Can't say I've ever heard of that type of oil Embarassed

I use Mobil or Pennzoil synthetic oil. For the longest time I used Quaker State but I found that it burned waaaay more than most other oils.

Pennzoil synthetic all the way baby! cheers I find that it stays clean longer and burns more slowly than Mobil 1 or Castrol.

Nippon Eneos motor oil is the number 1 oil in japan. good for toyota honda nissan and mitsubishi engines.


so how many kms does your oil take before changing it?

mines around 10k - 15k.

I change my oil every 5000-6000 km or so. After using Quaker state though for my first two oil changes I had to do two quick succession oil changes cause the oil came out black and left my valve cap all grungy on the inside. I now use Pennzoil, or Mobil when they are out of Pennzoil, and don't have any issues.

its a diesel bro oil gets pitch black from day one so one month is enuff and its losses its lubrication in one month and changing the oil this this early helps in maintaining engine lyf and prevents black smoke from the exhaust and helps in the diesel consumption alot.

okay, just making sure. It states on the manual the 2e and 4efe engines have the same amount of engine oil requirements. specifically about 2.7 liters.

I mainly use Penrite, but that's an Australian brand so most of you have probably never seen it...

DIESEL ENGINES ARE VERY HARD TO MAINTAIN.EVEN WHEN GOING TO A STANDARD TUNING U HAVE TO CHANGE OIL,OIL FILTER,AIR FILTER, OIL QUANTITY 5 LITRES AND THE FILTERS ARE BIG IN SIZE SO EXPENSIVE.AND AFTER 20000 KMS HEATERS PLUGS HAVE TO BE CHANGED THERE DIFFERENT FROM SPARK PLUGS THEY GLOW LIKE LIGHT SABER WHEN CONNECTED TO CURRENT.AND THE DIESEL FILTER ALSO.AND IF THE DIESEL FILTER IS NOT TIMELY CHANGED THEN THE FEUL PUMP AND FEUL LINES GET DIRTY CAUSING WHITE SMOKE TO COME OUT FROM EXHAUST. BUT THERES A PLUS SIDE IT HAS KILLER AIRCON RESPONSE EVEN WITHOUT MOVING AND NO PROB ABOUT HEAT UP.AND EVEN TEMP ABOVE 40 DEGREES (COMMON HERE IN SUMMER)THE HEAT UP METER DOESNT EVEN REACH THE HALF POINT ITS ALWAYS AT QUARTER OR A BIT ABOVE QUARTER.............AND THIS MY FRIEND IS DIESEL ENGINE 101
