2020 C5 Aircross Automatic 1.2L PureTech

Post by BenEadir »

Hi all,

Real newbie question here. I recently bought a 2020 C5 Aircross 1.2L Automatic and I just want to know what oil I need to buy for topping up? I tried looking online but get different recommendations, either 0W30 grade or 0W20 grade.

Can someone please confirm what the correct oil specification for the 1.2L petrol engine is and any particular brand which users recommend?

Thanks.

You'll need to pop your VIN up as specifications are engine and engine variant specific. Please post your VIN in full without spaces - it will be automatically masked from public view after submitting your post & will only be visible to staff. Further, PSA changed the oil specs early this year, so I'll check the current official grade and spec. for you.

In all cases the oil has been changed to 0W20 for the grade, but please note that the specifications (B71 2010) should also be followed as these have a wet timing belt!

EM: 0W20 B71 2010
0W20 B71 2010 (C5)

The officially recommended oil is therefore:

QUARTZ INEO XTRA FIRST 0W20

Thanks @GiveMeABreak, I appreciate it.

So it looks like this is my best option? https://lubricants.catalog.totalenergie ... irst-0w-20

I can see from the service the garage I purchased the car from did just before I purchased it that they changed the wet timing belt (car had 95,000 KM's on it) which is a good thing but they used WOLF OFFICIALTECH
0W30 which may have been the originally specified oil for the car?

Either way, if I'm topping up the oil before my next service should I top up the existing 0W30 oil with 0W20 or should I keep topping up with some 0W30 and then do a full oil change to 0W20 at the next service?

Just change it at your next oil change - do a drain and refill.
