    The factory spec is 5-30 fully synthetic - however a few of us with the 2.5 run 5-40 fully synthetic oil.

    I have used Shell Helix Ultra in mine for the past 30,000 or so miles.
    Don't buy it from the Shell petrol stations though! Last time I checked it was £52 for 5 litres! I usually get mine from Opie oils.
