    Default Oil for 150 CDTi - 5w30 any good?

    Or is it 10w40? Got the Vectra today and they serviced it but put 5w30 in.... I thought it would need 10w40?

    5w-30 is the right one - makes a change because a lot will use 10w-40 to save on costs

    A few on here have had to take cdti's back to have the correct oil put in

    Blimey (is that with a trade card?) 5w-30 is £39.95 + vat in my local stealer

    Fortunately you can get it from Auto-Vaux for £16.95 + vat....
