It had to happen, morphing into another engine oil debate. Of interest what were the grades of the 5100 vs the 7100 Motul oils?

My engine oil of choice is Motul's 4T 5000 or 5100 in the 10W-40 grade, have also used Halfords own brand 10W-40 on the odd occasion. Yes, I'm fully aware that neither exactly meet the Honda recommended specification of API SG 10W-30 JASO T 903 standard: MA. Nor do I want to get into the good, bad, ugly or whether or not it makes any noticeable difference. It works for me, it works for my engines and M&P (Buster's) deliver 4 litres and an Hiflo oil filter to my door at £25.49 for the 5000 or £32.95 for the 5100. If you want they'll also offer 4 litres of the 7100 4T 10W-30 delivered to your door for £43.95 but you'll have to slum it with a K&N oil filter.

On the subject of engine oil capacity I too have found that 3 litres is just about spot on with an oil filter change. The left over litres get rotated at successive oil changes to provide free oil every fourth service.
