5/30 is what's in the manual for the T30 but a lot of members use 5/40 for a quieter engine. Personally, I'd go for 5/40!

Is the 10w40 fully synthetic.

What is the acea rating of the oil, A1, A3, B1, C3 ?

Best regards

Personally, I wouldn't use the 10W40. (If I were closer, I'd buy it off you for my other car, mind)! The first number, as m500 said, is the viscosity when cold. 10 is thicker than 5. With an engine like the Exy that seems to be "marginal" in a variety of areas - particularly turbo bearings, I think you could do it a lot of damage using an oil with a thicker cold viscosity. It's true that in absolute terms, the oil will be thinner in summer (if we ever GET a summer, that is!) but I think that's probably in the realms of "might get away with it" rather than "wouldn't do any harm".

m500dpp I used to surf horses a very long time ago but now I'm the size of a dray horse it would be cruel, so just to confirm the halfords 10/40 is a no no then and safer than sorry go for the 5/40 then when I do the oil change.i have 2 halfords 10/40 part synthetic ACEA A3/B3 API SL CF that's no good boooo :roll:

Good choice.

A lot of people use Fuchs titan supersyn 5w40 which is available on the internet from mytyres.

Well 5 x 5 litres of 5/40 Fuchs Titan supersonic ordered yesterday delivered to the door today ,I bought 5 as I wanted to see what the service was like from opine oils and all in with priority carriage it was £139.24 so works out at £27.84 delivered when milners was going to be £36 so if you can wait or a few people get togeather it will work out cheaper as free postage on orders over £100 worth a thought

That's common for many cars but by "hot" they mean REALLY hot (like Africa)!
