Can't see my car on the my18 onwards list.
Astra 1.6t Sri 68 plate with gpf so will be using Dex 1 gen 2 still.
According to the owners manual you can use either oil on the 1.6 with gpf.
At the time of issue of this owners manual the 1.4t gpf version was listed as D1G2 only. The service bulletin has since changed that.

I have also commented about vauxhall's inability to get things right, on a previous thread, with regards to oil type clarification. The owners manual 0W20 oil type number is listed with too many zeros when compared to the bulletin.
One day they'll get something right Redman lol
i don't know if i posted this note when i posted the original bulletin details but here it is anyway

"Important Note Regarding Parts Availability.

The new oil is currently not available in all pack sizes.
We are working hard to resolve this issue and in the meantime it is permissible to continue using Dexos2 on Diesel Engines,
and Dexos1 Gen2 5w30 on Petrol Engines with the exception of the New CSS Family Engines.
OV0401547 low viscosity 0W20 oil must be used on the CSS engines in order to provide adequate lubrication of the wet timing belt system.
Dexos is not permitted"

I don't recall seeing that valer, it is a bit deja-vu, iirc it was the same situation when D1G2 oil first came out.
I have tried getting a 1litre pack of 0W20 , to no avail.

Yes,the oil was released just before the lurgy struck the world,
so i don't suppose supply has got any better and probably won't any time soon,from what i see the backorder situation on a lot of parts is still a bit dire
