    for yours, most would use vauxhall 10w-40 semi synthetic and change it every 5=10k personally if i was keeping it a while id put in the 5w-30 fully synthetic and change it the same as above!
    At the end of the day, it gets dark!!!!!

    if you go by the book it is 5w/30 synthetic for the Astra 'H' , although if it was my car i would use silkolene pro sport 5w/40 ester oil.
    one of the best oils money can buy

    Now called Fuchs Titan Race Pro S 5w-40 but indeed, is a superb oil. Opie oils on here sell it and may get a discount, I'm not sure though.
