    thanks for the reply BIGMAC,,


    THANKS For the info Mr wizard I did not know the A was for petrol and
    the B was for diesel, the car seems to run as smooth as silk on this oil, but have noticed a drop( increase) in fuel compsumption,,,but it is getting colder

    Yeah, I have read up on Dexos 2, and it is for Petrol and Diesel engines, so don't worry. I have got it in my diesel. You can look it up on the VX website.

    Copied this off the VX website.

    'One of the latest oils to join our portfolio of approved oils is dexos2. dexos2 is suitable for both petrol and diesel engine requirements and is also compatible with alternative fuels (LPG, CNG and biodiesel). This versatile oil is compatible with different engine designs and improves fuel economy and reduces vehicle emissions.'

    Just drive and enjoy
