    Try to use the same oil that is in the engine,that is if you know what it is.

    If not use any oil as per specs in vehicle service book.

    I wonder why you should be needing to top up the oil. What oil change interval are you doing?

    Penrite Enviro C4 5w30, C1 in the same grade is also OK.

    Only if it has a DPF, which I doubt it does.

    The oil needs to meet or exceed Ford spec WSS—M2C913-B Or C for a non-DPF vehicle, or Ford spec WSS-M2C934-B if it has a DPF.

    How do you know if you have a DPF?

    Check the eighth digit of the VIN, F & N is without DPF, G & M is with a DPF.

    Or have a look at the exhaust as it passes under the passenger footwell.

    Is it correct if in doubt choose the DPF oil and it will work fine in a non-DPF vehicle?
