The manual for my 2.5 legacy wagon says 5W-30 oil.

Will Mobil 1 0W-40 be OK/better/worse??

Dont really understand the numbers tbh but have 8 litres of Mobil 1 kicking around and seems a shame to waste it

Thx

Not the right stuff to use I'm afraid, the 0w bit means it is too thin when cold, the 40 bit would probably be ok, 5w30/5w40 or as some Impreza owners tend to use, a 10w40/10w50 would probably be fine.

Here's what the numbers mean http://www.upmpg.com/tech_articles/motoroil_viscos...

Here's a link to recommend an oil for you car http://www.opieoils.co.uk/t-recommendations-car-or...

Hope that helps
