Re: Mineral or Synthetic Oil ?

You mean for Diesel hearts.??

manza , punto , linea with the NATIONAL engine runs on synthetic from day one.

even the service interval is 20k.

BUT in my accent manual its printed , not to use synthetic oil.

But if we use in accent , i must idle up more to make the viscosity increase with temperature and then run. so not a big issue if i use them[evil]

Re: Mineral or Synthetic Oil ?

@ Ilango, was waiting for the sales rep from wurth oil to call up, but no body called till now. Anyways have to leave for bangalore tomorrow, so this time plan to change with Mobil delvac Mx , it's a mineral oil. For the Gear box planning to use Shell Spirax 80W90.
Plan for a long trip next week from bangalore. Will give a feedback on these oils after the trip.
