    10w-40 is fine for the 1.8, but you want to change it at least twice a year or go for the 5w-30 fully sim if you stick to Vauxhalls 1 year or 20,000 mile intervals

    Don't really think you will see any differences in engine performance if you change to 0 rated oils on a mass produced engine - only in the pocket....

    Vauxhall put 10-40 in my 1.8 when it's serviced, the last time was Shell Helix.
