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]
