Itís not recommended depending on your climate. It the book says 5w30 you can use semi synthetic stuff which is a lot cheaper in the uk or 10w40 which is common over here

Using a thicker oil will lower oil consumption but is very likely to trigger vti faults and limp mode. That's what happened with my daughters old 207cc when I used 0w40 mobil 1 in it
