That's not a C3 oil, but A3/B4, totaly different specs.
If the engine needs C3, you just can't fill in A3/B4.
Do your homework, before buying something (wrong).

www.castrol.de "schmier index"
www.castrol.co.uk "oil finder".
I prefer the German site, and order my Castrol oil on Ebay.de.

Based from that link u posted it is the rght oil. But the picture you posted it is not. Best thing to do is wait for ur oil to arrive and read back for for fiat specification. But I really don't think if it comes with A3 spec is right and I would not risk it. Sorry to poss worry u

Re: Oil Grade 1.4 Tjet 120 bhp 2008

In fact, an A3/B4 oil gives better protection for an engine, C3 oil is more aimed at good function of the catalyst etc.....
( I removed the catalyst from my car, and switched from C3 to A3/B4 oil....).

Yes you are right but I don't know about it protecting better if this engine states only c3 and not b3 b4 also that's why I didn't buy magnatec c3 because it is not fully synthetic it is mostly mineral oil for emissions. The new bottles say fully synthetic and the older bottles with the same oil inside do not! I even called castrol in Germany and they said the same about it being mostly mineral oil inside and not full full synthetic! I was told if I want full protection go for titanium! But anyway it's all good now so thanks for the help everyone

Well, don't be fooled about the "Full Synthetic" or whatever is on the bottle.
Even with a great amount of mineral oil, it is allowed to be named "Full Synthetic",...
In fact, recently I went from Castrol Edge FST Titanium "Full Synthetic" to "HC Synthetic", meaning Hydro Crack oil...same brand, same bottle, same viscosity, same A3/B4....
And I do use my Fiat engine equiped Alfa what it's made for....hard and fast driving..

Aye! you're not wrong Pete. It never ceases to amaze me how some car owners get so hung up about "best oil" or how threads about oil drag on & on. Some forums actually try to stop this type of discussion about oil. It's been said before for instance that some garages use bulk bought oil for various engines, & the owners who came in for a service are non the wiser what's being used, with no ill effects. Just to add, the same car owners will scrimp on parts that need replacing looking for the best price. We all like a bargain, but buying well known trusted parts really is worth doing.

You are probably right with how engine oil works, it may all be a type of myth based subsject just as unleaded vs Premium. The only issue is that us noobs can only go off what the manual tells us and peoples reviews of the brand of oil used in cars. But yes garages probs do just use any cheap brand and chanrge you the earth for it. But unless im a chemist at one of these oil companies, i have to ask peoples opinion and follow manuals to the letter. Ive seen a brand recently called http://www.technolube.uk.com/ There prices are amazing, website looks nice, packaging is decent...But there seems to be no reviews or usage of their product on the net anywhere. Now it may work just as good, but with myself i need to see how parts are first b4 i buy etc.
