diesel oil??


Recommended Posts

which oil do i need for a service?




What was in it before ? No idea ? How much mileage ? A lot ? 10W40 half-synthetic. Depends how much you want to pay, select brand accordingly, watch out for manufacturers approval/recommendation.


There isn't a major difference between petrol and diesel oils - indeed some company's sell the SAME oil in two different sets of packaging - Castrol for example. Supposedly the diesel oils are better for turbocharged applications + have better protection from lower revs and are more suited for higher temperatures. But any half decent modern oil will do that anyway...


Don't forget to pickup a good oil filter - no halfrauds nonsense. Not many people are willing to believe how much of a difference filter can make. Fram for instance used to be good, but lately I'm not so sure...
