thanks
can you confim which one lots on that page?



looks like choices are

FS ( I assume fully sythertic?)
https://www.smithandallan.com/products/ ... fs-75w-90/

SS ( I assume semi synth)
https://www.smithandallan.com/products/ ... ss-75w-90/

SS I guess is better.

Just looked prices are ex VAT and delivered £7 quid so 5 litres of SS are 30 quid.

so no cheaper than this

My mistake:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/COMMA-GEAR-OIL-SX75W-90-GL4-Part-No-SXGL45L-Warehouse-Stock/263919982927?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

Thats the one I've actually ordered - serves me right for just searching and not double checking my ebay account.

Thanks Mocki,

The link directly above lists GL5 in the description so I thought I would check back here.

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre%20...%200606606374

Do I want the lower and high numbers to be as far apart as possible?

i.e is 75w85 better for our box's than say 75w80?
