I see, Saxos take more than one filter, some of the later models moved on to cartridge type, thats what you have there. Sorry about that

PM me your order nmumber and I will get the correct filter sent out for you.

Cheers

Guy.

What would you recommend for a 1972 1300cc beetle thats done around 100k, and will be doing about 150 miles per week?

Cheers.

Even with a high mile'er a good 5w-40 synthetic is the quality choice, on a budget then go for a 10w-40 semi synthetic.

Wayne,

5w-40 synthetic for the engine, have a look at something like the Motul 8100 Xcess 5w-40, Fuchs Titan Supersyn 5w-40 here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx If you want to go all out the ester based Silkolene Pro S 5w-40.

For the filter, have a look at some filter foam oil http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-639-clea...additives.aspx

Cheers

Guy

Hi oilman, you live in truro ? I live in Redruth.

What oil and filter would you recommend for a Citroen Saxo VTS Mk2 2001?

It has done 85k miles, pretty much standard at the moment but future engine modifications in mind.

Thank you
Anthony

Live near truro, work in Redruth.

5w-40 synthetic is ideal, 10w-40 semi if you are on a budget. Stock filter is fine.

We have them all and you can same some money by coming in to collect.

Cheers

Guy
