    Starting My Mini Up

So, I've just bought a 1984 Mini City E as my first car and want to make sure I treat it right.

 

I've read all the posts about Wilko oil, some say its good as its re-branded Comma Oil, others says its muck, but I cant find any recent discussion (i.e. in the last five years) to what its like now...

 

So, has anyone used this oil recently, and if so, is it worth buying?

 

This is the one I'm talking about: https://www.wilko.co...r-oil/p/0342792

 

(Mainly asking because I get discount there and would like to save a few pounds :lol:

 

Thanks!

under £20 delivered to your door. as no one can really answer why take the risk? Halfrauds offer a simular one which is unbranded for £21 which is most likely the same.

It certainly looks legit, if anyone can find out what's in it I'll grab a few tins.
