    Try to get Zic from a reputed shop or search for an authorized dealer. Last week I saw Zic A in Makro at very low price. I am sure that won't be a fake oil!

    your engine will run perfectly on mineral engine oil, ensure some points for long life.

    1 use a good oil filter
    2 ensure that the engine temperature is NORMAL before you lug the engine.
    3 Ensure that your air filter etc is good.

    I am using Shell Helix HX5 10W-40 (yellow packing) in my 2005 hyundai santro with 88k on odo.
    this is a mineral oil...my car runs very well on it..engine is noiseless, smooth and fuel efficiency is also great.. drain interval is 3000km..but car needs upto 1 litre of top-up in between two oil changes (which is normal as per owner's manual)... i change OEM oil filter on every oil change and air filter every alternate oil change...my few concerns are:
    1) shell helix HX5 is API = SG...(dont u think SG its very old ??)
    2) Will it be harmful or good if i go a step ahead and start using Shell Helix HX7 which is Semi-synthetic oil with API = SM ??
