What is the best oil to use in my 50th? I've been searching through and am just as confused. Would this be suitable?




It's 10w-40 A3/B4 and it says synthetic technology but I'm not sure of that is fully synthetic or not. Confused

Any advice please

Thank you for taking the time to reply tyke57nz and thanks for the details about the oil. I'll get some in as it's on special offer at Costco at the moment.
