Hi, trying to find some info on using Heavy diesel oil in a light diesel car. Oil in question is Q8 supertruck ACEA E4/E7 to be used in a 1.9 turbo diesel afla romeo and a 2.0 turbo diesel volvo S40. Reading the spec it might be suited more to the alfa as it has no DPF filter. Any pointers would be much apperiated, i have an endless free supply of Q8 hence the reason of asking.

Excelent choice for non DPF vehicles!

You had me at endless free supply.

Most light duty diesel cars take a ACEA C3 oil with Sulphated Ash < 0.8 %

The heavy duty diesel E7 has a SA < 2.0 %
Closer would be E9 with SA < 1.0 %

But they all (C3, E7, E9) have a HTHS > 3.5 cP.

My only concern with the high SAPS (high SA) oil is your DPF exhaust filter. No DPF then no worries.
