Castrol Actevo 2T - Still @ £4.25 in Tesco

When StephenO originally posted that Castrol Actevo 2T was on special offer @ £4.25 in Tesco, I went into our local Tesco Extra where it was priced at £5.90 on the shelf - better than ADSA @ £7.50 but still too pricy IMHO.

Today I checked again as I needed more this week; I bought one litre hoping I would find a better price in due course. At the check-out I was charged £4.25, and when I said that the shelf price was £5.90 I was told the computer was updated with special offers, but often the shelf prices were not updated.

Accordingly I went back & bought their remaining stock - only 3 bottles! However they said they would have more stock in a few days.

I then visited Halfords ony 100 yards distant, to check their prices as a matter of interest. They said that the price was £8.99, as on their website, but they didn't stock it as there was no demand!

I pointed out that Tesco's price was £4.25 & they had sold at least 4 bottles today. The response was Tesco's pricing is keener than ours, which is probably why we don't sell much!

The message, try your local Tesco & query the shelf price if it is more than £4.25 per litre.

I thought the FC oil was previously in the silver bottle? But looking today at Tesco the FC was in a black bottle.


The Actevo 2T FC oil was always in black bottles (for the last 2 years anyway) but has just changed to a silver bottle. The reason I know is when I bought mine the other week there was only 2 black bottles on the shelf and the assistant went to get more "fresh" stock which was in silver bottles, exactly the same as the 4T bottles which could cause a bit of confusion.

My local Tesco's garage stocks it at £4.25. They only put 2 bottles on the shelves, which I then buy and they restock a few days later, which I then buy again.

I've done this 4 times now and have 8 bottles in stock but I cannot persuade them to stock more due to 'low demand'! Tried to point out that I have bought every bottle they have put on the shelf so far but they do not get the hint!

Was down to my last bottle from my Asda bulk purchase.
So today I popped out to take Mrs ronp shopping at Tesco in York.
Had a look on the shelves in store, but no Actevo.
So when we got to check-out I popped across the car park to the filling station.
Low and behold a shelf facing of Actevo, there were 6 bottles ...... but not anymore.
So, anyone popping down to Tesco in York for some.......... Ner Ner

I will not be happy if anyone laughs... Embarassed

Had read this when it started and remembered I was getting low and needed to pick up a couple of bottles while on offer..

so called into our local asda, but no stock, while out working called in another asda, no stock there either, tried the large adsa at wakefield, they must have some, unless forum peeps have cleared them out Whistle

still no joy, so was going to post no asda's seem to have any Actevo....

MUST try and call at Tesco on the way home.. Censored

Seem to remember a tip about using an empty Redex bottle (250ml)....that would make the ratio more like 300:1 on a fill-up.....am I getting confused( I know its easy) ? Confused

Appart from the first 2 fills I use 330ml per tankful, so 3 fills per 1L bottle.

Brings the cost into the 'reasonable' category.
