Too thin, halfords recomended 5w30 to me when i got my 1st cento (and i didnt know much about them) and it rattled like a bag of spanners with that in.
10w40 semi is ideal for our climate, not to thick in winter cold starts and fine when warm in summer.

If you have a Home Bargains nearby, get some 10w40 Gulf semi synthetic, it's only a tenner for 4 litres.
