engine oil?

hi

looking for engine oil for my 14 RRS, i thought it had a DPF and the oil required would be castrol 5w30 C2 BUT on checking Castrols web site it says NONE DPF and oil required is Magnatec Stop-Start 5W-30 A5

can some one confirm that my car does NOT have a DPF and which oil i should be using

Castrol web site

I think you will find it does have a DPF.Contact LR dealer & ask which Castrol oil they use.

Is this info not in the handbook?

Hi Wilf

Yes the handbook covers which type of oil is required but for both

DPF vehicles and non DPF vehicles

I think the best option will be to pop into the main dealer and
purchase a 1ltr top up and see what I get 2014-HSE SDV6

Non-DPF vehicles are sold in some overseas markets, all diesel RRS sold in Europe since 2011 IIRC have a DPF 2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, preceeded by a 2.7SE RRS, a 3.6TDv8 RRS, several FFRR's and 2 Evoques.

Just look at the exhaust tailpipes - a DPF-equipped diesel will have shiny clean exhaust tips. MY2016 HSE D SDV6
