Hello,

im trying to find the engine oil requirements for my 2006 1.8 vvti Corolla Verso. Cant find it in my manual or on the web. Bit strange.. This is what i found in the manual:

20w50 or 15w40
api SJ or SL

10w30, 5w30 or 5w20
api SJ, SL or ILSAC

ACEA specification is not listed at all and ILSAC is listed but without specifying if it needs gf4 or gf5...

How can i find this info? First service since i bought it i got Eneos Premium Hyper 5w40, but after a talk with my mechanic i decided to switch to 5w30 like toyota reccomends and i found a possible better choice. The Premium Hyper S, which meets toyotas requirements:

But the problem is that this oil is for cars that needs ACEA C2 spec oil and i cant find anywhere if my toyota needs C2 or a newer spec oil??

Would appreciate any info on this :)

For the UK, Toyota don't quote ACEA specs for petrol engines, and ACEA C2/C3 is, as far as I'm aware, for diesel engines with diesel particular filters.

I found this eneos premium hyper s that states it's made for japanese cars and has toyota listed, but only ACEA C2 and im not sure if my engine needs C2 or a newer spec like C3... This are the specs of that oil:
