A good 5w-40 synthetic, if you want the best then ester based such as the Silkolene Pro S, Motul 300v, Redline and Gulf Comp here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Cheers

Go for a 5w-40

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

I would go for the Silkolene Pro S, Motul 300V, Redline or Gulf Competition as they are ester based and will deal with track tim a lot better than other oils.

5w flows better from cold then 10w, so I would deffo go 5w-40. Its ideal for all year round use.

Hey Guy,
I bought some Silkolene PRO S as a replacement to my usual Millers XFS and some Fuchs Gearbox oil the other week... what can I say? Already returning some of the highest MPG I've ever got from the car and the engine is smoother from cold. It's not cheap but you get what you pay for in this world and I'm sure I recoup the costs through fuel saving... Thanks for recommending it (whoever I spoke to on the phone). Fantastic service and quick delivery, all the best.

Thanks for the feed back, the Pro S is indeed awsome stuff. As good as it gets.

Cheers

The fuchs Titan Sintofluid 75w-80 would make a fine choice http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-981-fuch...ion-fluid.aspx

Top choice is a 5w-40 synthetic, all year round use. They dont have to cost too much either. Plenty to look at here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Cheers
