Just had my car serviced yesterday and am getting a few faults sorted out but my problem is which oil they used during the change? Reading on here it appears that the new Dexos 1 generation 2 oil is what should be used. I asked this question to the service advisor who to be honest was more interested in how her hair looked!!?

Anyway I was told that “we always check which oil is to be used”. My service book has been stamped but there is a tick against dexos 2 . I am now wondering if they have used the new preferred oil?. Am seriously thinking of doing an oil change myself just to make sure. Would appreciate any advice

If it was done at a Vauxhall Dealer the correct oil will have been used, but instead of wondering just ask them not her but the Service Manager,do what I do I always ask what oil is going to be used if it's not the right oil I make sure the correct oil is used, and if its from a 5 litre can I always ask for what's left over still in the can of course,them look at the invoice before I pay to see what they have listed,my local Vauxhall Dealer hate it when I book my car in only use them until the warranty runs out then I go back to my local garage.
