Ford and BP recommend full synthetic Magnatec 5W30

thirsty around town mate even with gentle driving the 1.6 ti vct has the same power and better fuel economy in fact its the replacement for the 1.8 and cheaper road tax as well but its up to the individual the 1.6 ti vct is a good engine with the same torque at 2000rpm as the 1.8 has at 5000rpm so easier to drive that said the 1.8 is a good engine as well money wise youre best bet is the ti vct and im not being biased its overall cheaper to run but theres a lot of cheap 1.8s out there as the road tax is a bit much for some
