    Default VXR Oil Grade

    VXR is going in for service tomorrow and was wondering what was the best oil for me to request.

    My dealers have told me it came with 5-30w from the factory and said they recommend 0-30w Mobil1.

    I do a lot of small journeys of only a few miles at a time and often from cold starts, is Mobil1 the best to go for?

    Bearing in mind cost as I get the oil changed every six months due to my type of use.
    TIA

    Vauxhall's "own brand" 5w/30 fully synth is what you need.

    Possibly, but Picador's, who are VXR specialists, swear by Mobil 1.

    43k so far: it works for me. For an engine that had done more than 100k, I would probably be looking at 5W/30 or thicker.
