    Default OIL

    Been to the dealers today with an issue on my Vec CDTi 150.

    I had it serviced last week so enquired about the engine oil they put in.

    Written on the book was 5 30, but they told me they use 10 40.

    Only from year 06 on did VX stipulate that they use 5 30, and from manufaturing mine has had 10 40 so thats what they stick to.

    I'm a tad confused by this, is it just cutting corners and is this oil 10 40 OK for the car?



    Cheers
