    Default That cheap Asda Castrol oil

    In my stupid bargain hunting excitement I grabbed the last 2 4l Magnatecs on the shelf, gets home and realise one is Ford spec and the other Vaux spec, would they both be ok if mixed or am I taking a risk with my 3.2? Its only for 6 months as due a proper service and this is just an interim oil change with only recently buying it......

    From memory, one is 5W30 and the other is 5W40 or A1 and A3/B4
    Check the receipt to see if you have been charged for two different products

    Two alternatives :

    Keep the Ford one for future topups, go back and buy the correct one
    or
    Take the Ford one back and ask for exchange (however, check receipt as scanned item might be incorrect, so might need to take both back)

    Naa, they both scanned same (minus slight barcode difference) on the £10 clearance offer. The Ford one is 5w-30 but A1 so thinking use the Vaux stuff and top up last couple of litres with the Ford one but not if it won't be good for the engine.
