    Ermmm. See above. I just change it every 6K instead of the recommended mileage. For 36 quid a go all in at Masterfit it is good VFM

    £36 a go!!! that is good, I enquired about an oil change on my Calibra before its service and they wanted about £75. I may try Masterfit then.

    Sorry. I lied ops:

    It was actually 37.85, after the VAT and all that! Still cheaper than Halfords/Local Garage/Doing it myself with the proper gear!

    I change the oil in mine every 6k miles, you cant get much better than the vauxhall fully synth especially for around £10 in trade club, cs reccomended the vaux oil.

    Oil and filter.

    What about the Mark 4 1.8 16v oil? Which one?
    And anyone know why Vauxhall used a different
    setup on the 1.8 16v for the oil filter.
    To walk between the lines , would make my life so boring!!!!!!!!!
