Oil & Fuel.

I have just had mine serviced by a RR mechanic of 33 yrs. He recommended Semi synthetic. I asked about fuel, he tells me that the same valves are used for home and USA cars so it should not make any difference from an engine wear point of view which fuel you use (petrol of course). I use the super unleaded.
