I've just been looking at my service invoice for my 4500mile service. The oil that Mitsubishi have used is GT MAGNATEX 10W/40. Is this the correct oil that they should be using?????? :confused:

Magnatec has been used on a few of the dealer services my car has had in the past. I think you get the option of Magnatec or Castrol SLX, the later costing a wee bit more.

Cheers

I would say so, the Castrol SLX (fully synthetic) is the better oil, but for fast road/ general use the Magnatec is fine, you are changing it every 4.5k/ 6 months anyway.

I supply my dealer with my prefered oil. They hapily use my own oil and saves you a couple of quid too! My dealer uses Castol SLX 0W-30 which in my opinion is too thin. And why they use a long life oil when it has a service interval of just 4500 miles :rolleyes:

ring RC development they told me 15w/50 oil and never to use any 0w/30 its to thin and you loose oil pressure when engine really hot
