    I've checked the service manual, it reads;
    5W-30 (API grade SG or higher)

    I have a 3L bottle of Magnatec fully synthetic 5W-30. I had bought it for my old Cappuccino. In a couple of weeks it'll go into the Copen instead.
    Looking on the label it says API grade SL. A quick check on the Internet shows that SL is higher (newer) than the SG.

    Another quick check on the tinternet tends to show that fully synthetic oils are a better quality, than the semi.
