To top up either 5w-40 or 10w-40, they will all mix

Cheers

A good 5w-40 synthetic is fine for all year round use and we would recommend one of these.

Yep 10w-40 semi is fine with regular changes.

If you want to go better use a 5w-40 synthetic.

Cheers

We tend to recommend 5w-40 but any of these 0w-40's should be fine

Hi Oilman,

Just bought my 98 VTR
140k on the clock, but told on a second engine.
Not sure what's in it, but I want to drop the oil and do the filter.
I will only be using it as a to and from work car, so about 7 miles in the morning and the same back so not much time for the engine to really heat up.

What would you recommend?.

I would go for a good 5w-40 synthetic all year round use, this will get to work and warm up fast.

Loads to choose from, Fuchs, Motul, Mobil, Silkolene etc here http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx

Cheers

Guy

Quality route is for a 5w-40 synthetic, these will get to work fast on those cold short journeys and will protect better then a semi when you want to give it beans.

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