Hello all,

was wondering if anyone has an idea of best oil grade for a high-ish mileage (150K)  D4-D KDJ 120?

I have read various recommendations from ful synth 5-30 to 10-40 semi.

please any advice, experiences and help welcome

Thanks Nige,

After reading a section from the online 'Oil Bible', I was already eyeing up some 5-30 magnatec in halfords for about 24 a go, so if its the same stuff, I will be heading across town.

While on the subject of running smoothly and asda, I have noticed running on fuel from the likes of Esso and Shell makes a huge difference in smooth running in comparison with the supermarket stuff and also gives better power and MPG.

(The noise from the injectors or lack of it is remarkable)
