I am preparing to change the oil in my new to me 2006 Land Rover LR3 v8. Manual states oil needs to be WSS-M2C913B compliant. The manual recommends Castrol GTX 5w-30. Is it safe to use a oil that is WSS-M2C929A approved? I have Castrol 0w-30, M1 5w-30, Valvoline 5w-30 Full Syn and PP 5w-30, all in the garage bought on sale! Is it also safe to assume that if GTX meets this requirements, that these full syn's should too?

Thanks!

I'd use the GC. LR's need a thicker oil used in them. Another good choice would be M1 0W-40.

GC 0w-30! Sounds good to me. Guess I will have another Saturday project then.
