    Default What engine oil do you recommend

    Hi guys

    Some help please. Need to service my 120 2007 1.9cdti 8v vectra.

    What oil do you use. I see halfrauds have about 4 - 5 fully synthetic 5w30 oils each on recommended for ford, BMW, vw but none showing specifically for Vauxhall.

    On my 20dti I used vauxhalls own oil at £50 a pop but that went 30000 between services. My 1.9 is 20000 or annually. As I only do about 15k per year I will be servicing annually.

    Can there really be any difference between the halfrauds oils?

    I was under the bonnet of a Saab recently and noticed that Saab recommend Mobil 1 oil.

    I don't want to skimp on quality oil but at the same time I don't want to be fleeced for no benefit.

    Before you say - I know that oil is the only thing to protect the engine but is there really much difference?

    Thoughts please.

    BJR

    You need a fully synthetic 5W-30 or 0W-30 in the 1.9CDTIs and thing else could result in turbo failure.
