    Both..

    you get what you pay for in the end.. I used to use their semi as it was dirt cheap, but the V6 spec is for full synth..

    It's the only oil they use for there extended service intervals as well..Semi must de-grade too quickly..

    As i've posted before.. I use fully Synth. and change the oil at 6-8,000 miles..the engines last forever.. I've had well over 250,000 out of the same top and bottom end..

    i use semi synthetic because i work in a garage and change it very often never more than 4.000 miles, if i was a normal punter who takes his car for servicing and changes it less frequently i would probably use fully synthetic oil.

    As in the other similar thread.. If only people knew the oil price rip-off if you're prepared to buy in bulk..

    I used to use semi..but in 205 litre drums..about 93p/litre..

    with the frequent changes it never really got dirty.. Now the V6 needs the dear stuff..
