1. Standards in force

The classification of the engine oils is established by the following recognised bodies :

  • S.A.E. : Society of Automotive Engineers.
  • API : American Petroleum Institute (As these specifications emanate from an American standards organisation and bear no comparison with the European specifications from ACEA, they are now deleted from all the PSA documents dealing with lubricants).
  • ACEA : Association des Constructeurs Europeens d’Automobiles.

N.B. : In addition to these norms, PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN has defined standards that are specific to engine lubricants designed for its own products.

2. S.A.E norms

Requirements for viscosity grades relating to engine oils.

The choice of the various viscosity grades is again linked with a use which conforms to the types of climate defined in the diagram below.

For example the use of grade 10W40 is limited to the temperate countries (from - 17 °C to + 37 °C) or to a hot climate.

N.B. : For any other application, the grade must be chosen in line with the climatic zone of the country of use.

"A" Very cold.

"B" Cold.

"C" Moderate.

"D" Hot.

"E" Very hot.

3. ACEA standards

3.1. Petrol and diesel mixed oils recommended by PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN

Examples :

  • ACEA A3/B4 : Blended oils specific to certain direct injection diesel engines
  • ACEA A5/B5 : Blended oils with very high performance, for all engines, favouring fuel economy

The meaning of the first letter does not change, it always refers to the engine type :

  • A = Petrol and petrol/LPG dual fuel engines
  • B = Diesel engines

The next figure does change and refers to the following types of oil :

  • 2 = Mineral oils
  • 3 = High performance oils
  • 4 = Oils specific to certain direct injection diesel engines
  • 5 = Oils with very high performance, favouring lower fuel consumption
CAUTION : Since 2004, the ACEA has imposed mixed oils : A2/B2 ; A3/B3 ; A3/B4 ; A5/B5. Therefore, all lubricants recommended by "PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN" are mixed ; There are no longer any specific petrol or diesel oils.

3.2. Introduction of low ash content oils (LOW SAPS)

Low ash content oils reduce the amount of ash entering the exhaust and so help lengthen the life of the emissions control system.

The ash content changes from 1,6 % in current oils to 0,8 % in these new oils (maximum authorised values).

N.B. : LOW SAPS (Sulphurated Ash Phosphorus Sulphur).

New ACEA specifications :

  • C3 : Moderate ash content
  • C2 : Moderate ash content and fuel economy
  • C1 : Very low ash content and fuel economy
  • C4 : Very low ash content and fuel economy

"C2" oil is a mixed petrol and diesel energy reduction oil more particularly adapted to engines equipped with an emissions control system.

4. PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN norms

The ACEA minimum specifications no longer satisfy all of the requirements of PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN, and particularly for the characteristics relative to EURO 5 and above standards as follows :

  • Savings in CO2
  • Compatibility with biofuels
  • Resistance of the oil to corrosion
  • Emissions control system durability

Compliance with the correspondence table below is imperative when servicing PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN vehicles dating from RPO 11788.

CAUTION : Observe the correspondences in the table below, when servicing PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN vehicles dating from RPO 11788.

6. Recommendations

Use exclusively one of the following oils :

  • TOTAL ACTIVA
  • TOTAL QUARTZ
  • Or any other oil complying with the PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN norms (refer to the restriction tables)

It is preferable to use one of the following low ash oils :

  • TOTAL ACTIVA INEO ECS
  • TOTAL QUARTZ INEO ECS
  • TOTAL QUARTZ INEO FIRST
  • Or any other oil that conforms to the PSA PEUGEOT CITROËN B71 2290 or B71 2312 norms

N.B. : These oils have superior characteristics to those defined by the ACEA standard.

CAUTION : The use of additives in the engine oil is strictly prohibited.
