    Default Oil Question...

    I'm just looking at doing an oil change on my GF's car, its a Ford KA (Sorry I know I shouldnt swear on here, dont think the filter picks it up yet LOL) and it says to use 10w40 or 10w30. Now it doesnt say wether to use fully or semi synthetic oil. So I asked on a KA forum. I have a 5L bottle of 5w30 fully synthetic oil in the garage and was just going to use that! It's been over 4hrs now and out of the 5000+ members they claim to have... only 4 have popped on! LOL.

    So I'll ask here as I KNOW I'll get an answer and someone will know....

    So someone has told me to use semi. Why use semi instead of fully synthetic oil?? What could go wrong???

    10w40 is a semi-synthetic oil
    10w30 is a fully synthetic oil, an unusual specification, and is the recommendation

    From memory Ford specify that the oil must meet this :
    Ford WSS-M2C913-B

    Any 5w30 oil should meet this
