To synthesise or not

One of the downsides of owning an older car is that it develops a thirst for oil which in my case has to be slated by the addition of a litre of the slippery stuff every couple of months.

Here’s my latest purchase.


It’s what it says on the can, plain engine oil which set me back €8 a litre. I could alternatively have had synthetic or semi-synthetic for something like €18 a litre.

I’m guessing that at this stage the synthetic is just a waste of money.
