Try contacting your dealer and see if they have any info.

Can someone who has an XR6T please look in their owners manual and read it out for us?

Thanks.

15W/40. XR6T takes 7.5lt (non turbo 7lt). GTX3 and Shell Helix Super are two oils that I know of that meet the grade. I think Castrol is what they use from factory (my car has a Castrol sticker on the window saying when the next service is due).

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

I'm well aware what the manual says. But i want to know what brand of oil comes with the car, as there is no mention of this in the manual.

So how about i get my manual and slap you round a bit.

What Mobil oil is 15W/40? Mobil1 is 5W/50 I'm pretty sure.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.
