Gear box oil 306 hdi

Post by Welshy_Pete »

The correct gear box oil on the 306 hdi is 75w80 and it takes 2 litres.

So does this have to be fully or semi synthetic or no difference?

Thanks

The oil I use is semi synthetic.I dont think it matters though? come to think about it I`ve never seen fully synthetic.

The correct viscosity rating (75w/80) is the most important thing... Try to get hold of some Total BV if you can...

You can get hold of Total BV 75w80 from GSF, for under £10 per litre.

A bit more than that at the dealer but my dealer is so much closer than GSF that it nullifies the difference.

I cannot remember how much I paid, but I do know it is less than my local Peugeot dealership. Last year, when I got some for Gracie, the dealership was about £2 more a litre.

EDIT; just done a search, and here we go;

£9.11 + delivery for TWO litres from Neilson oils: Total 75W80

I imagine if you add some engine oil, you could get it over £50 and get free delivery.
