Which Oil?
« on: July 17, 2015, 01:00:52 AM »
I keep getting different advice about which oil to use for the Grande Punto Abarth.
Either 5/40 for pd filter or Selenia 10/50, but also heard could use total racing 10/50.
Which is the best to use?  :o

Abarth recommends the 10W50 Selenia, and that's whats going in my car at it's service.
OEM Short Aerial, BMC Panel Filter, Abarth Tyre Pressure Monitors, Esseesse Springs, De-Wipered Rear,  LED Interior Lights,
Punto Evo Pedals, Punto Evo Gear Knob, Sabelt Tow Strap, Supersprint Exhaust.

Use the 10w50 (same oil as the 500) Tjet engine gets really hot and require a thicker oil. I had once a dealer use 5w40 in my car, which didn't cause any harm but it was only in for 6 months anyway.
