    As above the vauxhall 10/40 semi is fine or if you want to be fussy and your car isn't high mileage you could use the 5/30 fully synth, as for additives, i wouldn't bother, get the car nice and hot by taking it for a good run first and then drain the oil and leave it to drain for a good period of time, basically has the same effect

    Sorry to jump in. If your car is getting quite high in the mileage area what oil should be used?

    I've always changed the oil and filter every 6k with VX 10w40 since owning it for years. Cant actually remember how long I've had her???

    Currently it's on 115,500 or so.

    Carry on the way you are, the oil your using and the change intervals are more than decent enough and should see you good for more miles
