    Semi will be dead in a few thousand miles.

    You should put nothing but fully synthetic in a modern diesel like the CDTi.

    Thumbs up

    I've always used Vx semi-synthetic, bought trade club price 4 bottles at a time in all my past Cavaliers (petrol & diesel), Vectras & Omegas.
    I currently run an Omega 3.0 v6 & a factory LPG Vectra, the oil in the Vectra looks like it was put in today, even though its done about 8k miles!

    it seems to be agreed on here that 5w-30 fully synth is an optimal oil for all Vectra 'c's, irrespective of whether diesel or petrol, turbocharged or naturally aspirated,

    5w-30 fully synth usually, but its odd as my engine in the Renualt is supposed to use 5w-40
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
