    Default

    Depends on purpose and age of car (discussed before)

    For topups, any synthetic oil 0W30 to 10W40

    For oil change, under warranty, GM-LL specification only
    For oil chage, out of warranty, as above
    For oil change, out of warranty with reduced intervals, synthetic no lower than 10W40

    As above then :
    For topups, any synthetic oil 0W30 to 10W40

    The petrol station group I part-own sells Castrol synthetic 5W30 (discontinued) so that is what I use for this purpose
    On my 3.0 V6 CDTI it is just over 1 litre from MIN to MAX and is usually required at about 15K miles after service, so I topup at around 10K miles (nearly halfway to next service)

    For topup there is no point spending top dollar, as the oil will already be heavily contaminated and nearing the point of needing replacement
