For the CTR we tend to recommend a good 5w-40 synthetic for all year round use, the best and most popular are the ester based synthetics of the Silkolene pro s, Motul 300v and the Redline http://www.opieoils.co.uk

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

Would the Fuchs Titan Supersyn Plus be better than the normal Fuchs Titan Supersyn for my car before i order one?, thank you...

Kind Regards,

Dazza, the Supersyn plus has additives that allow it to meet specifications for certain VW's, BMW's etc. A Saxo isn't that fussy, so you don't need the specifications met by Supersyn Plus.

Roj, it's all down to what you want to spend. Like most Saxo's a 5w-40 oil is ideal, although a 0w-40 or a 10w-40 is fine.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx
http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-657-10w-40.aspx
http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-655-0w-40.aspx

The Motul 8100 X-Cess is a good choice for yours. You don't need a high performance oil, but it will offer very good protection and value.

10w-40 semi synthetic if you are on a budget, regular changes.

If you want better then 5w-40 or 0w-40 synthetic.

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

Cheers

Go for a 5w-40. Motul 8100 X-cess is a good value choice, Silkolene Pro S or Motul 300V are the best, but expensive

Ideally an oil that meets the VW503.01 spec, or any decent 0w-40, 5w-40 or 0w-30 synthetic.

Have a look at these here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-748-50301.aspx

Cheers

Have just rebuilt engine and have been using Morris oil SAE30 but wondering if you could recommend anything better? I dont really have any issues with the Morris oil, but want to make sure this lasts, as I dont plan on another rebuild or a while!

I used to run 10w-40 semi synthetic in mine, ideal.

Have a look at this one http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-657-10w-40.aspx

1997 Saxo - 1.1i 8v

about 80,000miles

mainly used for short journeys, but gets thrashed sometimes. completely standard engine and exhaust etc.

Just filled with 15w/40 Castrol GTX and new oil filter.

Should i be using a lower grade like 5w/40?
cheers in advance!
