A multi-multigrade?

Not a great deal in all honesty. Depends what the majority is, generally.

Apologies, confusing things my end. It is the oil I use in the CVHs and you are right it is semi synthetic, and truthfully I did know that, just been a while.... actually I probably should do an oil change before curbs.

It's the Shell 5w/40 that I also use copious amounts of that is FS

Still, keenly priced, and I normally rustle up a further discount with a code.
