@geekonthepc Thanks, that's the proof, same engine, different oil. It shows they have made a mistake..
When I was without car, I read a lot of documents about LSPI. In conclusion, they say, is caused by the chemicals used to keep clean the engine in the oil, so even if u use an highest density oil, the microfilm of it on the cylinder may cause LSPI again, maybe less, but the possibility remains..

No worries, hopefully that’ll help clear things up with dealerships who disagree.

It should help Alessio, but the digital Italian version is still MY17 with dexos2, and the possibility to use ACEA C3 is for both, petrol or diesel, engines. Don't know if the paper version provided by new cars is updated like your.

Just wondering whether anyone has found Dexos 1 Gen 2 oil anywhere else in the UK other than a Vauxhall dealer? Just returned from New York and on a visit to Walmart (Asda) found all makes of 5W/30 oil in Dexos 1 gen 2 standard - Mobil 1, Castrol Edge, Valvoline, even Asda's own brand, both in 1 litre and 5 litre cans. So it's definitely available from most of the main suppliers, just not in the UK apparently?

I just contacted Opie oils who were advertising a 6litre package of Mobil 1 0w40.i gave them the dexos 1 gen 2 spec. And they replied that this oil does not meet this spec.and they do not stock an oil that does.they are a fairly large supplier who I have found know their stuff but the answer surprised me that they can’t supply an oil for a common mainstream car.the oil was on eBay by the way and the 6l. Pack was perfect for my 1.6t.

Looks like Mobil 1 x1 5w-30 is the product that is Dexos 1 gen 2 approved but it doesn't seem to be available in the UK yet
