    Oil for a 2.8 V6 Quattro

    Hi all, I have just picked up a B5 2.8 quattro. It is rather tierd but still drives nice. It is leaking oil and leaves a little puddle everywhere I park it. I havent had time to look into the source of this leak but I know its getting near the lower limit.

    What oil should I put in it? I don't have a handbook

    10w40 semi synth will be fine, or 5w40 fully synth if you want to treat it.
