Hi guys , changing oil and filter once a month just woundering what every ones running.

Recommended oil in Australia is Castrol Edge Oil 5 - 30 a3/b4 fully synthetics,5 - 30 very specific :D

160 km .

As engine gets older do ppl use thicker oil :)

Any one use a additive due to the low sulphur diesal?

Cheer for your input .

I use 10w40 full synthetic in mine...mainly because to the stupid temps we get here in Aus.

Unless you've had the latest PCM update, keep to the 5w30. Thicker oil makes it difficult to start, especially diring cold weather.
