MY TECHNICAL SUGGESTION FOR CHOICE OF ENGINE OIL (its not in the manual though. lol)
Please DO NOT be panic to find only the SL or SM grade engine oils because manual says so. Plz don't. Instead, try to choose SN Grade oils (which is latest standard) and more importantly already covers all the characteristics & properties of previous grades.
Example: SM grade oil surely has the properties of SL, SG, SH, SJ, grades (the older ones, but it will not meet SN standards). Hence if you will choose SN, then it will automatically be having properties/characteristics of SM, SL, SG, SH grades plus the new ones which makes is SN.
