    I've not had mine on the road long but ive been using 5W50 Motorsport or 10W60 Millers, no issues cant see there being any as they are in specification for cars designed to run 10w40 stock... which CA18s are

    Go 10w50 tops, 10w40 will be fine.

    Just use a good fully synthetic 10w 40, as manufacturer suggests. :)

    I've got to do about a 1000 miles to run it in and have some millers for when that's done I'm guessing a semi synth won't hurt for running in,I just don't want to take any chances with the amount the rebuild has cost me
