just noticed your moaning at £25 a gallon for oil, thats nothing lol. when i had the rover turbo, when i was using millers oil it was around £50 a gallon, i then switched to halfords stuff and changed it every 3k.

bloody hell, £50 a gallon!
i know my mates race boat cost him £1000 for a minor service (coolant, oil, filters, timing check).. i hate to think what oil he uses...
i guess that £25 a gallon isnt too bad, i'll use cheaper stuff in future though and change it earlier
