    Oil Change

    Can anyone tell me how much oil is needed for an oil change on a 54Plate 1600 I have been asked to do my Mums car just not sure how much is needed.

    I use full synthetic vx stuff I'm guessing this is the recommended on here

    Cheers

    A 5 litre pack should do it with some left over for top ups.
    I'm not sure if fully synthetic is really necessary (unless your mum drives it like a rally car all of the time) so the regular VX grade should suffice and be easier on the pocket than fully synthetic.

    Cheers for the response Montyfox, I may go with Semi Synthetic then if thats the case, nah my mum drives like miss daisy lol.

    I tend to use full synth as I used to put this in my old car lol. guess compared to an omega full synthetic maybe going to the extreme.

    Cheers again
