Is it a 4T oil or just a normal multigrade car type oil, Mineral, Semi-synthetic or Synthetic?

If it is bike specific oil then that's a very good deal.
Wouldn't entertain car oil though, been there, done that, my bike simply didn't like it and was changed a few days later at a loss.
More people are born because of alcohol than will ever die from it.

Oh yeah sorry, its tractor oil.
with added grinding paste..
M and P charge £40 quid for 4 litres,  £3.12 a litre is a fantastic price ( if you own a Massey Ferguson )

In Morrisons they have got olive oil cheap too, so I am getting a few litres of that. Fuks the engine but smells like an Italian restaurant.
and lard to lube the brake caliper pistons :lol

Tescos garages keep doing this. Bought some a couple of years ago @£2 a litre. Obviously they sell none at £13 a litre, then have to massively drop the price to get rid of it. You think they would have worked it out by now  :rolleyes

Is it definitely available at garage only and not in the store itself?

I'm quite near a big store now, but there's not a garage attached.

Could do with a couple of litres for an oil change on my old trail bike. Might even be enough left over to do the mower! Lol

Definitely garages only. It's Power 1 Racing fully synthetic. I got the last 2 in mine. Obviously celtic had been there first  :lol They've also got Power 1 2T for £3.25 if anybody has a stroker. Similar labels so make sure you pick up the right bottles....

Obviously different stores are discounting various Castrol products. Unless sold out should be in any large store with a motoring section. Cheapest I could see online for Power 1 was £9.50 + postage.

  They've also got Power 1 2T for £3.25 if anybody has a stroker.

Just passed the tip on to my mate who has a 1981 RD350lc.

He's been buying his two stroke oil from B&Q apparently!.

He works just across the road from a Tesco garage. He's checking it out tomorrow.
