    Vehicle : Focus

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 1.6 TDCI

    Year : 62

    Mileage : 9K

    Default

    10/40 semi synth vx stuff. The 5w/30 fully synth is too thin for out dti at that sort of mileage.

    Ive used 10w/40 all my cars life, changed oil every 5k, now on 117k, so alot of oil changes.

    I think it's not so much the mileage (140k is nothing for a DTi), but this engine just likes a thicker oil. It runs quieter with 10w40
