I have 1996 Prado with 1kz engine , 3000 Diesel Turbo. In first 10 months i used the normal mobil oil that is used for diesel engines from toyota, PSO or shell and it was giving average millage of 5.5 km/litre. 2 month back i went to Total for oil change, the owner of the pump is my friend, he advised me to use semi synthtic oil ( 10 w 40 ) that is usually considered for patrol engines. HE said this will increase ur car milleage and pick. Soon after changing the oil i noticed increase in pick and millage from 5.5 to 6.7km/l. I m happy with this change. I know 10 w 40 oil is thin compared to other diesel engine oils, so instead of changing at 3500km i replaced it at 2500 km.
I just want to confirm from experts that is this ok or this oil harms the engine.
