Hi what is the recommended oil for C5 2.0 diesel (mk2) 2006?
We are getting in to winter now here in Torquay but don’t expect temperatures to go lower than -2 -4
Thank you

I believe the official oil is Total Ineo ECS 5w-30 for the DPF equipped cars.

I usually find it on eBay very cheap.

In my experience, 5L puts you right in the middle of the dipstick marks, which is spot on.

I sometimes top up to the MAX line about half way through the year but that is not necessary.
