    i recently got mine as well, and after thorough search and advices, here is the verdict

    1. stick to the Honda oil. trust me. its not that bad....PLUS....if u use ANY other oil, ur engine warranty is void, so the choice is urs
    2. if u dont care much about warranty, go for Petromin Ultra 7 or havoline
    3. in fully synthetics, Mobil 1 is the class leader followed by Zic XQ,provided u get them genuine from somewhere

    Shell Helix HX series is best - engine oil change in a Prado LC 2700 petrol after 7000 KM the oil color change was light brown & viscosity was as good as new. So far Shell helix proved good and engine also runs bit silent, its my personal experience.

    I have tried many brands over the years in my City iDSi, and after a thorough experience and research I settled for Honda's Genuine Oil 10W-30. It's a locally repacked Caltex Havoline Formula (10W-30) by Chevron PK. About the Fully Synthetic Honda Genuine Oil 5W-30, it's also a locally repacked Total Quartz 9000 (5W-30) by Total PK. However, in market Quartz 9000 is Made and Packed in Singapore. Hence, it costs a lot.
    I opted for Honda's Genuine Oil because of the reliability of the source. I could have easily opted for Havoline Formula and saved PKR 200 (Yes, Honda's 10W-30 oil only costs PKR 1750 for 3.75L pack) but there would have been chance of the oil being a counterfeit.
    For 2012 City, you should opt for Honda's 5W-30 which will cost you PKR 2,200 for 3.75L pack. If you can afford to spend a little more, then buy Total Quartz 9000 (Golden Colour, 4L pack). It'll cost you PKR 2,800 but it will be made and packed in Singapore.
    Again there is a chance, that the Total Quartz 9000 available in the market might be counterfeit. But it's highly unlikely as compared to counterfeit of Havoline. I know one Authorised Retailer of Total in LHR. I buy Quartz 9000 from him.

    Makki Oil Store currently has 3 outlets in LHR.
    1. Akbar Chowk, Faisal Town.
    2. PIA Society, near Wapda Town.
    3. Bahria Town.
    However, you can also find Quartz 9000 on some Total Pumps. But i'd suggest that you go with Makki Oil Store.

    the same syenthetic oil available with honda ppl should be more reliable?
    Why not go for that one, any reasons????

    Honda 5W-30 is indeed more reliable, however it's locally blended and packed by Total PK. Quartz 9000 is made and packed in Singapore.
    As i said, if one can score original Quartz 9000, then it's a better option than Honda.
    Their aren't any copies of 9000 currently in the market.

    All Fully or 100% Synthethic Engine Oils have Low SAE Grades Like 0W-30, 5W-30, 5W-40 etc.
    But Fully Synthetic Oils have best performance and they protects the engine more than other oils Like Semi Synthetics or Mineral Oils.
    But these low SAE grades of Synthetics are not suitable for high temparature of Lahore in June ie 50'C.

    After 2 Days of Google Search, I found that SAE ()W-30 and ()W-40 oil can give good performance only below atmospheric temparatues of 37'C and 46'C respectively.


    The Oils with High SAE Grades like 10W-50, 20W-50 which can be used in high temparatures are not Fully Synthethic.They are Blends or Mineral Oils.


    So Plz tell me? Can I use 100% Synthetic Oil in Extreme Summer with AC in heavy traffics where temparature is extremely High?

    The car running temperature is greater than 100 C and nearly 200 C..The car's cooling system maintains this temperature..The viscoity ratings go out of recommendation if the temperature exceeds 45-50 C which rarely happens in Lahore..thus the nominal viscosity wrt climate for summers in pakistan are 5/10w(cold cranking) and 40/50(running temperature)

    Min 5w Max 40 is suitable for all time operating conditions in pakistan...(no need for further clarifications)

    Why thicker oils are not good..
    thinner motor oil is essential for easy starting, particularly in cold weather, and for proper lubrication once the engine starts. Today's smaller engines have smaller clearances and tighter tolerances between moving parts, and there have been some instances where camshaft damage has occurred because of inadequate lubrication with higher viscosity grades in colder weather. Thinner oils, such as SAE 5W-30, will flow faster than heavier motor oils during start-up and initial engine operation and will help protect the engine from excessive wear. Multigrade oil will also offer the same high temperature protection as single grade motor oil.

    Always check your vehicle owner's manual to select the proper viscosity grade based on the expected temperature range...FOr example a 5w40 maybe suitable for a specific engine till 60C but for another engine it may be suitable till 50C etc etc.There are 2 point to consider 1) recommended Viscosity 2)CLimatic temperature..Usually manufacturers give 2 recommendations for oil viscosities..ANd as a rule of thumb..CHECK YOU ENGINE"S OIL CAP and follow the stated viscosity.

    The viscosity grade(s) recommended by the vehicle manufacturer depend somewhat on engine design. Engine manufacturers have spent considerable time and expense experimenting with different viscosity grades and have indicated in the owner's manual the grades they feel will best protect the engine at specific temperatures..SO dont mess with the manufacturers..If you got buckloads of money atleast use them wisely.

    20w50/10w50 oils offer protection for older engines and prevent excessive wear..They recondition the seal and prevent further wear


    Also remember the Pour point and Flash points of oils vary by manufacturer..SO do check them out..two same 10w40 oil of dfferent make may have different PP and Fp.


    Experience counts
    The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status, is that, deep down inside, we all believe that we are above-average drivers.

    Believe it or not

    Mobil 1 Super Synthetic, API SN, SAE 5W-50 is best oil available in Pakistan.
    No other fully synthetic with such a wide SAE Grading is available in Market
    It is suitable for all weathers

    I'm feeling my new Suzuki Swift more Powerful and soundless when I switched to Mobil 1 from Suzuki Genuine Oil (Which is Mineral Oil)
