OK, I will be doing my first engine oil change this weekend on our newly purchased (2nd hand) 2008 ST 3.0. I'm still awaiting my manual from Ebay so I need to pick your brains again.

What is the suggested oil and weight to use and how many litres does the '08 hold

If time permits I would also like to do the drive line fluids so I have a starting point and again would like to know what oils and what volumes needed (manual transmition).

Transfer
Gear Box

I've always been a keen user of Nulon oil additives, is there any issues if the appropriate one is used in the appropriate area?

I have a 2004 gu3 and use delo400 usually, but my work has the 08,09,2010 models and use the nissan stuff, 10w40 semi syn nissan product, and for the sake of a few dollars use nissan filters you will be glad you did. The work vehicles are in the desert on oil rigs and get the hell belted out of them so its a good test for thre nissan product.
