    lots of threads on here about it use the search for bit more info but you can use either the vaux/gm branded 5-30w fully synthetic or as now recommended 0-40w mobil1, you can get the mobil from costco around £23 for 4l

        The petrol you use doesn't affect which oil you use

        Mobil1 0w40

          Hi TC-Tony, My VX dealer has recently used Castrol Longtech 0w-30 at 1st service.

            Hey Tony

            Yeah, as the guys said, you want the fully synth stuff 5w30 or 0w40.

            I always use the one from the stealers, i believe its 5w30

              I believe the oil from the dealers will now be Mobil1 0w40 changed from the 5w30 - although when dealers all catch up to this I don't know.

              As long as it has the GM approval which matches the details on the Service booklet you should be good

                  Just had my 1st service and replaced with fully synthetic and purchased a litre as I wasn't sure which type. I was given GM fully synthetic.
