    I think it also depends whether it is a long life service or not. (not sure)

    I bought some 5W 30 from the dealer to top up (they advised this) due to my car having a long life service done last time...

    Either will do TBH.

    Take whichever is fully synth, is neither or both are fully synth, take the 0/40.

    Although where did you get 0/40, thats a bit specialist as far as oil goes, as in you normally dont find it in Halfords.

    cheers lads

    im not too sure where i got the 0/40 from,
    i dont even know why i have it lol

    its mobil 1

    so 0/40 would be the better option over the 10/40 if but full synthetic?
