    Question about oil.

    Hi all,

    OK well I bought some fully synthetic oil for my car.

    However now there is confusion about it, so does anyone here know the answer to my question?

    I have been sold GM Dexos 2 which on the internet looks like this is for diesel engines?

    However, some have said in the VXR manual it says this is the correct oil for both petrol and diesel?

    Searching on the internet is confusing as it seems alot of sources say its a light diesel oil, but yet VXR owners are saying it says to use this as its for both petrol and diesel?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Cheers.

    I was sold this too and its been in my Coupe Turbo for about 2 weeks now. Car is running miles better than before.

    The guy at Vauxhall said if I wanted to give my car a treat then this was the stuff. 5 Ltr's is normally £40+ but they give it me at trade for £16, I will service the car every month for that price

    I was a bit cautious about using it too but from what I have read it is the correct oil for the VXR

    According to the Interweb, Dexos 1 is for petrol, Dexos 2 is for diesel...
