Volvo recommends API rated - SAE 5w-30 oil 5.8 qts. They were not brand specific but the oil has to be at minimum API SAE 5w-30 rated. This is the rating that is listed on the back of the bottle. The oil can be better (higher) rated but cannot go below API SAE. If I can be of further help, please let me know. Dave
