    Icon10 ELF Oils - SA

    I just paid a visit to Craig Rundle of Performance Fuel's SA.

    He's also the SA Distributor of Elf products. He is willing to look after all us aussiefroggers with some good deals on Elf products.

    The rundown is as follows:

    Excellium GP 5W40, 10W50
    3 x 5 Litres - $38.30 per bottle ($114.95 per box) ($7.66 per litre)
    20 Litres - $104.95 per drum ($5.25 per litre)
    200 Litres - $999.95 per drum ($5.00 per litre)

    Competition GT 10W40, 15W50
    3 x 5 Litres - $27.95 per bottle ($83.95 per box) ($5.59 per litre)
    20 Litres - $89.95 per drum ($4.50 per litre)
    200 Litres - $799.95 per drum ($3.99 per litre)

    Super Sporti XP 10W30, 15W50, 20W50
    3 x 5 Litres - $14.95 per bottle ($44.95 per box) ($2.99 per litre)
    20 Litres - $59.95 per drum ($2.99 per litre)
    200 Litres - $519.95 per drum ($2.60 per litre)

    If what your after isnt listed above contact Craig and he'll look after you.

    It is able to be picked up from their business in Beverly or you can phone an order through on 1300 726 084 and they can arrange delivery to anywhere in Australia. You can also drop him an email here: [email protected]

    I just picked up a 20l drum of Excellium which should last me for about 4 oil changes.

    He is also getting his products out in stores like Motormate (in SA) where at the moment you get a free Elf cap!

    Why 15W50?

    It's 10W50 and at present, I'm running a BX16V on 0W40 with no problems.
    Is the car an oil burner or is there another problem?

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Isn't his just an 8valve motor ... I've run 15-50 shell helix in the BX and Xantia probably a combine 130,000kms without an issue ... They love the stuffl. Nice 'n' thick when warm, but still thin(ish) when cold.

    Perfect for old technology motor like 505/CX/DS/504.

    The Excellium is full synth Comes in a nice blue tin with Elf written on it too!

    Shane,

    I'd get a price on the freight - Craig was telling me that he sends them thru Aust post all the time without any issues. May not be as much as you think!

    I tried a 5/50W but that just went straight out the exhaust, was reading the 205 manual and it does reccomend 10/50 might look into switching to that, been using a 15/50 because that's what my mechanic was putting in as a semi-synth so just kept it up but in full syn. Bummer cost only got a new drum a few weeks ago, oh well, will definetly look at going to Elf next time.

    Sensational prices. Mike, does the drum come with a siphon or spout arrangement?

    Shane, previously three of us would share in a group buy of 6x4L bottles from the Elf distributor in QLD and even with freight it still worked out far cheaper than anything off the shelf.
    Take the long way home....

    I havent opened it but it's only got a large(ish) screw cap on top. So it could be a small pain but nothing that a funnel cant sort out! I have got one of my 5lt Elf containers that I'll just keep refilling to use on the car.

    They reckon about $25bux to get a drum to my door in the post (not bad).

    It is a pitty they don't do full synthetic in 15-50. At those prices I'd be interested in running fully synthetic. My old CX doesn't use a drip between oil changes, but changing to 10-50 might be a bit hard on the old tech motor in it
