    Astra 1.8 Coupe engine oil question

    Hi guys, just bought a '54 plate 1.8 Coupe for the missus and would like to know what's the best engine oil to use, please?
    I've found the grade's a 5W30, but is a full or semi synthetic best??
    Also, are main dealer oils still good price-wise compared to Halfrauds???
    Any help gratefully appreciated.

    Thought it was 10w 40 semi, that's what i have been using, you can get 4x 5 liter genuine vauxhall oil off ebay for £42.50 plus del. ebay item number 360121971573.

    Thanks Mr Technodean.. You are right.. 10w 40 semi.. I had to get some today from the main stealer, but def worth buying in bulk for that price!
    Cheers man.

    Join AOC as a paid member - £15 a year

    then youll get trade club discount at Vauxhall

    4 x 5LTR of 10w40 Semi for £37.57 INCL VAT (at current VAT rates)


    With that £15 fee youll then be entitled to trade club prices on all qualifying parts!


    Anyway, that out of the way 10w40 is advisable for your engine

    Vauxhall changed their recommendation from 10w40 to 5w30 a few years back but most ppl would advise u stick with 10w40
