    Question Which Engine Oil ?

    I have a 2.0DTi and according to the Handbook it quotes GM-LL-B-025.

    My car doesn't need a top up yet but just incase I like to have some in the boot.

    Without going to the expense of a GM branded oil - what else can I use

    Hi LED.. another local member
    If you want genuine VX oil at a sensible price I will use my trade-club discount to buy it for you.. There are many other long-life oils, check out the oil bible thread, but I stick with VX's own..No warranty prob's then..

    Welcome to the fold mate..

    I use Vx's 10-40 semi in my 2.0Dti, and change it every 6-7000 mls.

    Look on the VX website, there is a list of compatible oils that will still retain warranty. As only specifying their brand would be illegal, as it would not comply with the competition laws in EU. You only have to use oil that complies to the spec stated by VX you do not have to use their oil.

    The GM spec you quote is a LL spec (longlife) which will be a 5w-30 synthetic.

    If you look at the oilmans website, he does a "Recommend me an oil" which is quite good and thus gets you more clued up about various oils and gives very good advice. Plus his prices are good as well.
