Hi all.
My 2005 93 vector sport 1.9 Tid is showing 8% oil life.
As i do alot of miles (700 per week) just wondering if anybody can advise a good oil brand.
Car now has 125K on its back and some people suggest 5w40 as apposed to 5w30 fully synthetic.
Many thanks
Richard

Many thanks for reply Lizzard-t.
Shall i go fully synthetic.
And maybe a 5w40 due to mileage.
If you do yours every 3 months you engine must be sweet as a nut??.
Cheers Richard

My 2008 Tid, 151,000km, I use ELF Evolution Full Tech MSX 5W30. I buy in a 20L container & change every 5 - 6,000km. Locally ((NZ), I buy the oil filter thru our GM/Holden dealer Genuine Mann 93183412, it's cheaper (& better) than the big box generic filters.
