    I use the honda engine oil for my city vario. It has done more than 20 thousand Km. So far so Good. I change the engine oil after 5000 Kms.
    You can also go for the Shell Helix blue one. It also last 5000 kms. I have been using the blue helix on my other car, City 98 Ex for 7 years and the engine is still going great. This time however I used the honda engine oil in my city 98. Not for any particular reason, just for a change. I don't think it really makes a difference. Both these oils have same ratings I guess. I think Caltex makes the engine oil for honda.

    there is a slight difference in rating between the genuine honda and Shell HELIX blue Container, and i think the shell is slighly better. you can get that, and go for a genuine oil filter ( i think its available only in plaza), i think even honda sells locally made filter...

    @gogadrum
    Shell has also introduced a new Oil Helix Ultra (Grey container). You can try that one. The filter sold by honda is locally made and costs 150, but I think u can use that if u change it with each oil change.

    @AkbarGr8
    According to the specifications on Helix Plus(Blue)container, this is not suitable for older engines. So what do u think, should I discontinue using Helix Blue and switch to the CNG Oil or the Helix Super(yellow)? The car in question is 7 years old and was converted to CNG around five months back.

    NonComposMentis you are right about the blue container not being safe for older engines, as i have read it myself too. i was in plaza last week buying oil filter for my baleno, and he also asked if my car was on CNG or not.cause he recommended the CNG oil to be used in case it was...so yeah..you should get the CNG oil..i guess it helps the engine...im not aware of this new Shell Helix Ultra, but i guess ill give it a shot as my baleno requires an oil change in around 500KM's...and yeah i think the blue container oil rated to be used uptil 7000-8000KM, but i change it 5000 any way.

    Hi please read warranty book and also check with your 3S dealer/workshop if using oil other than Honda is ok and does not affect your warranty. There is a stikcer on new Toyotas which says that warranty void if oils other than Toyota oils are used, cheers, mmg
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    All oil companies sell oils with API classifications. For the petrol engines SL is the highest class of oil presently available in Pakistan. Next comes SJ, SH,SG, SF and so on. As a rule of thumb, using the best quality of engine oil is best for a brand new or rebuilt engine. If your engine burns oil it would appropriate to use a cheaper class of oil. Remember also that you can increase the oil change interval when using a high class oil. Many people make the mistake of changing oil at say 2000 kms when they can use the oil up to 5000 kms.
    Another very important point is to buy oil from a reliable pump or shop. Make sure that the shrink wrap on the can is not removed, the cap seal is not broken and sticking seal on the opening is not disturbed.

    Selecting the correct oil for your car could save its life on some occasion. I was driving on the motorway and climbing the Potohar when my radiator hose started leaking. Needless to say the radiator was dry in a jiffy & i blew my gasket. However, the engine did not seize up as i believe i was using a good synthetic oil(Shell Helix Blue). The oil filter was a normal 1 but the oil i had just put in new. Just be sure the oil grading is good.
