What engine oil do you recommend for the Peugeot 200hp driven 177000 km year 2011

At the moment, my lambda sensor in front of the catalytic converter is not working and the other sensor is not ok either. Could this be to blame for higher fuel consumption. Can I replace the lambda sensor with a non-original one. Which sensor manufacturer would be of good quality

The Prince Engines can consume anything between 1ltr to 5000 klm & obviously it will go lower for higher mileage one odd thing about direct injection Engines is one may use more oil than another I assume they mean how the car is driven?

Dumb question from someone who knows nothing about engines
Dip stick shows half way between max and min so how much oil should I top up and what grade , 2015 THP 156.

Should be around 0.5L - 1L. Add 500ml, then wait a bit and check again. If needed, add more and check again.

Can't go wrong with Total Quartz Ineo Ecs 5W30.

Use Quartz Ineo 5 w 30 low saps 3 & top the oil up to the top Mark on the stick looks like a small brass bauble the engine holds 4.25 litres when full if its half way try putting a litre in then check & top up to the marker do not overfill if possible always keep the oil on or around the max otherwise you could kill off the timing Chain & tensioner plus causing other issues as you can starve theses engines of oil very quickly

Can't help! Pre cat regulates air/fuel so yeh. I have used Lambda's from NGK, Bosch and recently two for a TF from a 'well reviewed' on eBay that have worked a treat.

I've seen here that the recommended oil is Total 5W30, but my mechanic is putting Total 5W40 in most PRINCE engine cars. Is this okay - longterm wise?

I've called around two or three garages and they all said 5W40 for the RCZ engine due to better long-term timing chain performance.

What do you guys recommend? Any bad experience with 5W40?

Wouldnt that be too low for me since summer temps here in Slovenia often reach above 35 degrees in July/August.

Check the Handbook if you haven't one in mine it states 5w30 & as I have been using it for over 4 1/2 years with no issues I'll carry on using it so if your mileage is in the upper range that is my recommendation 0w30 can break down far too quickly in a HP turbo engine but the 5w30 is a slightly heavier viscosity & takes a lot longer to deteriorate & nearly all dealers stick 0w30 in because they buy in bulk at cheap prices & its mainly used in new vehicles to help the engines bed in properly
