The right oil for Alfa Romeo 159 1.9 16V
You can use a variety of oils, but if you have a DPF the acea C3 is essential.
If you do lots of short journeys i'd go for the the 30, and longer ones 40 ( it's slightly thicker once the engine is up to temp, also remember regens tend to thin the oil out slightly)
Depending where you live ( you measure distance in KM) you could also go for a 0w ( i.e if you live somewhere cold like Scandinavia), which is better for cold starts.
I wouldn't go much outside 0/5w or 30/40 though
Any spelling/ grammatical errors are purely there to annoy!
