True but c3/c2 is going to make very little difference so either will work just fine

I'm pretty certain Triple QX is a hydrocracked oil - google the difference between hydrocracked and PAO oil base stocks.

That said, the 1.2 FIRE isn't demanding regarding oil and it'll probably work just fine, providing it's changed regularly.
Most ordinary synthetic oils use around 50% group 3 severely hydrocracked base stock. And it is legal to call it synthetic. And whatever else is added is usually shrouded in secrecy. It could be PAO plus other chemical additives.


Only racing oils have large amounts of PAO.
