Hi all. I am planning to take my 2018 Giulia 2.0 Ti Sport on a road trip from Southern Ohio to Hamilton, Ontario for my Nephews wedding This is only about 460 miles each way but much further than I have driven her so far. The car is just run in with about 1500 miles on it.

Any recommendations as to what might be useful to pack for the trip, just in case?
(my car has 19"wheels with run-flats).

Here is what I have so far:
1. Flashlight
2. A few basic tools
3. 1 Quart of oil 0W40 synthetic (Fiat spec 9.55535-GS1). Suggestions on what oil meets this spec?
4. Washer fluid
5. Extra engine Coolant (what do I purchase?)
Thanks in advance

Air pump in case you get a flat and have to refill. I know you are running runflats but just in case.

First Aid car kit/roadside assistance kit if you dont have one already

Get a good night's sleep and bring the energy and get ready to enjoy driving bliss.


Be prepared for an always-busy QEW once you cross the border into Canada.

Hi all. Thanks for the great feedback!!

Using the on-line oil selector on the Pennzoil web site, it shows a 0W30 oil as being correct. I rechecked my owners manual and indeed it should be a 0W30 viscosity. So unless anyone tells me this is wrong, it is what I will look for:
