    Would always recommend genuine vauxhall oil. If you don't want to pay the dealer price, you can get it off eBay for a good price...

    I am about to put some Fuchs Supersyn 5W-40 in my GSi. It was less than £30 for 5 litres, so I bought a top-up bottle as well, plus filters, etc. I ordered it from Opie Oils. Less than £60 all in, with free delivery! :-) It took a week to arrive but still, that's a good deal, IMHO. Paul :-)
