Its that time of year again, well its past that time of year it's been only 5k miles but nearly 18 months since my last oil change.
I've gone on the internet to buy my normal go to oil - Castrol Edge 5W20 and I can't buy it anywhere. I can buy every other variant of it but not 5W20.

Is there an alternative that meets the correct spec or is there a location I'm missing

There's many other makes available which do this grade.

There are plenty on the Bay L80OUS. I've used Motul the last 2 changes as it meets the same Ford spec' as the Jaguar stuff.

It is indeed now 0W20. Readily available on Opie oils but not many other places have it in the latest STJLR.03.5006 spec

Thanks for the reply guys, I always used Edge due to it having the correct WSS-M2C925 spec on the bottle.
I'm not sure what other grades meet this spec you can't just buy any old 5W20 oil

I just popped the car specs into Opie Oils, but for me my reg pulls the correct spec oil so I'd presume the same for yours. Easy enough to check the results which are returned.

The 5122 spec has been superseded by 5006 which is backward compatible.

Edge in SAE 0W20 STJLR.51.5122 or 03.5006 is big money, Don't really fancy Fuchs, never heard of them

Fuchs is a massive brand and probably one of the top 5 brands I would use.

Castrol being towards the bottom of the list.
