I have the same question and the previous post does not really answer it - it just suggests that 5w-40 is okay to use.

From memory, in the owners manual Nissan remommend 5w30.

Neilsen oils have 5 litres of 5w-30 Catrol Edge for £37.99 & the same quantity of 5w-40 TD Catrol Egde for £29.99

I am aware that you need 5.2 litres for an oil change, but I have spare 5w-40 TD Edge as I use it in my S2000.

Any thoughts?
