    viscosity matters more than the brand, so whichever brand you use, make sure you use 5w30 or 5w40. and don't listen to anyone who tell you that it's too thin for our weather.

    And use the best quality air and oil filters you can find

    I am using Total Quartz 9000 5W30 full synthetic in my Mira Custom. And as other members suggested, stick to the manufacturer recommendations as mentioned on the bonnet sticker.

    If the Engine condition is good, having no oil in Exhaust pipe , then u must stick on 5W30, initially go for semi synthetic oil, if you are not sure about the actual milaage of your Car, Give 5W30 semi synthetic a try , Like Liqui Moly , Meguin, or even Shell Helix HX7- 5W30 semi synthetic, you will get the immediate response, a good starting and a better fuel economy. InShaAllah!
