    Default 3.0 CDTI Oil Consumption.....

    Just a quick one I imagine.........my oil light came on today and I had to put 1 ltr of oil in to bring it back to the level it was at approx 5500 miles ago....do you think this to be on the high side or about right?....my Laguna used virtually no oil between services! Also the only oil I could find,(was looking for fully Synthetic), was Havoline 15/40, again any advice on if this ok appreciated.

    Hey,..........it's only heavy when some boy racer is up the rear end! Usually drive fairly sensible but it is difficult not to use that torque I suppose.

    Seems like i'm unduly concerned then, just seemed a lot compared to previoius cars, all diesel by the way. If I remember right the SRI 2.2 Vec B was a little thirsty on oil but all others.... Shogun, Monteray, Renault all used very little by comparison. Thanks for your replies................

    my old 2.0 GTTDI Golf used about a couple of litres between services, and that was motorway driving. (did 80k in 22 months! fair bit of oil!!)

    15/40 isn't any good to you either, i think if I'm right you need 5/30 fully in that lump, go to a Xv dealer and use either the 10/40 semi @ £10 a gallon retail, less if you are on the trade card, or 5/30 fully @ £20 a gall

    I pay around £8 for semi and £16 for fully.

    On the other hand, this Vauxhall I'm driving is my first diesel, and the first one that doesn't use oil. All the petrol ones galloped oil.

    Mine uses very little and I have never needed to top the oil up between services.
