Hi

I would use a 5w-40 synthetic and you will find those through the link below.

http://www.opieoils....-656-5w-40.aspx

Out of those, the best ones are the Fuchs/Silkolene Pro S, Motul 300V, Redline and Gulf Competition. The Motul 8100 X-Cess, Millers XFS, Fuchs Supersyn and Mobil Synt S are good, cheaper alternatives.

As a budget choice, a 10w-40 will be fine and I would either go for the Fuchs XTR, Millers XSS or Motul 6100

Cheers

Tim

A 5w-30 synthetic. If you want the best, go for the Fuchs Pro S, Redline or Motul 300V.

Hi Guy, Need some recomendation from you for my first 1000km oil service; Make: Suzuki Model: Swift Sport Year: 2010 Engine type: M16A Performance modifications; None Driving style: Spirited road driving From your past replies, 5W-30 seems to be the recommended choice but I live in South East Asia where the ambient temperature is 25 to 35 deg Celcius. So cold starts will not be an issue for me. My local Suzuki workshop recommends Shell 10W-40 semi-synthetic. Is that a good choice or would you recommend something else. Thanks in advance. G

I need professional advice for (manual) transmission gear oil. I was looking Torco MTF cause it is light but also can protect under racing conditions. It meets API GL-4 standard, but it is much lighter than 75w90 gear oils. Only problem is that it has very low viscosity index just 135. Would it be ok if I use it just for 10k km?

Since the shifting is already as smooth as silk, unless you are looking for the last once of power or economy I'd stick to the manufacturer's recommendations. It's sold as a racing oil and 10k is a long way for that. You could always try it for one race and get an oil analysis done.

Motul make some of the best oils available, the 300V 5w-30 being their best for your car, but the X-Max 5w-30 is also a very good choice.

Hello! Questions ... I have a M15a, but I have to use oil, I'm from Mexico and the same day we can be at -5°C in the mornings and evenings 45ºC.

5W30, 5W40 or 5W50?

I suspect the manual will tell you what grade to use for the region you are in. I'm pretty sure mine has a couple of different recommendations, location dependent.

I'd say one in between, not too viscous but nor too 'thin'. But as above check the manual.
