Normally that would be over 40 quid a gallon...……?

Edit:

38.40 for this in Halfords.

If you can find it- buying a couple of gallons is a no-brainer.

Was 18.50 in Halfords around 3 months ago...I spoke to the shop floor worker in Tesco, he said it probably can't be got... their site is awful.

Elevated definition: (Of a level or amount) higher or greater than normal.

Technically any system will have 'normal' operating conditions, in the event that the usual operating temperature of an engine is elevated for any reason for a prolonged period of time then this oil will not perform optimally or maintain the key characteristics required to adequately protect your engine.
