Question on oil??

Had a service about 4 months ago where the oil was changed, i have obviously had to refill the oil a few times since then, and the chart in halfords says that the selespeed should be run with 10w60 or 15w40. where as the normal 2.0ts it suggests 10w40. What is the reason for this? and also i have been refilling with 15w40 fully synthetic mobil oil is this ok with the oil used in an alfa garage service.

Mobil don't make a 15w40 synthetic.

10W60 or 10W40 is what you should be using.

Re: Question on oil??

sorry yeh its 15w50,

is it ok to then top up the oil with the consistancy you suggested on top of the 15W40 fully synthetic. Does anyone know of any reason that halfords would suggesta differant oil for the selespeed version? Chears.
