    Another oil thread!

    I have been doing some searching but still am a little unsure to what oil to use!

    This will be the 1st oil change iv done on the coupe, im also unsure what oil was used on its last change.

    choices are semi syn 10w 40 (iv always used this in previous vauxs) or fully syn 5w 30, both are from vauxhall. my car has covered approx 45k if tis helps.

    If fully syn was used previously is it ok to go back to a semi syn?

    Id like to by the oil in the morning so quick replies invited!

    tbh i would get woteva u want, as theres as many opinions on oil as there r leaves on a tree
    vaux say 5w/30 but ppl say is too thin and can leak through seals, i use 10w/40 FS gd oil but have 2 take it easy until oil warms up as is a big thicker, then there 5w/40 and 0w/40. list is endless, if in doubt stick to wot Vox reccomend

    well id like to stick to what i know which is semi 10w 40 but if its got fully syn in it now is it ok to go back to a semi?

    I only have the 2 choices listed above available to me or id just go for 10w 40 fully syn

    I also do oil changes every 6 months too.

    doesnt make any difference changing between FS or semi tbh. 10w/40 fs is hard to come by, i use amasoil, but aint cheap. if u got trade club, get vaux stuff is buy 3 get 1 free and prices r like half price for card holders
