    Have vauxhall put the wrong oil in?

    looked at my service report today to see what oil they put in so i can buy the same and it states mobil super s 10w-40 semi-synthetic oil.. which can be used for both petrol and diesel... but in my service booklet it states 0w-30, 0w-40, 5w-30, 5w-40 but not if fully or semi synthetic..

    have they put the correct oil in for my car ??
