    is 5w40 equally good for karachi conditions and for engines completed over 100k kms?

    both are international giants...but make sure you get hold of original oil..mostly oils are fake in the market in original packings!

    you just cannot identify it ..

    metro will be selling it genuine for sure..

    actually the company operated pumps are always selling genuine..other franchise ones keeps a mix of genuine and non genuine and will sell it accordingly..its a big business...just like the soft drinks are widely fake in stores...

    incorrect company operated are not always selling genuine
    for grade: use genuine toyota oil and use the toyota recommnedation don't experiment with synthetics and 0w- they may not be required at all

    I use Mobil in all three cars that i own , 2 suzukis and 1 civic 2010
    Mobil super 2000 10w-40 for suzuki and 10w - 30
    the importer and authorzied dist. in center and north punjab has own outlet near my home so credibility has no issue
    any parts store or workshop where Mobil car (with banner and advertisement on it) comes and delivers itself is selling genuine oil
