It takes 2.9 litres of oil and yes you should get the left over.

    Will using whip cream void my warrenty???

    On a serious note how much is in a can and how much oil does the engine take if I'm paying for 2 cans can I ask for what left

    Gary;

    You need to make sure you remind them time and time again that you want the remainder or they'll "dispose of it" before you pick the car up..

    Also state loads and loads of times that you want them to use Selenia or they'll use the wrong oil!!

    Not only did they not use Selenia in Carmen, they completely used the wrong grade oil and tried to fob it off as better stuff :thumbd:

    Yup hard work getting an oil change done right at an Abarth dealer, in fact its all more difficult that it needs to be, it was very refreshing to ring my Renault dealer up and have them quote me correctly for the right work without having to explain myself, all I told them was my cars mileage and age and they told me the right information, no additional bits an pieces or confusion, despite my car being an import and so not on their UK service systems.

    More impressed with Renault the more I use them, when I suggested that I was going to phone around for a better price they even pointed me in the right direction to one of their fast fit places with lower labour rates, sure its so they get some of my money rather than none but it helps, with my Abarth dealer I feel when I walk in that I being am transported to marrakesh and am bartering for a good price, when I canceled an appointment for 9k oil change to go to a cheaper dealer they drop the price quoted to me by 40% ::) makes you feel even more like they are creaming you for all they can get.

    My last post was by no means a dig at Abarth dealers in general; was merely a warning for Gary to keep an eye out with one particular dealer :thumb:

    Having called a few dealers and also tried them I'd say that your words are worthy of consideration for all, there is a need to be vigilant, something I am not always the best at.

    With regards to dealer dig's I got presented with a mito oil filter the other day for my APE, when I was doing my oil change..should have checked.  My APE will not take anything other than 5w40 regardless what the dealers say, I am starting to wonder if there has been a small mod at the factory like wider ports etc to lift the thicker oil up as mine threw the dummy out when "THEY" did a 6k oil change.10w50 trying to say the multiair unit was duff..I no longer trust anyone now to do any work on mine ....on a plus note I provide all my parts now and make the coffees so I can stay n watch him working.....on my car gets my vote...different if under three years old.  :-/

    a question for the experts here,
    I'm trying to find an alternative for selenia oil(it cost here about 30 GBP for a 2L container! and very rare)
    I've looked in some Chrysler, fiat, and abarth forums in the us, and they have a different oil spec requirement for the 1.4T multiair engine.
    they have a larger oil sump, so the total amount of oil is 3.8L(including filter), instead of 3L in Europe. that's the only difference that I know of.
    the requirement is 5w40 spec MS-12991, most recommended oil is SHELL Helix Ultra 5w40.
    it's approved by Ferrari, and recommended by the American FCA dealers, so why not?

    any thoughts?
