Quality product.
11 February 2023  | 

I started purchasing Ravenol 0/20 because it has BMW approval to its FE17 spec. I change it once a year rather than the 2 years the vehicle computer would allow. The engine has no timing chain noise or start up from cold rattles at all, hopefully it will stay that way.
I have now purchased some HLS 5/30 for my daughters Astra GTV, the oil has full Dexos 2 spec and is of a similar price to some of the high street brands.
I am a convert and recommend Ravenol whenever I can.

Oil change intervals really depend on how you drive. Mainly short trips or towing a trailer / caravan then once a year. Mainly long journeys then 2 years (if recommended by the vehicle manufacturer) is fine with an oil of this quality, though of course best to change earlier if the maximumum mileage is reached.

I wish more people knew about Ravenol oils in general. They are better than most of the oils found on the market nowadays. They are impossible to counterfeit considering the security bits and pieces that they have. After changing the oil on my Corsa E 66 plate I can definitely feel the difference as my engine runs smoother and quieter. To keep in a good shape I change it every 6300 miles which is almost 10,000km.
