    Go for that instead. Mine loved it. Nice, quiet and cheap too. You'll need 5.5 litres I think so a 5 litre bottle and a 1 litre. 500ml left to top it up with. Had Magnatec in it when I first got it serviced and it seemed so much louder and clattery with it in.

    Vehicle : Focus

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 1.6 TDCI

    Year : 62

    Mileage : 9K

    Default

    I use vx 10/40 semi synth. Believe its better being slightly thicker in an older engine with higher miles.

    Been using 10/40 semi all the cars life and runs very quiet.

    Also change the oil every 5k. so now on 115k, so alot of oil changes. And its cheaper than 5/30 fully.
