine what interest is out there... the way I see it is I would organise a group buy every 3, 6 or 12 months and serve the soup out to the troops then at meets or via our intricate Alfa distribution network here..


So, again so far:

userName / Model / oilType / brandPreference ) :

1. Cathal_H 159 2.2JTS 5w/40 Castrol EDGE or Shell Helix Ultra
2. Cathal_H GTV 2.0TS 10w/40 Castrol Magnatec or Shell Helix
3. Cathal_H 159 1.9JTDm 5w/40 Castrol EDGE or Shell Helix Diesel Ultra
4. Mushcles Brera 2.2JTS 5w 40 Castrol EDGE or Shell Helix Ultra
5. Roarsbaby 166 2.0TS 10w40 Castrol Magnatec or Shell Helix
6.

What sort of expected discount are we talking about here- say on 5litres? I think I paid €39 for 5 litres of 5w40 Castrol Magnatec before xmas.

No idea yet on pricing, I'm' just trying to gauge interest right now.
I imagine most people would want 5 or 20 litre cartons. Personally I'll be buying larger.
