I have no problems with mobil 1 haha. It 8217 s justcompetitors have evolved in additives better than they have had and right now there are far better choices.
Thanks for the reply. Handbook only mentions using 5W-85 or 5W-85 oil and B1 grade (the latter part is apparently out of date hence the C2 low ash recommendation) but no preference when it comes to branding for the Toyota Auris SR185 stated. My local mechanic would use SRS fully synthetic oil for this vehicle if given for a service but I 8217 m not familiar? By the way, on a 185bhp car are there any performance gains to be had by using a premium ester oil like Red Line?
On a side note, I 8217 d go for 5w-85 if you enjoy yourself with the pedal and now that winter 8217 s over, I don 8217 t see the benefit of a thinner oil.

Royal Dutch Shell is an Anglo-Dutch company, the world’s second largest oil company and one of the world’s most valuable companies.
Valvoline is the most expensive from that selection from what i 8217 ve seen. All of them great choices, at this moment it 8217 s up to you which one to take from that short list, they 8217 re all going to perform as you need.
Synthetic oils will give your engine’s components more than enough protection if you’ve picked the right viscosity oil and a good, trusted product.
