The car in question is a 2004 RX8, 231bhp.
And before anyone mentions it, yes, I know it burns oil
Googling this seems to bring so many different answers, that I can't even begin to guess what oil I should use, and how much.
The chap who had the car before me said he bought 5 litres of oil from Mazda for around £50 - If thats what I gotta use, then I'll buy it. But, I fail to believe I have to use Mazda's own oil.
Some people say to use mineral oil, some say semi-synthetic is fine, and others say fully synthetic is what they use.... I've just added what my 330 uses for now to keep it topped up, but what should I be using, and how much do I need for an oil change ?
Apparently, when doing an oil change, you can only change about half the oil as the oil coolers hold the other half which doesn't come out with an oil change - Is that right ? Any way around this ?
