For hard use I would look at a good 5w-40 synthetic for the engine, plenty to choose from but Motul and Silkolene are my favorites for performance.

For the gearbox, a good semi synthetic or full synthetic 75w-90.

Cheers

Guy.

Hi,

A 10w-40 semi synthetic wioth regular changes is ideal.

Brand wise, Fuchs, Motul and Silkolene.

Cheers

10w-40 semi synthetic with regular changes is fine, if you really want to treat it then 5w-40 synthetic changed every 8000 miles or once a year, which ever comes first.

Cheers

Guy.

Drive it quite hard every now and then on the road about not much motorway driving.

75w-90 is fine and the Motul gear 300 is a goodun.

For the engine the Fuchs 5w-40 is good stuff. The next step up is to an ester based synthetic, like the Motul 300v or the Silkolene Pro S.

Cheers

Guy.
