Chris,

If you want synthetic then you are looking at 5w-40 or 0w-40, plenty of choice. Have a look at here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Cheers

Guy

Hi,

The Magnatec is ok, but for not much more you can get yourself a decent synthetic and this would protect and perform better, especially on track.

Have a look at the likes of the Motul 8100 Xcess 5w-40 and the Fuchs Titan Supersyn 5w-40.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Cheers

10w-40 semi synthetic with regular changes is fine, if you want to treat it then go for a 5w-40 synthetic.

Plenty to have a look at here http://www.opieoils.co.uk

Cheers

Just over 4ltr so one that comes in a 5ltr tub is ideal.

Dazza,

If you want the best then look at a 5w-40 synthetic, they dont cost the earth either.

Have a look at the Motul 8100 Xcess and the Fuchs Titan Supersyn 5w-40 here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Cheers

Guy
