Eni 10w40 or Shell Helix 10w40

Our 145 TS is due a service this weekend and I am going to stop using Mobil 1 0w40 as it is using a little too much (litre per 1,000 miles) want to move to a 10w40 but stay with a fully synthetic oil. Anyone know where I can buy Eni (Agip in old money) or Shell Oils in Dublin

I use Shell Helix Ultra 5w-40 & Shell Helix 10w40 on all our cars at home.. and normally bulk order the oils from here : Engine Oil, Motor Oil and Car Engine Oils from the largest UK independent online supplier of Performance Oils (not Dublin)



EDIT: this would be the stuff you're looking for : http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-68977-sh...ngine-oil.aspx

Could not get a 10w40 fully synthetic oil, so bought Petronas Syntium 3000 5w40 Fully Synthetic from Donohoe's in Motor City while I was there getting the filters and sump washer for the 145. Will be interesting to see what the consumption is like, was very reasonably priced and exceeds ACEA A3/B3 and B4.

156 sw 1.8ts

put 5w30 in the ts change before last and and found out just how many places a ts engine can leak oil used about 2 ltrs per 1000 miles went back to 10w40 semi cheap bulk oil that we get in 200 ltr barrels and the consumption improved to about .5 ltrs and most of the oil leaks stopped apart from the annoying leak from the variator solenoid
that keeps soaking my ecu connecter in oil
