I have an 2005 S80 D5 Se Lux auto with 145,000 on the clock, runs like a dream. The owner's handbook specifies ACEA A3/B3/B4 engine oil. Does the D5 engine of that year need synthetic, semi synthetic or regular oil meeting the ACEA specs, or doesn't it matter?

Best wishes,

Dave B

I finally got an answer from a Volvo main dealer: for my car, an S80 SE Lux with D5 engine on a 55 plate, dealers are instructed by Volvo to use fully synthetic oil to meet the relevant ACEA specification.

Now I know which oil to use for top up between services!
