Dont fanny about with oils mate


if its a desiel put desiel oil in it, it might run ok but who knows the damage you'll do with the wrong oil


For the sake of 30 quid just get the right stuff!

And im pritty sure it needs to be desiel oil!

mobil oil is getting popular now as you wont have any issues with it,use it in garage.:banana:

you will be fine with mobil 1. 5w30 fully synthetic is the right spec for your car.

It will be too thin, and you will just burn it off. It will not do any damage to the engine. Its just best to put the correct grade in.

you use a thinner oil based on the ambient temperatures your car is exposed to during the year

if you read spec sheets then in this country your recommended oil might be 10/40 semi synthetic but in russia for example it might be fully synthetic 0/40

the thinner the oil the more likely your gonna burn it off and the more expensive it is going to be to keep it topped up
