    part synth is no good for our diesel engines (cdti's) but ok for 10k use at a time on the dti's.. and a lot of the petrols prefer the fully synth as well..

    If they are doing 5/30 in part synthetic id buy it as long as you are restricting yourself to 6K oil and filter changes. It wont last the 20K service intervals VX expect from Fully synthetic oil.

    yep. as i only do mainly short runs i always do oil + filter changes at 5k. if it was a newer motor it would get the full synthetic but the old sow has to make do with what she gets.
