  • Engine Oil

    What make/grade of oil should I use in oil and filter change.

  • #2
    The car comes with fully synthetic 5-30. Vauxhall make this as a long life oil. The filter is expensive though at approx £25, even under trade club (not sure if it does come under TC actually).

    Amsoil is another good oil to use if you can get hold of it. Amsoil do make a racing oil of 10-40 for perhaps a circuit day.

    I think Mobile One is just a tad too thin for me.

        Out of interest how much oil does the sump and filter require during an oil change?

          Who says I don't, No Amsoil is much better and it reaches the parts other oils don't and remember in some peoples eyes I'm Miss daisy and getting old, eh Catherine.
          Tee hee , don't listen to him

          Anyway on a serious note the engine takes 6 litres including filter, 1 litre from min to max on dip stick

              Your ageing like a fine wine Mark, rather than going mouldy like a ripe camenbert
