Question Manufactures Branded Oil or Not

Hi All,

I hope im not opening a can of worms here BUT, I went to buy the Oil for my VP 4.3GXI yesterday and at just shy of 80 for 5L i thought that was a little excessive (baring in mind thats the VAT Free price).

I have been told that using a good quality Synthetic Oil of the same grade will be the same as using the Manufactures Branded Oil.

Anyone got any views on this?
