Oil grade change

Car Mechanics (UK) - - Help! -

Q: I have al­ways used 10W-40 oil in my 2001 Volvo V70 T5. Last week I called in at my lo­cal mo­tor fac­tors, who said that, given my mileage of 160,000, a fully-syn­thetic 5W-40 would be a bet­ter op­tion. I took them at their word and used it – it is Syn­plus fully-syn­thetic triple QX 5W-40. What is your view on this? SP Skelton

A: The rec­om­mended oil for your ve­hi­cle, re­gard­less of mileage, is a 5W-40 fully-syn­thetic oil. The Syn­plus fully-syn­thetic triple QX 5W-40 is a per­fect choice for the en­gine and I would use it with con­fi­dence.
