Where to buy TA oil from

Where is the best/cheapest place to buy the Selenia Digitek 0W-30 Twin Air engines oil from? I'm hoping you folk have got some advice from your own experiences of buying the oil, either on-line or from a high street retail supplier, as to where the best place is. The Fiat dealer that I bought my TA from very unhelpfully changed franchises a few months after I bought the car so I don't think I can go back there for the oil, and in any case, is a Fiat dealer the cheapest place or will I be paying over the odds? Any advice as to reliable online outlets?

I could top up with another brand of 0W-30 oil I guess but as it is still under warranty I thought I had better stick to the 'proper' stuff.

My TA has used about 2/3rds from the top to bottom marker on the dip stick in 9 months and 5000 miles - is this normal for a brand new TA or should I be asking questions under the basis of the warranty?

My experience suggests that, if broken in carefully, they should use virtually no oil.

Re: Where to buy TA oil from

This is EXCACT the same oil, from the same scource.
Petronas labels a small amount of this oil as Selenia Digitek P.U. 0W30, but again it's the same oil, same specs, everything....

OK, so its probably me, but where do you make donations? - I've looked at every link across the top of the website and can't see one that mentions making donations.

....and what % discount do you get?

I think it's 10%.
Shop4 charge postage and it can often work out expensive even with the discount.

Ebay might be a better bet or there are a few alfa specialist online the sell the stuff too.

Re: Where to buy TA oil from

Petronas is a Malaysian company founded in 1974. They have been making Selenia oils for Fiat since 2008 I believe and are now the parent company, see:
https://www.pli-petronas.com/uk/prod...tronas-selenia

Surely other manufacturers make oil of the same spec as Petronas. All car engine oils have to confirm to European and US specs. SAE & ACEA if I'm not mistaken.
