Default another engine oil thread

Hi All, I have a Late 2008 build MY09 NT Diesel auto (presumably with a DPF) and I'm still confused (as are most auto shops) about what Oil specs the car needs. Looking at the manual (pic attached) it says that they must meet ACEA A3/B3, A3/B4 or A3/B5 AND API SG (or higher). These specs are not Low SAPS oils that you'd usually need to run in a diesel with a DPF and I've seen comments here in other threads that despite being an "open" type DPF, the NT still requires a Low/mid SAPS oil such as an ACEA C1,C2, C3 or C4. I'm currently using Penrite Enviro C1 5w-30 and seems to be running fine, the question is am I likely to be doing any damage by using a Low SAPS oil instead of the Mitsi recommended spec of ACEA A3/B3, A3/B4 or A3/B5. I know this has been just about done to death, but appreciate your comments / insights. Cheers.

EDIT: I noticed that half of the page has been blanked off, when or by who I'm not sure. I'm guessing that the half shown is for vehicles without a DPF and the hidden half is for vehicles with a DPF.

Thanks good pickup, not sure how I missed that!
The diesel specs are attached now.
They state :


Use engine oil conforming to the following classification:

• ACEA classification:

"For service A1/B1, A3/B3, A3/B4 or A5/B5"

• API classification:

"For service CD" or higher


These specs are not low or mid SAPS Either.

your model may have the open type DPF no pressure pipes connected to the DPF
which means you don't need to use C3 low saps oil
have a look at the DPF and see if there is any pressure pipes attached
you can still use C3 low saps oil if you want just costs more

I thought it was the other way around i.e. MY09 had the open style DPF's before they got rid of it in MY10

Think you're correct bige, no pressure pipes (or sensors) connected to the DPF in mine.
I think I'll keep using the Full Synthetic Low SAPS oil as it runs well on it, just good to know there's no harm in it.

Lucky you.
Err, I think you may have that the wrong way around?


My understanding is the NT MY09 had an open type DPF until late in 2009, then no DPF from MY10 onwards (until the MY17 which gained a DPF). I had a 2010 MY10 which did not have a DPF.

I think you are correct. I will delete it.
