Re: JTD engine oil

Selenia for Turbo Diesel
But I use Shell Helix Ultra for Diesels.
100% synthetic. 5w-40
The same Shell Helix Ultra but edition for Petrol engines is official oil for Ferrari (there is Ferrari logo on the side of can)

I just think if it is good enough for Ferrari it will be good for Alfa also

Re: JTD engine oil

You can get away with 5w40 or 10w40 - there is very little difference in the viscosity at lower temperatures (the 5 or 10 bit).
Make sure you get fully synthetic or something that is 'longlife' otherwise it'll be useless after 6k miles.
Finally don't get hung up on buying a diesel specific oil - any synthetic of LL oil will be fine.

A decent oil will set you back at least £20 at trade and about £30 retail.

If money's tight, don't but crap - Comma do a decent, failrly priced oil - I think it's called Synter or Syner. Comes from the same refinery as some far more expensive stuff, but without the hype.
