Is it 10w-40 semi synthetic you are using? If so you can do much beter especially if the car is used hard. 5w-40 synthetic is the way to go, Motul, Fuchs, Mobil Silkolene etc http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

For the gearbox 75w-90 or 75w-80 GL5 have a look at this one http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-981-fuch...ion-fluid.aspx

Cheers

You can go for a 10w-40 semi synthetic with regular changes or better still 5w-40 synthetic changed every 10,000 or once a year, which ever comes first. http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Gearbox, 75w-80 I would go for this one as it is also Citreon approved http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-981-fuch...ion-fluid.aspx

Cheers

Guy

He is wrong, simple as that. The engine does not change what it is made from as it gets older, so if synthetic is suitable when new, it is also suitable 10 years down the line.

The only time synhetics can cause problems is in very old engines and synthetics that are of a too lower viscosity are used or the engine has been very badly neglegted over its life time, say 10 years or more and oil never really changed, then when you put a synthetic in all it wants to do is clean it out, this can lead to leaks.

I would go with the Motul 8100 Xcess 5w-40 http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Cheers

Guy.
