    people are using these oils like these are unmatchable. But these are being repacked here and quality is in high doubts.

    People are blindly using ZIC HIFLO 20/50
    but perhaps less than 0.1% know that this oil is API SM grade.
    ptt performa had this oil 20/50, but API SN grade. So technically my all preferences and suggestions goes for ptt performa oil than zic hiflo.

    From what you have stated I would interpret it as;
    Havoline Formula did its job well and kept your engine clean from carbon & slush.
    Secondly the interval of 4000km was good, and it helped the engine to remain clean as you flushed out all the deposits with every drain.
    If I were you I would stick with the same brand and same interval so that car would run well for another 80,000kms

    I have a swift and odo mileage is 9950km.

    I used Liqui moly 5-40 at 5000km and LM dealer said to change after 10,000.

    So is it safe to just change oil filter and keep the same old oil for another 5,000km? How oil will be lost by changing filter ?
    Turbo lag is like foreplay. You know it's coming. And it's gonna be good.

    oil change interval is highly dependant on oil sump size, e.g. the cars recommending 25,000 to 30,000 kms oil change interval in a passenger vehicle have oil sumps ranging from 8 to 10 litres with a synethic spec of a high VI, quite shear stable and a bit other bits too. now. e.g. a highway truck running a 12.5 litre diesel with an oil sump size of 28 gallons will even recommend an oil change interval of 100,000 kms with a high graded oil.

    Does that mean you can run a 3 litre sump to that mileage, NO. If MB recommends that liqui moly 5w40 is approved for FSS oil change interval of max 30,000 kms - it does not mean your cuore can take its 3 litre capacity to that range on that same oil. It may double the orginal interval but cannot go nuts with it. 10,000 km on a daihatsu cuore is a bit scary for me.

    specially when this engine uses flat tappet rockers, this engine requires an oil with high zddp content (like old SH, SJ formulations) and to be changed at 5,000 kms along with its oil filter.
