    You'll need to use 5W30 Longlife synthetic, as that's what's put in at the factory. You'll get a 1 litre topup from your dealer for about a tenner.

    I know this has already been answered but to save money why not get a 5litre bottle of 5W30 from vauxhall...its only £18 on trade. Much better than paying a tenner for a top up!!!!

    If u dont strictly get trade - then ask....my dealer gives trade to anyone he "thinks" looks like they do their own work! lol

    No, it isn't OK. Take it back and get the proper stuff.
