10w-40 spec B3. is the important bit. pays ya money and takes your choice on brand.. I use part-synthetic as oppose to full. Fully synthetic seems to be overkill to me.

Fully synthetic A3 B3 B4 5W/40 Tesco 8.97 per two litres. You need 3 containers for an oil and filter change. Why use part synth when fully is this money.

We tend to use whatever 10W/40 or 15W/40 that falls to hand.

Hello Blippie
5W/40 is what it says. If we get a spot of cold weather the 5W will make things easier for the starter. Every little helps.
I've no connections with Tesco by the way.

'Swhy I was asking. Mind you , I think 10w is rated to something like -10 or 20 deg C isn't it? Brrrrrrr... Chilly.

Had a flick though the service record of the TD4 today before it was picked up for its MoT, and the oil for the last service was 5w.

If only more people would buy 4x4's we would be enjoying lovely global warming (sorry it's now called climate change) and you wouldn't be shivering or need 5W.
Incidentally until now due to warranty,etc my TD4 has had main dealer servicing so part synth at 54 +vat, key fob battery at 3. Still somebody has to pay for the smart suits and the coffee machine. I am certain I was the first one to remove the engine undertray, its easier to do the ticks on the check list. I did of course know what I was getting and only paid for one service, I think I did well with them overall despite the service charge. Cheers to you. John.
