What grade of oil does your handbook recommend? Stick with that and you'll not got far wrong. I would expect something more like 10w40 to be recommended as 5w30 seems a bit on the thin side for an oil burner to me for use in the UK but use the grade that your handbook recommends.

thanks, I've ask a couple of people and have had mixed replies. The oil is from a ford parts dealer shop and I was told it can be used in their diesel cars.. so I thought I'd ask for opinions on here before I buy. I hear tesco are doing 5 litre oil for £5 or something really low..

5w30 is used in ford diesels cos they have ali heads, all zetec engines have to have that spec of oil, DO NOT USE IT IN YOUR ROVER!! use either 15w40 for a straight diesel or 10w40 for a turbo diesel
