I have now investigated and rectified the issue. Your members should quote 'FRENCHCAR13' Please note this is case sensitive so must be entered in upper case for the discount (15% off total order) to be applied at the checkout. I have tested this and it works perfectly.

The code is valid until 31/12/2014. If you wish to contact us towards the end of the year, we can review the offer for 2015.

Requesting an update on this thread.

Looking to buy some Transmission oil.

Have total moved their website - and can a code still be arranged?

I found it was still slightly cheaper (or as close as makes no difference) to go via Nielsen or Opie Oils.

This looks like their new website but the "Buy Online" link goes nowhere.

As Bobins says, probably better to use Nielsen or Opie.

All the major producers now only supply via distributors ( Shell, Fuchs, Castrol, Total etc). The distributors are rated gold, silver and bronze and you can only buy from the distributor based on your annual spend.i.e. don't expect any favours on price!.

A) Can we have an update for members - on places to buy discounted Total oils please.

Seems some of the previous distributors are no longer trading or have changed names.

B) Are there any discount codes members could share?

They seem to have abandoned the discount scheme through lack of use.
As noted above it became restricted anyway and the savings were minimal to zero.
I never used it, finding it preferable to buy locally or from Amazon or eBay.

I did approach Opie Oils some time ago but the main man was away and never made contact. I will contact them again and see if there is anything they can do.

I normally get mine from eBay. On a good day you can get 5 litres of Ineo ECS for not much over £20 delivered. Opie and Motorply are normally competitive, but other good deals from other suppliers come and go as well.
