The car has some issues with its oil level sensor at the moment, so its going in to be checked next week. As I have no dipstick the OBC reports that the oil level is OK - as its half level. I'm not sure its ok and I don't know how much to top it up by!
I still haven't found the tesco stuff - but the higher the RON the better really.

I'm mostly using the 99 rnon shell vpower stuff and I do think it helps.

As to the oil sensor - I'm assuming you mean that the bars are showing half way between max and min and that the check control message is OK. That's how mine is - presumably it will keep saying OK until it reachs min.

Like you I don't really know how much oil to add though.
