    Rated 5 out of 5 by Old 70s motorcycle I got this oil for my 1970s Beamish Suzuki's Gearbox. Modern oils are that great for it. It just needs a good 20w50. Gearbox feels great now. I also like the retro metal can 17 September 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by SERVICE This is more about the service than the product which is a bit specialised. I don't live near a Halfords but my daughter does so it's very convenient to be able to just go along and pick up something a bit unusual when I visit. Service was excellent, the product was there and the young lady that served me was very pleasant and knowledgeable. 29 June 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for air-cooled vw Have used this oil for over four years at each service on my 2Ltr air-cooled vw with hydraulic tappets. After the usual winter break it's a bit tappy on start up but then it's perfect and quiet running for the rest of the year. Very satisfied with its performance and retro tin. 27 June 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by An excellent full-bodied quality oil I've used this oil for many years on my pre-war Austin 7 and now on my 1950 MG. I believe from it's green colour and very full body that it's actually the old Duckhams Q20/50 reborn in another guise. Use it in your won't be disappointed! 26 April 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Ideal Product Just what I needed for my 68 Land Rover. Old engines don't need too much detergent but need a viscous oil to stick to old 'worn' moving parts. Not so viscous to make turning over the engine too difficult in the middle of winter and also protective in the summer heat stuck in traffic. 09 April 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Works well, specialised for old engines which is a plus too! 09 March 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good 'old fashioned' oil I was looking for a simple oil for a thirty year old diesel. This plain mineral oil pleasantly coloured green is reminiscent of the Duckhams of the 70's [and my youth]. For an old Ducato with no turbo, this oil seems ideal and is suitably priced for regular oil changes to be cost effective Early days for a comprehensive review but subjectively the engine sounds better? 25 October 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value with the free screwdriver set on special offer Quality oil for my classic Land Rover. The period looking tin is a nice touch. 14 October 2015
