    Mobil 1 engine oil?

    Hey people, wondering if anyone can help me out;

    Ive been through the internet and noticed a lot of good reviews from people using Mobil engine oils, i was due for a change in my car and so i brought 4 litres of 0w/40 from my local Asda.

    They have dates printed on the bottom/back of the gallons, are these somekind of expiry dates, they read 05/03/10?

    & i not sure if ive brought the correct grade, i have a 1.6i twinport Vauxhall Astra 2005, ive looked through the manual and could not find a grade.

    Thank you

    I think the date is a date it was put into the bottle...

    really good site thanks,
    yeah it seems to show 5w/30

    however i called Mobil and was told 0w/10 and that 4l would be required

    and castrol recommends i use 0w/30

    & the halfords site shows that i should use 5w/30 if i buy halfords brand oil or 0w/40 if i buy Mobil oil

    whats the difference anyway? can it cause problems if i use the wrong oil grade

    When I had a Porsche Boxster I was told that I could only use Mobil 1 oil , in fact £135 for each service! Even at Halfords it's about £50 for 5 litres.
