With a comprehensive range of high powered, high capacity engines its important to pay attention to the correct engine oil recommendation.

All engines require synthetic products respecting Ford and BMW specifications, with viscosity grades ranging from 5W-20, 5W-30 and 5W-40. Engine oil change interval is typically 15,000 miles / 12 months, but this will be dependent on conditions and application, ie towing heavy loads.
