Confused


Is that for the DPF version Mike?


All "C1/2/3" oils are low ash for DPF... I believe Embarassed

Even the non-DPF D4 oil spec is for low ash

I had hoped there was something I could just grab from my local Halfrauds or similar. All this is giving me a head ache. Sad

This is the cheapest place I found for Shell C1 5w-30, 5 litres for £25.80, 1 litre for £8.20
Ordered 7 litres Thursday and it arrived Monday with free shipping!
As cheap as £5 a litre if you order enough!

I assume it is but it does not say C1 on the bottle image?

Was ordered at 11:40 and was in SWMBO's sweaty little hands an hour later. I got a phone call when I was out running asking where we were. Poor driver prob wondered what was going on, and whether I'd survive!! Laughing Laughing

I know but it was handy and I was only after 1ltr as a top up bottle to carry in the car. It's only a couple of quid more for just one ltr cf the tyre place. I'm not getting into the realms of changing my oil so don't need more. Whistle

Hunters/Guava use the same stuff, or did last time mine was serviced.

I think mine gets the 913 rather than 934 as it’s non DPF

C3 has the HTHS higher than C1 an C2, that means more viscous friction, not good for the rotating bearings issue.

C2 has SA and P (phosphor) Higher than C1 (not good for the DPF)

If the C1 isn't available, you can use the C2 but C1 is the best oil for our TDV6

^ Thanks for that - useful post
I checked my Service invoices last night - garage uses C1 (Hurray - my D4 has no DPF), checked my Top Up oil that I have been using for years - Castrol Magnatec 5W 30, but cant see C reference (Boo) - but only ever used in very small quantities (D3 / 4 never oil users) between changes so assume will be OK.

5W30 C1 on order as Top up oil Thumbs Up
