I use whatever is recommended in the manual. Also Synthetic over regular oil, as I wait until it gets close to the manufacturer recommended interval (7.5k mi or whatever it is converted to km) and scheduling a service isn't always convenient depending on work schedule.And what kind of oil do you put into the 1.6 engine?
Definitely too much of a hassle to take the oil to get it recycled and time spent lifting the car to only save $5-10 topsWow, I really respect you guys who have the gumption to change your own oil. I did plenty of oil changes with my dad back in the seventies, when I was a kid, so I know how to do it. But nowadays, I can't work up the energy to do it myself, when it's so easy to just take it to the dealer.
