Euro V or Euro VI engine in Giulietta MA
I'm a long time lurker and absorber of much wisdom, it's amazing this site is so well supported with such great knowledge and commitment to the Alfa cause.
My question is quite simply do I have a Euro V or Euro VI engine in my G. It is a September 2014 car with the 170 MA engine, pre-facelift externally but with internal facelift (eg. DAB radio). Some sites suggest I have a Euro V engine and need 5W40 ACEA C3 oil, other sites suggest it has a Euro VI engine and needs 0W30 ACEA C2 oil (as does the handbook - recommends FIAT spec 9.55535-GS1). Any thoughts?
In my old days of maintaining my TR6 it was simply a case of looking at the engine number and that would help narrow down which fittings / specifications I needed, but it seems that isn't where you guys look for definitive answers, and that 2014 was a bit of an overlap year for the engine, so before ploughing on with an oil change I'd like to make sure I have the preferred spec oil to hand.
I'm tending towards the 0W30 oil grade, but if enough people recommend the 5W40, I'm happy to go with the majority / most persuasive!
