if you would like any oil advice or a recommendation for your car please feel free to ask here and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

To help us to give the most accurate advice possible we do need some information about your car. e.g.
Make: Peugeot
Model:
Year:
Engine type:
Performance modifications:
Driving style: (road / off-road / track etc)
Any other information that may be relevant: e.g. approx BHP if modified, oil temps if known
What recommendation are you looking for? Engine, Gearbox, Diff etc.

Any oil we recommend is available to buy from us (if you would like to) for delivery throughout the UK and many destinations in Europe. We stock oils & lubricants from 9 major oil brands: Amsoil, Castrol, Fuchs, Gulf, Millers, Mobil, Motul, Redline and Silkolene, so we can supply fluids meeting the vast majority of manufacturer and international specifications.

Peugeot Forum members get a discount of at least 10% on our usual prices... just choose "Peugeot Forums" as your club when registering on the Opie Oils web site and enter your forum username.

Finally, if there are any products we don't stock and you have difficulty getting hold of elsewhere, let us know and we'll see if we can stock them.

We look forward to being of help!

Cheers

Technically you need an oil that meets the Ford 913B specification and our selection is listed below.

Ford Engine Oil - WSS-M2C 913-B
***
They are fine for normal use in your car, but if you want oils that give the best protection (and if you are out of warranty, as Ford will not officially allow these oils to be used, even thought they are a much higher specification that their 913 spec oils) Motul Eco-Energy, Fuchs Titan Pro C1, Castrol Edge, Millers XF, Silkolene Pro S, Motul 300V, Amsoil and Redline will give much better protection.

I just bought a 2005 407 sw with a v6 petrol engine 3 ltr, the car has 100000 km's on it and has been serviced by a dealer. My question is can I run castrol magnetic 5w40 or 10w40? but when I rung the dealer they say only use full sync oil,with a c2 class as this will clean the engine better ect ect.
I would like to get your oppion please.

I think what the dealer was saying is that you can pay them loads extra for an oil you don't really need :)

C2 is a diesel spec, it's fine to use in petrol engines, but not necessary and won't really clean the engine any better than a good non-C2 oil. My information says that it should be a 5w-40 meeting the ACEA A3 spec (the petrol one). 5w-40s tend to be synthetic, but not always and there is no specific requirement listed for it to be a full synthetic. A 5w-40 is the best option and what I'd go for, but a 10w-40 should be okay.

5w-40 engine oil | 5w40 oil

Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Motul 300V, Redline and Gulf Competition. The Motul 8100 X-Cess, Millers XFS, Shell Helix, Fuchs Supersyn and Mobil Super 3000 are good, cheaper alternatives.

If you want a 10w-40, I would either go for the Fuchs XTR, Magnatec, Shell Helix, Millers XSS or Motul 6100

Make: Peugeot
Model: 307
Year: 2002
Engine type: Diesel 2.0 , 90 BHP
Performance modifications: NONE
Driving style: (road / off-road / track etc) - London + Motorways, ROADS :)

Any other information that may be relevant: e.g. approx BHP if modified, oil temps if known
What recommendation are you looking for? Engine, Gearbox, Diff etc.

What oil is recommended, how many L do I need and an approx cost please.
A mechanic told me he will have to look before recommending the oil for this car because it seems that these models come in two different versions (???) do for some reason it maybe needing a different type of oil. - Strange, so I thought I might ask here maybe you could give me some guidance.

Thanks!

Hi

According to my information, the two versions only came along later than 2002. Yours is a bit simpler, it needs a 5w-40 ideally.

5w-40 engine oil | 5w40 oil

Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Motul 300V, Redline and Gulf Competition. The Motul 8100 X-Cess, Millers XFS, Shell Helix, Fuchs Supersyn and Mobil Super 3000 are good, cheaper alternatives.

As a budget choice, a 10w-40 will be fine and I would either go for the Fuchs XTR, Shell Helix, Millers XSS or Motul 6100

Hi

It's not something we sell, but I know it's not the best or the worst on the market. The synthetics are, to my knowledge, all mineral based ones, rather than genuine synthetics.

ah so its pretty mid range but could do better...most likely take advantage of the offers you have on, on payday, just before it ends if i got the dates right :thumb:

Yes, that's about it, but kind of lower mid range I think. There's always some sort of offer on our site and I expect there will be a good one over the bank holiday, if that helps.

If you get a car serviced at a garage, it's still worth buying the oil to take along with you. Firstly you know what goes in there (we get a lot of calls off garages that want a 205L drum for under £200, so less than £1 a litre, we wouldn't sell something that low quality) and the other thing is that garages often charge massively inflated prices for the oil, the really basic stuff we won't sell may well cost you £40 for an oil change.

Cheers

Tim
