I don't really rate it. It didn't seem to last very long in my old 1.2... Everyone else seems to like it though...

how do you mean it didnt last very long? if you mean it was being burnt off then surely thats a problem with the engine not the oil itself?

No it just didn't seem to lubricate the engine as well for very many miles in comparison to some of the other stuff idiot.
