10-40w or 10-30w fully synthetic for the 24v. Magnatec wasn't recommended back in the past.

Mobil 1 was recommended but that isn't cheap. I'd go for decent brand stuff that you have heard of.

The oil question is one I was going to ask. I seem to only be able to find semi synthetic in 10/40 or 10/30. Only motor cycle oil seems to come in those grades fully synthetic. Vehicle handbook suggests 5/30 so I'm truly confused now :o

I've always used 5w30 fully synthetic on my 24v.
