    As the title suggests. Mobil website states 5w-30 however I have also seen some saying
    5w-40. Can anybody confirm for me what it should be. I have used 5-30 in the past but been told this is wrong by my mechanic.

    Castrol edge fully synthetic 5w30, does the job.

    I used Shell Helix Ultra 5W-40, car runs smooth & quiet. Got it from a reputable dealer on Ebay & saved a bundle!:arco:

    why 5w-40 should you not run 5w-30?
