    Vehicle : Vauxhall Astra-J

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTi

    Year : 2013

    Default

    Vauxhall recommend 5w/30 fully synth long life for all the range of Vec-C engines.

    Some use 10w/40 though - mainly people who change their oil more frequently than the recommendated interval.

    Mines done 115,000 miles, I used to use the GM 5w30 Dexos 2, but this time I've used Castrol Magantec 5w30 (bought loads when it was on offer at Halfords) and the engine's noticeably quieter.
