    It's 5w30 oil GM-LL-x-025
    Providing the oil meets that specifcation then you can use any supplier
    Ironically, the GM stuff is usually cheapest
    5 litres from the Parts Department will cost you about £30, so best to buy that and supply it yourself at servicing

    Not sure what engine is in your SRi but if it is a 3.0 V6 CDTI then you will need 2 bottles and for any other engines best buying two anyway
    The spare you can then use for topups until next service

    Yip, you will need two for the 2.0T
    However, it would be prudent to purchase two as you can then use the second one for topups; cheaper than buying single litres until the next service

    Most of the engines will only need one 5 litre pack
    Z18XE
    4.25 litres
    Z19DT
    4.3 litres
    Z22SE Z32SE
    4.75 litres
    Z22YH
    5.0 litres

    You will then need two 5 litre packs for
    Z20NET
    6.0 litres
    Y30DT
    7.25 litres
