I haven’t seen anyone use the 5w20.

You sure? Maybe because ours is diesel it’s the 5w30.

Supposed to be C1 grade for low ash. I don’t use anything else. Get mine from Land Rover dealer.
Oil from my dealer is ACEA C1, but my owners guide and the iGuide says C2. :unsure:
Can anyone shed light on this discrepancy?

The Landrover owners manual that is online on the Landroverusa website states that if you can’t get the oil they say to use, C1, then “You may use 5W30 C2. It is there in black and white under Fluids and Lubricants.
I presume we are still talking about a L494 td6.

I would not use that Castrol EDGE oil for your car. You need the specifc low ash content diesel oil to protect your DPF filter and the catalyst. I would choose oil that has ACEA C2 or C3 rating.
I use Motul 8100 X-Clean efe 5w30 on my Td6.
The Motul 8100 X-Clean 5w40 and
Motul 8100 X-Clean Gen 2 5w40 both would be good for your Td6 also. Liquimoly and Amsoil also has good specific diesel oil alot of people use them. You can find them from Amazon.

I ordered this. What do you think about it?


I was debating between the liquimolly I posted earlier and this one.
