    Is this oil ok for a 1995 XJR

    Hi Guys

    Quick question hopefully.

    I have a stock of Shell Helix 5W-30 Fully Synth that I bought recently before I sold my previous Mercedes. Is this oil ok to use on my 1995 XJR with 111,000 miles?

    I dont have any recent information on the kind of oil thats been used.

    Thanks

    it would be good for the newer v8 and should be ok in your relatively high mileage 6 too, but i'd think that semi syn. 10/40 (e.g. mobil super s) would be fine going forward which is a lot cheaper. you _may_ find the low viscosity finds a few area to weap out of.
