For oil - BobG
Among other vehicles I have just aquired an LDV Convoy minibus (Y reg ) with a 2.5DI engine - I think this is the Ford Transit engine. Can anyone tell me tho oil requirements and change frequency for this engine ? I have contacted my LDV dealer who wants silly money for a handbook ( it has no handbook but a genuine 9500 miles ) I normally use Millers full synthetic diesel oil in my other diesel vehicles - will it be suitable ?

You'll be fine with the Millers, your bus falls into LDV's extended service interval plan, so will probably tell you 12000 mile intervals.
Every other thread here, will say 5000 ish is a better idea.
Did the dealer think you wanted a handbook/workshop manual,VERY ££££, rather than the dashboard, owners booklet, which I think you you mean?These would be a minimum cost item.
PS Don't read Big Van thread, on this page!!

Have you tried a commercial breakers yard for the handbook? Should be able to get you one for pennies.
