Default Low saps oil is it essential,

Hi all been a while, going to service the beast next weekend and I've noticed there's two promos on at ECP this week 25% off service parts which makes oil, fuel, air and cabin filters about 25 quid there is also 30% off castrol oil, which brings 5w/30 fully synth down to 24 quid the crux being that its not low ash/saps.

I've a 06 2.0 Hdi SW 136 with 138k on the clock, is the low ash imperative or would the fully synth castrol do the job??

Any advice taken.

If it has a DPF yes.

Well that must be the speediest reply I've ever received! I had a feeling that would be the answer, and I suppose 20 saved now may cost 100 in the future.

Thanks for the advice.

Amazon Amazon

Not as scary as I thought it was going to be, I used the Halfords own low ash pug specific last time that was about 40, but for this price I'll put the Total in.

X2 on the low SAPS oil!!! You don't want that DPF bunged up!!

But, it may be worth considering Asda oil. Now don't laugh yet!!!

Depends on what grade the hand book spec tells you but Asda do 5w-30 fully synth, ACEA C3, low SAPS. It's the correct spec for my car. And it's 20 for 5ltr. It's brewed by Comma oil and re-distributed under Asda name.

Best to research first and make sure. I'm not sure what the detergent level is yet.

Sounds good I will check what spec mine specifies in the book, found the Total Ineo Quartz for 27 squid delivered, but as an Asda shopper I will take a look at that tomorrow night, much appreciated

I've always used neilsencdg, because they're the cheapest I've found for decent oil.

Either

Total Quartz Ineo ECS 5W30 Engine Oil Peugeot, HDI Citroen 5L

or

Total Quartz Ineo ECS 5W30 Engine Oil 151261 HDI Citroen - 5 Litre | eBay

Essentially works out to the same, either way I think.

At that price, for me, it's usually 30 or less for an oil and filter, bargain.
