    If engine is not reducing oil, then stick to the same oil. Since when are you using this oil??? And use leepon filter. Zic a+ is 5w20. I doubt that it is not reducing. Its a very thin oil for new vehicles.

    Woah!!!!! U shud have gradually come to a thinner oil. This sudden switching from an extremely thick oil to extremely thin oil can damage ur engine. You have switched from 20w50 to 5w20. Its a big risk.

    See thats why was asking though my engine wasn't reducing any oil...

    I did a little research on market as well as the internet. And asked about it to some Seniors PWs like @Xulfiqar bhai.. And came to a result that i should stick to Havoline 10w-40 (multigrade) throughout winter and summer and change the oil at 3k Odo. What do you suggest...

    Havoline does not come under 10w40. It has havoline 10w30 but it will also work for your ride. If u wanna shift to 10w40 then the options are shell hx5 and zic A

    Leppon is crap. If you want the absolute best, you might want a Mann+Hummel W 67/1. If you just want a decent filter without going into khuwari, get a Guard filter instead.

    You will have to buy a whole case of mann filters; they are not available individually. It will cost 10k + (for 30 filters), but it will probably last you forever. These filters are recommended by Xulfiqar. They are designed for 25k km change intervals.

    Guard filter was 200-250 the last time i got it for Cultus; don't remember the exact price.

    I don't have much experience with air filters other than Guard. I just get it air blasted once a month, when I get the tires inflated. Works fine for at least 15k km.
