Which oil?

Hi, I've tried searching for this but not found anything.
Any recommendations for engine oil, multujet 1.9 120, Doblo 2008.
Opie etc come up with anything from 10/40 semi to 5/40; 5/30; 0/30, fully synthetic???
I found 10/40 semi great in my old jtd 1.9 but any advice on the multijet would be great.
Thanks

Re: Which oil?

You need a starting point of reference.

Your owners manual will specify the oil requirements.

This will be what was defined / recommended / etc back in 2008.

Since 2008 more modern oil grades and specifications have moved on.

I'm guessing that in 2008 Fiat were recommending a 10/40 semi synthetic oil.

Going to a 5W/40 fully synthetic would not be an issues. I've done this for my older Fiats.

Ok great thanks. looking at the service book it seems to say 5/40 fully synthetic, Selenia WR. So I'll find an equivalent to that. Shell, Triple QX ??

Re: Which oil?

I used Castrol Edge Turbo 5W/40. Any quality brand will be OK as long as the basic specs are met.
