Trying to avoid longish trip to the "local" Citroen garage, and the
cost of the Citroen-recommended Total product, I got the local
motorist's shop to obtain some 5W-40 oil for my C3 diesel.
Yes, it is indeed (synthetic) 5W-40, like the recommended Total Quartz
Diesel 9000. What troubles me is difference in the more minor
parameters of the oil.
The oil I have is API CF; the recommended product is API SJ/CF.
The oil I have is ACEA A3/B3; the recommended product is ACEA
Has anybody any idea of the nature of the difference implied by the
different letters an numbers? A search of the web has yielded no
I haven't used it yet- and will refrain from using it if I must.
Thanks in anticipation,
Citroen C3. It's French! It's fuel-efficient!
