    Default What is the best grade of oil for a 1989 1.6 TD Westfailia California please

    The mechanic suggested 10 40 semi synthetic, but another mechanic suggested 15 50.

    I didn't know what the two numbers meant, but after a little bit of googling, found out.

    Which would folk recommend please ?

    Also, is it worth paying extra for a well known branded oil, or are they all pretty much the same. I don't mind paying extra for a branded product, but only if it is worth the extra.

    thanks

    Brian

    Ive been happy (and so is my 82 air-cooled Westy) using Mobil 1 full synthetic 15-50. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area where we dont really have cold winters or hot summers so I just use it year round. Lots of talk about the duration between oil changes but for the heck of it I change the oil and filter every 3500 miles.
