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.
ABARTH GRANDE PUNTO 155

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.
