    Default shock-horror

    Went to halfords today to buy some oil and filter for the motor, went with the idea that i would spend about £40-£50, bought some castrol edge because it had got the appropriate numbers on the containers the price for 4lt £42-99 plus 2lt@£13-99 each nearly dropped through the floor when i saw that.Went to the stealers and they were even more, its a turbo diesel so is that why its so expensive.

    Could be worse mate, my bike is only a 600cc, takes 4 litres of oil, but i MUST use Mobil1 fully synthetic, the cost of that and an oil filter costs me £50
