Bought a Fiat 124 Spider Abarth. It requires Chrysler MS-12991 oil or it recommends it. It took me forever to find
the oil. Found it on Amazon. Pennzoil Euro 5w40. Is this the only only it will take, or will any Euro 5w40 work with it?

If you care about the warranty i would stick with the manufacturer recommendation.

Pennzoil Euro is the only one I've found that has the MS-12991 seal of approval. I am tempted to use Castrol Edge 5w-40 since I can get it locally, but with the turbo and Multi-air I am a little nervous and will likely just order 4 quarts of the Pennzoil.

My Jeep specs MS-6395 which if you read the spec pretty much any conventional will meet, but M1 isn't approved! Knowing how weak the spec is, I had no problem using M1.

If you take it to the dealer,
will they just fill it from the bulk tank?

Inquiring minds want to know.....

When I bought mine, they tried to sell me a maintenance package. The F&I guy was clear it needed synthetic which of course was an interesting conversation that I might have started to dive deeper into but I wanted to stay focused on the paperwork and not be distracted.

Sounds like a similar spec to A40, LL-01, and MB 229.5 if Penn euro 5W-40 carries the approval you need. I'm sure any oil carrying the three aforementioned approvals will work great. I recommend Castrol 0W-40, because it's such a good value.

Use 'Chrysler MS-12991' in your search on amazon. You should return several options for your Fiat 124.
