    Default 2008 1.2 turbo petrol oil specifications

    Hello

    I have a 2008 Allure with the 3 cyl turbo, the only engine option in Australia. Great car. Bought in November 2017. Very happy with my decision.

    Time to think about looking after it. With 12 months/15000 Km between changes, and the recommendation to check and add oil (if needed) between changes, I'm a little confused about the specification to buy. I've done 6000 since I bought it, so I suppose I should check the oil even no red lights have turned up on the dashboard yet!

    The manual for the 2008 mentions three oils

    Peugeot Oil reference B71 2312 Synthetic SAE 0W-30
    Peugeot Oil reference B71 2296 Synthetic SAE 5W-40
    Peugeot Oil reference B71 2300 Semi-Synthetic SAE 10W-40

    The manual is totally uninformative about which to use. I may assume perhaps that they could be different for Europe or the Turbo diesel, but who knows? Sacre bleu and merde.

    Any suggestions as to which to use? Not really fussy about using a particular brand.

    Cheers

    I'd forget completely about both B71 2312 and B71 2300.
    The best in terms of protection and resistance to shearing and evaporation is the B71 2296, which is the equivalent to BMW's spec "Long Life 01" recommended by BMW for their prince engines outside of Europe.
    If you live in a cold climate you could always go for 0w30 or 5w30 but stick with BMW LL-01.
    The B71 2312 as well as the B71 2290 are the equivalent to "BMW Long Life 04" which is a spec that puts the catalytic converter before your engine and thus turbos tend to fail at around 100k if you live in a hot climate due to the oil being unable to offer the proper protection.

    See for yourself the priority of each spec in Peugeot's own words

    Hope this helps.
