Hi guys!

I get the viscosity of the oil for our zeds should be 5w30 fully synthetic as a general guide.

My question is what ACEA standard is needed? Bought some Castrol edge 5w30 with ACEA standard ‘C3’ but looking up on C3 it states it can be used in Diesel engines with a DPF but also can be used in petrol engines…

have I bought the correct oil?

yes C3 is recommended by Nissan

I think C2 is actually closer to original Nissan spec for the Z33 in terms of HTHS viscosity in mPas (2.9-3.5)


Although C3 certainly won't hurt, especially if you don't have an external oil cooler and drive the car hard.
