    ZIC would be a good choice btw even if u use shell helix (CNG) oil then it would also work no problem but my first choice would be ZIC.

    and yeah oil filter either of guard or VIC. VIC would be better as guard is local and sometimes the local one's seal is broken because of manufacturing fault or so.

    VXRI needs close to 4L oil.


    You can use Caltex Formula,


    Shell Ultra


    ZIC A


    Change after every 4000 KM.


    Use good quality filter.

    Yes the oil filter should be changed with every oil change and about how many km's well it depends upon the oil u r using some u can use upto 3000km's it depends. Lets wait what others have to say but best is ask the person from whom u buy the oil about how many km's the particular oil u r purchasing can be used cheers

    Dont use yellow box shell thats not a oil for VXRI yeah for Mehran u can use it. Its a very old technology oil you should use Shell Helix Ultra or Caltex Havoline Formula.


    Yellow box wala oil use karna hai tu than change it at 2500 to 3000KM.

    O bhai. Look at the owner's manual for drain intervals.

    Most probably it is 10,000 km. Use synthetic Shell Ultra or ZIC A+. Use VIC C-110 or C-932 filter.

    For God's sake don't try to be over-efficient by replacing oil at 3000 km. This happened in 1960's when our grandads used foxys. Now oils, engines and materials everything is better. 1985-94 saw a great revolution with turbos, 20v and higher compression, as a result oils got much better.

    For more info read http://www.carbibles.com/engineoil_bible.html .

    10,000 Kms is not impossible guys.
    Good synthetic oil like Zic can give that much runiing in cars like Cultus. I have last time used Zic A+, used synthetic the first time in my 2004 Cultus, and oil is still in fine condition after 4500 kms. Maybe it can go to 10,000 :-) Dont know for sure , but lets hope so :-)
