I would go with a 5w-40 synthetic, Motul 8100 Xcess, Fuchs Titan Supersyn but if you want the best then the ester based Silkolene Pro S 5w-40 and you can find them here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

For the gearbox have a look at the Fuchs Titan Sintofluid 75w-80 http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-981-fuch...ion-fluid.aspx

Cheers

I currently use millers CFS 10w40 but the engine just has been freshly rebuilt, and not wanting to take any risks, what oil can I run it in on?

To run in use a 10w-40 semi synthetic (they are all 100% mineral base) and run for around 1000 miles. Something like the Fuchs XTR 10w-40 is ideal http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-990-fuch...ngine-oil.aspx

Once run in a 5w-40 synthetic, if the car is for race use then look at the ester based synthetics such as the Silkolene Pro S or the Motul 300v http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Cheers

I would go 5w-40 synthetic, changed every 10,000 miles or so.

Have a look here at Motul, Silkolene and Fuchs http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Cheers

10w-40 semi synthetic is fine, if you are using the halfords stuff then double up on the changes to keep it fresh.

I would go 5w-40 synthetic for the engine, either the Motul 8100 Xcess or the Fuchs Titan Supersyn 5w-40 here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

If you just want to top up the gearbox oil (not change it) then go for this one from Castrol http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-723-cast...-gear-oil.aspx

Cheers
