Range Rover Evoque: Engine oil specification

It is important that the correct oil specification is used. Vehicles fitted with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) must use the specified oils otherwise significant engine damage will occur. Specified oils ensure that the life of the DPF is maximised.

When a new vehicle is sold into markets where the diesel fuel has a high level of sulphur content, a DPF is not fitted and alternative oils are specified. See 160, SULPHUR CONTENT.

Use of incorrect oils will result in serious engine damage.

Land Rover recommends Castrol oils. See 195, LUBRICANTS AND FLUIDS.
