Re: 500X - engine oil

Yes, must admit I'm being lazy and using the same main dealer I have in the past, who have been effecient and competent. But as it's now out of warranty, will use a local indy next time.

Re: 500X - engine oil

Can also use Millers 7997 0w30 C2, as also is FIAT 9.55535-GS1 spec. More handy in 5L Jerry can.

Re: 500X - engine oil

I have kind of split the Fiat / Petronas divide.

Petronas do the official Selenia Digitek - SAE 0W-30 ACEA C2

They also do the Petronas Syntium 7000E - 0W30 ACEA C2 API SN - 5Ltr - Fully Synthetic

If you ask Petronas technical they will tell you to use Selenia Digitek. I can understand this from their point of view but (contrary to my old standpoint of some years ago) I've gone down the Syntium 7000E route.

I think what is key for any oil you choose is that is a C2 and not C3 rated oil. How Shell/others can say they have C2/C3 rated compatible oils I don't understand as C2 specs are different to C3 specs. I've tried asking them but they can not really qualitatively answer. But if you ask the likes of Castrol they will say C3 is not compatible and will refuse to recommend.

All I can say is that MultiAir engines are more sensitive to oil specification so you need to be exactly or as close as you can to the Fiat OE specifications/approvals as you can.

That must be for the Diesel Engine.

The MultiAir system is very fussy about oil used. Only in theory *ONLY* SAE 0W-30 ACEA C2 oil.

It was 1.4l multiair petrol. It went just fine but I only ran it between official service. No issues with multiair thus far.
