    5w30. Makes no difference if you have a dpf or not with that oil. Its VX OE stuff. (doubt you have one anyway)
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    All Vectras, regardless of engine fitted - Vauxhall recommend 5w/30 long life from 2002 onwards.

    Just a reminder, don't buy the oil for petrol. The carbon carrying capability is less in these oils.

    Yip.. Confirmed from local VX Parts that VX recommend there 5w30 for any 2002 car onwards, once it gets to approx 90k, they often switch to 10w40 depending on engine and millage usage..
