    Hi,

    I have been struggling to find the best or any gear oil for my GTC 1.4T.

    Does anyone have any advise or recommendations?

    Vauxhall geabox oil is very good, just the LSD on the VXR wears the oil out and thus it needs changing at the same time as the engine oil

    We usually recommend the Fuchs Titan Sintofluid 75w-80 with good results https://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-981-fuc...ion-fluid.aspx

    What year is your Astra?

    Cheers,

    Hi, I was recommended Comma Fully Synthetic 75W90 Plus for Astra GTC 1.4T 2012. Would you say Comma 75w-80 is better?

    Thanks, now I have your year I have looked it up and fr yours with the M32 6 speed manual it is the fuchs sintofluid 75w we recommend, so ignore my link above.

    Have a look at this one https://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-976-fuc...ssion-oil.aspx

    As for the comma, it depends which one you have been recommended they have quite a few 75w-90's and 75w-80's. The gearbox will be happier on 75w-80 over 75w-90.

    Cheers,
