5W40. Like Umbongo, I really rate Fuchs Titan. ALWAYS fully synthetic for an Exy, regardless of what brand you use (they need it for the turbo bearings). I've tried Castrol Magnatec, Petronas and a few others but keep coming back to the Fuchs. As has been said, between 5 and 6 litres with a filter change, depending on how much you manage to get out of the sump.HexTrial said:So....as a new owner, whats the current consensus?
5-40 or 10-40? Full or Semi Synth? How much does it take? (too cold to nip out for the handbook :mrgreen: )
Having been on various car forums I know oil preference will always be a mixed bag but I think it's always a good place to start and hear owners feedback.
I used to run TripleQX 10-40 Semi Synth (via carparts4less) in the MG and that really suited the engine, in fact it might even be suitable for the Exy (oh look at me using lingo) depending on what peoples views are. (Still got a load left).

"Oil" await your views eagerly :biggrin:
