    Default recent service

    Evening all.
    I serviced my vec c 1.9 cdti sri estate (z19dth engine)last weekend, all filters and oil changed etc.....I have used Castrol Magnatec (used this loads of times before in other diesels),5-30 fully synth...along with genuine gm filters. My question is on the quality of oil ?
    whilst i have noticed the car is so much smoother/quieter thanks to the service, I have noticed a slight drop in power, albeit its hardly noticable, I also think my MPG has dropped a couple too.....what do you peeps reckon ? anybody else experienced this.....
    i hardly want to drop the oil again to be honest....

    Wait at least 2 weeks / 500 miles
    Allow 24 hours and recheck the oil level

    As above... also the drop in outside temp could contribute to the consumption
