comma have a better name now than they used to have back in my younger days i remember how the sludge used to stick in the bottom of the sump like treacle but now with better oils they seem to have got a lot better, mine is a mk2 @2005 i may get better fuel results by switching too

yes i checked the handbook and looking across the spectrum back in the summer 10 40 looked ok but its cold here now the winter change looks best for 5 30 better change the filter too [bloody pain]although a mate of mine only does his filter once a year regardless of what he puts in ,but then he is from UP NORTH !! sorry
