Oil change time for 2015 1.0 C1.

On various websites, its saying the capacity is 3.1. But on page 408 of the manual:
https://myportalcontent.toyota-europe.c ... 99J92E.pdf
It says 2.6l or 2.8l.


On page 409, it says 0w20 is the best oil to use. But when I put my reg into websites, it says 5w30.

5w30 is what virtually everyone uses and what the CityBugStore sell in all their service kits

You are very lucky having that .pdf file filled with so much information.
Most of us use a good quality 5w-30 it all depends on where you live. Next to that oil chart you have a listing for temperatures, if you were living in for example a very cold climate them 5w-30 would not be the oil for your engine.
Personally l would forget the websites regarding the amount of oil your engine needs. Start with 2.6 litres
or 2.8 litres if you know the oil filter is empty.

Then check the dipstick

WITHOUT STARTING THE ENGINE

You will know if it's low or not.

Toyota sent me an email. I emailed Toyota, Peugeot and Citroen.

Toyota say
" 0W-20 AFE is mandatory"


I think I'll be going with 0w-20


I have also sent a complaint email to Citroen, not really a complaint, but I'm confused about the different info!

I also changed the pollen filter
https://catalog.mann-filter.com/media/e ... 135h5v.pdf

That is the instruction but for a left hand drive vehicle, I'm assuming it goes in the same way (arrows pointing to the car rear) or is this wrong as its right hand drive vehicle

At the end of the day it's your car and your engine so standby the decision you make.
You asked for advice, nobody is forcing you to take it.
In the full members area there is a section about pollen Filters.
If are a full member you can check it out, if not why not sign up it's cheap enough and for life. And lots of
"How to's" etc. Tips and tricks and all l don't get a cut.

Citroen recommends 15w40, Toyota 0w20 if I remember correctly. Any oil in between those grades is going to be fine really, although I find 5w30 is where it's at for us.

The independent Peugeot garage I used to get my 107 serviced at uses 5w/30 as well.

Apparently Toyota say 0w-20 as this is their standard for most cars

Peugeot and Citroen saying 5w-30 as this is their standard for most cars

Dissapointing clarity

What does it say in the books that came with the car? Citroen give the capacity in the Owner's Handbook, and the recommended grade/brand in the Warranty/Maintenance booklet. Other websites may or may not link to the correct information.

Don't over-think this - It's a shopping car designed to be sold/used/maintained in "developing markets". It's not some kind of super-sensitive highly tuned race engine. Change the oil and filter at least as often as stated in the service schedule and use oil that meets Citroen's specifications for the prevailing ambient temperature in your locale. Use premium branded oils if you prefer to do so, but understand that the only beneficiary from this will be the premium oil company.
