Re: Another 3.0 V6 oil query
The V6 can use either. 10W40 is the standard recommendation from Alfa, 10W60 for "sporting use".
I use Castrol Magnatec 10W/40 in mine. It's previous owner had it serviced by Mangoletsi, no expense spared, and they always used the Selenia 10W/40.
The Shell stuff should be fine, my thirsty Volvo sups their 5W/30 synthetic (as Shell is my local petrol station and 5W/30 is like hens teeth in Halfords). Thankfully the company pays for this drinking habit!
