Hi Sonic, yup the car is sure sensitive according to the engineers and they suggest stick to sg petrols as far as possible.....

Even before the rules stared I have pump 95 without problem.

I have been only using Singapore Esso (95).

At least 1/2 of my petrol is Malaysia Shell 95(before they chg to 97) and Shell Vpower 97.

I have also mixed every type of Malaysia 97 petrol (BHP/Petronas/Caltex/Esso).

At 56K mileage since Feb 2010, I have nvr gotten any such error before.

for turbo direct injection engine, u need a low sulphur petrol and good engine oil to combat fuel dilution and withstand the heat

heavy footed driving/start stop and shell helix ultra for 10k and malaysia petrol is the worst combination

alas, now this
Don't worry too much about these things if 1) the car is under warranty, and 2) you are provided a courtesy car. My experience with their courtesy car some years back was that I need not top up the fuel, so it's already some form of compensation.

If it's any consolation, my GP has been sent back to C&C 11 times over my warranty period, twice on tow. And that's excluding the 6 or 7 servicings done within the 3 years. My car was so problematic all the SAs know me in person. (you can refer to my infamous "consolidated problems" and "50000km servicing" threads for an idea of what I went thru).

If not for the expiry of my warranty, I would have lived with the GP. Truth be told, it drove like a boat, had a dinosaur 4AT gearbox, and the driving position was all wrong... But somehow there's was this strange empathetic attachment I had with the car.

Give C&C a chance to resolve the issue. Having owned many makes of cars before, C&C Citroen was one of the better service centers I had known. If anything, they had been the most genuine in showing concern,

Yes, I am feeling the same way. Citroen's service is really good compared to BM's.

Agree on the attachment part.... Still missing my GP and liking the DS5...waiting for pockets to deepen and perhaps the DS9..... Kekeke....
