Thanks Tim.

I meant its a year since I last spoke with you. ;)

Anyway, I found some info from Millers that states 10 hours track use and 100 hours motorway use.

Absolutely perfect for my usage. Thanks again.

Hi I am looking for some advice, recently bought a vectra which was last serviced in Oct last year however It had barely done a couple of hundred miles since due to waiting on a DMF and Clutch replaced which was last month, so I am wanting to know what oil you would recommend, looking back at its service history its only been getting serviced/ oil change every 2yrs with 73k on the clock! I will be doing engine oil every 6 month's

Make: Vectra
Model: Sri
Year: 2005
Engine type: 2.2 z22yh
Performance modifications: None
Looking for which grade engine oil for next service.
Driving style: Road, lots of stop start during the week, slightly longer journeys at the weekend 50miles
probably the worst driving style for engine but hey its what I need to do, any advice is welcome

Regards

Kev

Hi Kev

I would use a 5w-40 synthetic and you will find those through the link below.

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

Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Millers CFS/CFS NT, Motul 300V, Redline and Gulf Competition. The Motul 8100 X-Cess, Millers XFS, Fuchs GT1 XTL/Supersyn, Gulf Formula G, Shell Helix and Mobil Super 3000 are good, cheaper alternatives.

Cheers

Tim
Cheers for the sound advise Tim, I must admit I used your sites product finder and it recommended 0w-30 synthetic oil :0

Hi

That Mobil is different to the UK stuff they do.

I would say a good 5w-40 would probably be the way to go, unless you are getting high (over 125C) oil temps or high oil consumption, then a 10w-50 is the best choice.

http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-656-5w-40.aspx
http://www.opieoils.co.uk/c-659-10w-50.aspx

Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Millers CFS/CFS Nanodrive, Motul 300V, Redline and Gulf Competition.

Cheers

was going to use a running in oil but i think im just going to
get 15/40 for the 1st 100miles
then 10/40 for 100-500 miles
then go fully synthetic for the rest of the miles

Yeh I would go with that and when you take the filter out split it to inspect for wear and materials
i do want to do that one day but its easyer to just throw it in the bin and not get messy :)
with a new engine there will be some debris in the oil from the bedding in i may even get a magnetic sump plug just to catch the fines
