    Default What oil for 2.2 petrol

    I did a search but couldn't find anything, so question is what grade oil for the 2.2 petrol ?

    The very first service in the book says 10/40 but has not been filled in since, I looked in Halfrauds today as passing and in their books says 5/30 fully synthetic.

    Which one is it???

    Thanks
