    Does that vehicle have a DPF or CAT ? Low SAPS is vital if it has a DPF - which is doubtful

    I just had a look at the oil I use in the same Ford Puma 2.2 TD CAT'd engine - it's Castrol Magnatec 50w30 A1 fully synthetic (y)

    I think I'll go with the Castrol but with the lighter 5w30w
    (I spotted your deliberate error. 50w30)
    Many thanks, Alan

    Ordered Magnatex 5w-30w c3
    Done more checking, Castrol said wrong oil, it must be the 5w-30w A5
