    Default Best oil too use

    Hi all Iím new here. Iíve got a corsa d vxr stage 2 running 243bhp looking to see what the best oil is to use for it. The previous owner used castrol 0w-30 but Iíve been told by a few people not to use that and use what the Manual says. What is everyone else using stage 2. Thanks in advance

    Don't put too much stock in the brand etc of oil you use. Gm stuff is fine. It's frequent oil changes that make an engine last, not so much the make.

    The same oil as the handbook recommends. Stage doesn't matter. If you tracked your car and regularly hammered it round at high rpm a race spec oil would be advised. But no need on a road car.

    GM Dexos 2 for the win 💪🏻

    Use it on my Stage 3.5 Astra and it's absolutely fine. Agree with Adam on the regular changes etc.
