I don't know about the Diesel, but the regular 1.4l Turbo engine requires Dexos oil.
That being said, you can always buy a jar of this:

And add a quart of this to your current oil mixture.
Fill the engine oil to the lowest line, so that 2-3k miles down the line you can add another quart to the engine.

You don't really need to drain the engine, but on the 1.4 liter turbo engine, you can keep adding a quart of Dexos oil each 2-3k miles (as long as you don't overfill the engine).

LOL.... DEXOS1 is old school. Diesels require the big DEXOS2. ?Not found in every auto parts store.
I happened to have passed by our local walmart store, and they had Dexos 2 oil for sale at $26 a jar, from Pennzoil, the green kind of jar.
