    EAI: European Auto Imports at Thornleigh. Give Martin a bell. They can courier them if Camden is too far a drive. You need the VIN to order'
    or
    http://www.dapcoauto.com.au/;
    or,
    if you have money to burn, a Peugeot (Warwick Farm) or Citroen dealer (Punchbowl). Keep in mind that Pug dealers won't necessarily have Citroen parts lists even though engines are shared. Dealer prices will exceed the cost of filters + courier.

    Purflux is the favoured brand. Add a sump washer to your order. Don't even think about using the wrong oil. It will eventually cost you dearly if you do. See other threads here.

    I have bought two FRAM kits from the UK via ebay to get oil filter and sump plug O seal, fuel filter, air filter and pollen filter. I change the oil and filter when the car tells me to and I use TOTAL ineo ecs oil.

    I change the fuel filter about yearly just before I head off on my big driving trip for the year as I find the engine is much more positive for high speed passing with the fuel filter replaced. Also I did find myself almost stuck in Canberra one Easter Thursday with an engine in limp mode due to a blocked fuel filter and only made it to Cit-in thanks to help from AF.

    I change the pollen filter when the air con starts to lose its cool and the air filter every 2-3 years.

    Cheers, Ken

    All very wise, and I guess you don't get much problem with your C5
    Specially the Total ineo ecs makes a lot of difference.

    I do not wait the 2 -3 years and you should not also. Every now and then, do not hesitate to pull those "paper filters" out and gently tap them on a flat surface - you will be surprised just how much muck falls out.

    Ken
    Are you using TOTAL QUARTZ INEO ECS 5W-30? Do you know if there is a 5W - 40 version of the oil or does the difference between -30 & -40 not matter under Australian conditions. Reason I asked is the maintenance book for my C5 specifies 5W-40.
    Thanks, Tony

    Hi Tony,

    I have looked in the shed and I am using 5W-30 Total Quartz ineo ecs. The maintenance book I got with my 2008 C5X7 that I purchased in 2009 says this C2 rated oil is suitable for all diesel engines on page 12 where it is ** as an Energy economy oil. On Page 13 there is a Selection table for Total oil that has a section highlighted for AUSTRALIA where it suggests use of a 5W-40 or 10W-40 oil is more suitable for use in Australian conditions. However as there is no difference in temperature span between the 5W-30 and 5W-40 oil, so I don't really think this matters.

    Also the oil temp gauge in my car has never shown any tendency to rise even when the outside temp reaches up to 46 o C

    A quick scan of the internet seems to show that the ineo ecs is only available as a 5W-30 grade. To get a 5W-40 total oil you would have to go to the Quartz 9000 range of oil which on A3/B4 rated.

    Cheers, Ken
