    Default Mehran engine oil capacity is 2.5L 20W-50

    the owner manual says add 2.5L and check the level if low add more so it should be 2.60L max why then the stupid mechs out there add 3L
    and according to our temp conditions the grade is 20w-50 (as in owner's manual)
    also change interval is 5-10k kms according to the manual

    so to conclude one should add 20w-50(the cheapest one...by shell ,caltax etc)that too 2.5L ,dont get mugged by those advertising for fancier ones,buy the cheapest oil(as long as its not fake) and change it not before 5k
    what you guys say? am i missing something

    Well, actually people pour 3L or 3.25L in mehrans.
    If you will pour 2.5L even then it would be ok. But check carefully the heat index. And also physically if the engine is remitting more heat than normal. If yes, then better top it up its level to 3L full.

    I was looking for this thing for quite a long time and finally you uploaded it. The Shell oil replacement center i usually go always pour 3L Shell 10-40 Yellow can in my Mehran but I always wanted to get a document of confirmation that whether he is doing the right way or wrong so finally now i know he was wrong. :O so i reckon next time when i get the oil replaced probably when the summers would be approching i should use the Red can of shell i.e. 20-50 and not more then 2.6L

    it should be in the middle no matter you are driving in city, motorways or offroads.
    If its on upper hot, then its not good sign infact.
