Hi , I read somewhere that 5/30 oil was recommended for these engines, but in the handbook that came with it says to use 10/30 and 5/30 for colder climates -Scandinavia only. What do people use in these engines ? tia Dave.

Well today I drained the sump and changed the filter, I then put in a measured 4L (of 5/30). When I checked the dipstick it was way over the max. (car was on a level) So I had to drain I guess 1L. I thought the capacity was 4 and a quarter litres. I can't believe it only takes 3L. Any advice/thoughts appreciated.
