    why move this from a section that gets the most traffic limiting my chances of a quick reply
    This forum baffles me.

    All Vectra-C engines are supposed to have 5w/30 fully synth long life oil in them. That is Vauxhall's recommendation since 2002.

    As to the post being moved, not sure which one you posted it in, but as it's engine related it makes sense to me that it should be engine sub forum

    not exactly a reason for posting where ever you feel like it. Besides most people use the "new posts" button that shows all new posts since your last visit in ALL sections of the forum.

    If everybody posts in the same section threads would just get lost in the amount of new ones!
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    It wasnt a problem (which that section points towards posting in technical section if it is) it was a general question related to vectra...
    So it made sence to me to post in the general area which also gets the most traffic and hence a quicker reply...
