Let's Get Oiled..


I have '98 145 Cloverleaf currently at 45,000 miles. About to carryout an oil change; can anyone advise me on the most suitable oil to use?

10w 40w semi synthetic selenia should do the trick

That's a very low mileage for a '98!
Well to wear!

Or (because Selenia is sometimes hard to get hold of, and usually expensive) Millers is very well though of. I agree with 10w40 semi-synth though.

Re: Let's Get Oiled..

I am using Texaco Havoline Extra 10W-40 at present. It is a Semi synthetic, carries all the approvals API SL etc, and is £15 for 5 litres at your local garage which is quite a bargain. Selenia is probably technically inferior to this and is a lot more expensive.
