More About the C3
You can use Castrol Edge 0W-40 A3/B4 branded oil for changing the oil on all engines in the first generation Citroën C3. The 1.4 16V petrol engine requires the least amount of oil (3.1 litres), the most oil is required for the 1.6 HDI diesel (3.8 litres).

As a small car, the Citroën C3 impresses with its low consumption. The petrol engines consume an average of 4.7L to 5.1L per 100 km, which in turn means CO2 emissions of 109 to 120 g/km. The economical model with a diesel engine achieves consumption of around 3.4L per 100 km and CO2 emissions of 90 g/km. Anyone who pays attention to consumption and maintenance costs will find an interesting option in a Citroën C3 used or new car of the current generation - especially if the vehicle is used in the city and as a second car.

The most powerful petrol engine of the C3 in the second generation even has an impressive 120hp and even the largest diesel beats its successor in terms of engine power.

With as many as 16 engines, the C3 produced between 2009 and 2017 gives you a lot more choice than its successor from current production anyway. Since entering the market, the small car has only been available with front-wheel drive.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.
