    Default What sort of Oil

    Is best for my Signum 2.2DTI?? It's getting a service today so I just wondered which oils are the best?

    Cheers

    I use VX 10/40 semi on my 2.2dti. Its good enough for the engine. I also change the oil every 5k, so no point in paying fully synth prices.

    Also when vx used to service my car, they used 10/40 semi in it too.

    And welcome to the site mate.

    Vauxhall recommend that 5w/30 long life fully synth be used in all Vec-C engines.

    In the DTi I use 5w-30 for winter and 10w-40 for summer.

    I'd go with 10-40 on an older engine with it being more worn in places. That's what is in mine and its on just shy of 200,000 miles.
