PostSubject: Which oil   6th March 2013, 13:30

Hi all. I always like to have a spare litre of oil to hand just in case.

I know my JCW needs fully synthetic oil 0w30 and I know mini recommend castrol edge, but I was wondering if anyone else has an opinion on what is best to use.

I just throw 5/30 in mine - apparently that's fine too? Either way it's done it no harm and it's a lot cheaper, especially when it's on costco offer!
