    I bought a 1 litre oil top up today from my local Honda dealer as I always like to have one in the garage.

    They usually supply Castrol, but are now using 'Morris' - not somebody I had heard of before.

    Morris Lubricants - UK Manufacturer of world-class lubricants

    Nice to see that it is British - anybody used their products or have any experience good or bad?

    Morris lubricants are from Shrewsbury, about 25 miles from me. They are cheaper than the mainstream brands, but I will tell you that a good chunk of race drivers and riders are sponsered by these. My mothers ex boyfriend swore by their oil for years, saying its good stuff and its cheap.

    They are also located in the old Sentinal Steam Lorry factory as well, so even more history as well as being featured on the tv show Salvage Squad.

    Just had a browse of their website and they seem like a good company with long history, its not much cheaper than the well known branded stuff though. 5/40w 5 litres is £35.

    I have heard of them before but they seem to keep a low profile.

    I've got some Morris 20w50 in my garage. I use a spoon to put it in the engine.

    I have used Morris oils in my bikes for years as they do a great range of classic mineral oils. I used Exxol Vimax in the FR-V but will certainly give Morris a look.

    They have a decent reputation with a lot of mechanics involved in rallying etc.
    A good brand of all by all accounts
