    If it were me id be putting 0w30 fully synthetic in.
    Vauxhall will usually put 5w30 fully synthetic "long life GM" stuff.

    That's what allows for the more flexible longer service intervals.
    If you want this use theres, if you quite a keen oil changer go with the 0W30 Fully synthetic

    you can use 10/40 if you don't have a dpf and do less than 10k between changes.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    DPF Diesel particulate filter. Have a search. If you have one be a bit more careful what oil you use.

    What car do you have?

    Will, from the link I posted previously

    http://www.vauxhall.co.uk/vaux/owner...do?method=view

    All Vectra-C's from 2002 onwards should use 5w/30 fully synth.
