Car is a civic vti '99. my car manual says API sj or above. Web says my car can also take ACEA a5/b5.
I have put castrol magnatec c3 in the car. The product box does say 'for petrol and diesel cars with catalyst' however it says passed test for API sn so I'm assuming on that fact alone it is deemed correct for my car since my car can take API sj or above?
I am just concerned about the c3 label which seems to suggest the oil is especially formulated for deisel cars with catalyst whereas mine is a petrol with cat removed. Also for acea my car is a5/b5 so whereas this is c3.
Basically just double checking these are not a problem and provided it has past tests for api sn, it doesnt matter what other labels are or are not there? It seems it would be suited for deisel cars with catalysts but not required?
