Re: Best oil for 1995 Volvo 940 2.3 LPT (in the UK)

B y the way in checking recommendations for 740 turbos I notice that
synthetic is now recommended .Until recently dino oil was suggested .So the
experts have finally caught on synthetic oil is better ,but also remember a
good filter is needed with any oil as well....I got mobil 1 for $AU49.95 at
super cheap here in Melbourne Australia its normally $AU 65.95 .
