    Exclamation Another piggin oil question!!!!!.

    Had the veccy serviced last week and asked them specifically if they were going to use 5w30 fully synthetic,they said that they were now using 0w30 fully synth as standard.After the service I find out they have used Castrol Pro LL025 which is a 5w30 semi synthetic!!.Should I complain and get them to change it or should I leave it as it is?.I do about 4-5k a year,not much I know,(the wife uses the car for shopping etc!!!!),but I do change it every 6 months.Now,that's another issue,when I come to change it,do I stick with what's in or use a fully synthetic one?.The cars currently on 94k.Thanks in advance. FELIXX.

    I would be getting them to change it to what was agreed aswell as a fresh oil filter.

    the castrol will be ok in your car, but thats not the point, was garage a VX garage? if they have only charged you for the castrol I would not worry, it depends what you have been using, if you have only run on fully before, I for one would not be happy that they used semi. dont know how much they charged you for the oil but GM semi for your car is 12 quid for 5 ltrs.

    I always use fully synthetic,and I always make sure that it meets the GM specs.As regards their costings,they listed it as,Castrol GTX PRO LL-025.
    When I asked them if it was a fully synthetic oil they told me it was,but......the Castrol website lists it as a semi synthetic oil.VX charged me...........wait for it,£10.50 a litre and put 5 litres in,(£52.50!!!) .B******'s. FELIXX.

    Well Felixx,, as said the oil they have used will be ok,,but I do feel they have shafted you a bit, but thats dealers for you, Strange a VX garage is using Castrol, as Mobil have the contract to supply the GM branded oils, but dealers what can I say, you can buy 5ltrs Genuine GM 5W-30dexos2 fuel economy long life fully synth oil, plus filter and sump plug washer for 22 quid from my stealers, but just to change the oil for you they charge over 80 quid.
