    Fully synthetic oil

    I was wondering if the 5W30 SYNTHETIC OIL available from autovaux will be ok in my Astra. I think the last time I used 10X40fully so should this be ok?

    Thanks

    Yeah it'll be fine, it's recommended in the handbook and it's what Vauxhall are sticking in them now so you'll be fine

    It's slightly thinner when warm so you might use a little more oil than normal.

    I'll be sticking 0w40 Fully Synthetic in mine when i can be bothered...
