    Default Which motor oil for a 1.9 cdti 120 hp?

    Next weekend, I'll have to change the motor oil, but I don't know which oil to choose.
    According to Castrol website, I should use Castrol Edge 5w40, which complies with GM LL-B-025.
    On the last oil changes performed at an Opel dealer it was used GM LL-B-025 5w30.
    Which one should I choose now? Castrol Edge 5w40, that follows GM LL-B-025, Castrol Edge 5w30, that doesn't follow GM LL-B-025 or buy the oil at an Opel dealer?

    As a 2006 it is probably out of warranty now
    If you are covered by a third party warranty, then continue to follow OE service schedule and use / request GM-LL oil

    If you plan to reduce the service intervals (from 20K miles / 1 year) then use any synthetic oil

    Engine : Dirty diesel

    Year : 2006

    it was suggested to me by a vx dealer that if above 60k miles on my 120 cdti then a change from 05/30 to 10/40 would be a good idea, i have mainly used 10/40 in my car changed every 10k anyway
