Fully synthetic Dexos 2 certified.
Above 25deg C ie most western European countries it's 5W-30 or 5W-40 viscosity.
Vx dealers sell 5 litres of GM Dexos 2 for about £90. That will leave about 1 litre spare for top ups though I have never needed to.
Watch out for fakes if you go to markets or ebay. They will kill the engine.

Are you changing early?

I have decided to use Castrol 0w30 Dexos 2 in mine. I think it is better than GM 5w30 the way i drive my Corsa. Good lubrication during a cold start is very important for turbo equiped engines.
90 £ for 5 litres of oil is very expensive, i think. I have paid 60 € for 4 litres of Castrol Edge 0w30 Dexos2.
