    What oil for 1.7 TD?

    I intend to do an oil change on a 1999 1.7 TD this week, what oil do people on here recommend for this? Autodata says 10-40 semi synthetic, does this mean a specialised diesel oil or will the standard GM stuff be ok? I have some (actually labeled ac delco) which says it's suitable for petrol and diesel engines.

    Just bog standard oil will be fine, just ensure is diesel certified, GM stuff is.

    Yeah the standard 10/40w semi you get from VX is and on Trade Club it's cheap! (As long as you don't mind buying 20 litres at a time)
