Engine Oil

Does anyone have any advice on engine oil for a 2.0 GT (20000km).The manual recommends Selenia 20-40 ? Is this a good choice, or just an expensive recommendation from Alfa ??

Re: Engine Oil

I'm sure the manual recommends Selenia Racing 10w60 for the 2.0JTS engine, not 20w40.


Many, many threads on here about engine oil though.

Didn't know they did a 20-40! See link.

I use Selenia Racing in my TS. Is yours a JTS?

Unfurtunatly, you can't link to areas inside the Shop4parts site, it just drops you to their front page.

If it is a GT a 2.0 will be the JTS.

Re: Engine Oil

JTS & 3.2 need 10/60 SR. Good stuff. The JTS's get through a fair bit of it (like a perpetual oil change) but the 3.2's are stable with just the odd top up).

10/40 will increase your oil consumption and IMHO, will not protect an engine that runs as hot as the JTS
