Sort of, it does the same job but 2.2 litres last around 100,000 miles or so. There is a pouch underneath the vehicle that needs refilling and then the EML will need resetting using diagnostics.

Garage in our town does it for £85 including diagnostics, Peugeot charges more than double that.

there will more than likely a tube vid showing how to refill it, then get yourself a cheap diagnostic reader and reset it yourself
