Either of those will be OK. Total is the PSA recommendation, but that's mostly a marketing tie up!

Which Total oil is recommended?
I found multiple oils graded 75w80 and multiple specifications. Which one is needed for the car "B71 2315" or "B71 2330"?

Thank you very much

Spec for PSA manual boxes is 75W-80 GL4.
This was Total Transmission 8 gear oil until very recently.
Now Total Traxium 75W-80 GL4+.
Both conform to PSA B71 2330 spec.
