Citroen c1 1.2 puretech oil.

Post by Meinnit01 »

Hi all. Just joined the forum.
I have recently bought a 2018 Citroen c1 1.2 puretech. But it's only after I bought it that I started reading the horror stories of the wet belt. I was totally unaware beforehand.
It is 6yrs old with 22k. So I got the cambelt done, and I intend to do oil and filter changes quite regular myself.
My question is, what oil is the perfect oil for this engine? Ive googled it but I often get conflicting answers.
I've read 5W-30 and C2 and C3 and a few others, but OW-30 seems to be the more regular answer, but then I find there are several types of OW-30.
Could someone give a definitive answer?

Many thanks.

Ok, so either of the following grades and specifications can be used for this engine, as despite being a Toyota Aygo in disguise, this model actually has a PSA EB2F Euro 6 engine.

EM: 5W30 B71 2290 - 5W30 B71 2290 (C2)

EM: 0W30 B71 2312 - 0W30 B71 2312 (C1C2)

5W40 B71 2296 (A3B4) - EM: 05W40 B71 2296
