Re: Fiat Ulysse 2.0L 'P' Plate.. Engine oil Query..

Should be an rfu engine according to a dutch parts site I've got here. Looks like it's got hydraulic valves like mine (1999 2.0 16v EL - RFV engine). According to my book my newer type engine uses 10W40 semi synthetic oil, so I'm quite sure yours needs semi synthetic as well. Fiat have official Selenia brand, but you pay for it & I'm quite sure it's marketing.
But with hydraulic valves a full synthetic oil like 5w30 (thin) or 5w40 (slightly thicker) can be used as well. Plus point is that the valves fill quicker in cold temperature conditions with a full synthetic oil, minus point is, that if you have high mileage, the full synthetic oil cleans your whole engine from carbon deposits, sometimes parts which you do not want cleaned like the valve seats which might mean pressure loss and that the engine might start using oil. You know your car/what mileage you have and what shape it is in and how cold it is and if your valves tick a bit or not when you drive away in the winter. Good luck with your choice, hope I've helped you.
