Engine oils for Opel

The special manufacturer approvals for Opel come from the parent company GM (General Motors). Opel makes it easy for its customers to access the release list. The specifications are manageable. The new "dexos2" specification applies to most cars from model year 2010, which is also backwards compatible for petrol and diesel engines before model year 2010. With our Oilfinder you will find the right oil for your Opel. The ADDINOL engine oils for the current approvals and most popular vehicle models you will find below also summarized.

Which engine oil can be used for your Opel depends on the year of manufacture, the engine, the fuel used and a possible Longlife service. Opel makes the selection quite simple due to the few specifications. The model year usually determines which oil is the right one for your Opel Astra, Opel Corsa or Opel Zafira. For safety reasons, check with our oil finder which oil suits your model.

Longlife oils for Opel

There are some Opel models that are equipped with a Longlife service. This enables longer oil change intervals and is particularly practical for frequent drivers. The oil can be operated up to 30,000 kilometres and does not have to be changed after 15,000 kilometres. If you have an Opel with Longlife service, the board computer will calculate the next oil change interval for you.
