Oho UNIL... sm14 First tile I hear that!! And it's right, it seems to be a belgian make when I go to the website. I have no idea if it's good or not, I only use well-known oils but I can ask for that if you want.

I'm a Castrol GTX man :lol: Have used it in my 340 for 12 years and the 1.7 has not had any faults. I have a philosophy of using good engine oil, good tyres and reputable petrol.

I have used Mobil oils in GLT and Teboil Diamond in GL. That Teboil is a local gas-station/service-station/oil refinery company here in Finland.
