Ah i see it now! The name is just Mobil 1. Good points everyone, this the oil ill be using.Whatever you prefer. The m1 0w30 afe is a great looking oil and will meet the cold viscosity requirement. Its sn plus, so, gf6a, and decos 1 gen 2. m1 dexos lic D10102GH015
While that 0w requirement is literally meaningless above negative 22 degrees it's still in the warranty book. To be honest, Motul has it when it comes to their race oils. Ive used their 300v off and on for 20 years in motorsports but their regular stuff is... regular.
I have a lot of experience with unintentional consequences. There are surprises when you deviate from knowns. An example from the aerospace/DoD industry is 2055 and 2099 aluminum lithium alloys. Superior in every way to 7075...however, anodize is a jightmare with them, and anodize is a very important component in wear and environmental considerations. You may have a superior alloy, and inferior finished product...unforseen. When Geissele designed their Super Precision mounts, their initial runs were aluminum lithium. Now? No mas. It bit em.But.....then we wouldn't have this awesome thread with several epic rants and schoolboy arguments!!! (Finger pointed squarely at myself here)
These things are critical to being a car nut!
I like to use aftermarket because, it's where my history is I guess. Family has an independent place not a dealer....we sell aftermarket stuff. When I buy things from the factory I can hear my Grandfather's disapproval like I go against the family.
Seriously....still a borderline outcast for ever running a dealer service Dept.
But...you are right. Smartest, easiest choice just have some factory stuff on hand. Never think about it, the Alfa specs are really high quality both oil and filter. The best aftermarket stuff is basically the same...cheap stuff not as good.
I have no problem with that, but can’t find a place to order it. The only places I’ve found that sell it are out of stock.Order it online. Annoying, but then, this is an Alfa. You must afford it special consideration. Definitely a pay to play type experience, Im finding.

You will likely be fine as far as warranty but obviously it would be a bad choice to use an SN oil as those oils promote low speed pre-ignition. The number ine killer of our engines.Yes, but since SN Plus was not available in 2018 and my manual says SN I'm sure it would be fine. I will go with the Plus if I can find it. Thanks
