Read lots on here and still confused as some are saying Dexos 2, some saying Dexos 1 Gen 2.

Just called my Vauxhall dealership as need first service and they are saying Dexos 1 Gen 2

The owners manual on my.vauxhall.com where I've registered my 68 reg 1.6T says dexos 1 gen 2:

The handbook for my 17 plate clearly says Dexos 2 but the dealer insisted that it should be Dexos 1.2. To clear this up I wrote to Vauxhall who confirmed that we should be using Dexos 1.2.

My handbook states this for the D16SHT sidi engine.

It seems impossible to get the correct literature, stating the correct oil for my engine D14XFT my19. The handbook below states only Dexos 1 Gen 2 and the tsb for the 0w20 oil does not list my engine. On my 1st service a couple of months ago they used 0W20 (0V04001547) or is it (0V0401547). Wouldn't like a zero missing on my bank balance.
The numbers are both different on each document.

I hope my dealer has been putting the right stuff in it - seems OK so far.
