    What oil????

    Hi I know this must of been asked a thousand and one times but iam still quite new to the forum and havent mastered navigating it well yet.

    Anyway, Iam going to oil service my car and need to know what spec oil is recommended, Iam not looking for top label stuff just decent quality trade oil that would be suitable for my 1997 1.9 TDi (110 BHP) A4

    Any advice would be great, all the best Ste

    Thanks for the fast replies guys, I have about 3 gallons of Magnatec 5/40 in the garage, also, how much does it take roughly, 4/5 litres?

    I have also checked on my nearest trade outlet and they recommend a 10/40 semi synthetic for my engine, as its not a PD engine maybe this was the reason?
