Can I put fully synthetic castrol oil in my transit van

Resolved Question:

Can I put fully synthetic castrol oil in my transit van

Yes, but the more important factor is the grade. 5w/30 is the recommended oil for a diesel

I Have castrol OW-30 will this be ok
Expert:  Engineering Pro replied 6 years ago.
I would always recommend using the recommended oil! as this is what all of the durability testing would have been performed on. But 0W should be fine, it simply means it will perform equally at a slightly lower temperature than the 5W.
