    Type of engine oil to use - VW polo (petrol)

    Type of engine oil to use - VW polo (petrol) 19th Sep 07 at 10:05 AM

    Yesterday my car beeped at me and flashed up the oil lamp - a great feature I'm not used to having driven an ancient car before this one.

    Having looked at the manual it's telling me to buy some VW engine oil and giving me a code for that.

    In true moneysaving style I would prefer to get my oil from Tesco or Halfords - please can anyone say what sort of oil I need to buy, whether it is best to buy on the VW oil and, if not, which type/brand they might recommend over others?

    Many thanks.
