15W/40 - 15W/50 - ACEA A2-A3. Duckhams Fully Synth, QXR Premium Petrol Engine or Hypergrade Petrol Engine Oil is what it says in my book.

ahh, so 5w40 would be overkill then. Ive just checked national tyre website, oil change with duckhams qxr 20quid or visco fully synth for 25 quid. Sod it, Im not gonna bother getting my hands dirty for those prices...
