At present I am using Shell Helix Ultra 5W-40 Fully Synthetic.You'll need 5.4 litres,so a 5 litre pack falls irritatingly short!I buy 5 litres from Smith and Allan's eBay shop for £38.50 POST FREE.They offer outstanding service.It usually arrives in two days- before Paypal payment goes through my account!
Last week I bought 4 litres Shell Helix Ultra 15W-50 Fully Synthetic for my Alfasud.£25.24 and it was delivered in two days in the middle of the backlogged Christmas cards.They don't use Royal Mail......
I have in the past driven a round trip of 90 miles to my dealer where I pay £40+ for Selenia StAR 5w-40.I've even used Halfords Fully Synthetic on occasions now.I think I'm sold on the Shell product now.
The engine never uses any oil even on long continental trips,whichever brand I've used.
