    The spec says

    Opel GM-LL-A-025
    Opel GM-LL-B-025

    GM = General Motors
    LL = Long Life
    A or B = Internal designation
    025 = Validity index
    GM-LL-A is more suited for petrol engines.
    GM-LL-B is more suited for diesel engines.

    As it says that it is both A & B, then it will be ok for the 2.2 direct.

    It's the same spec oil that Autovaux sell which says is suitable for all Vec-Cs.
