    Default lancer oil change-suggestions needed ASAP

    i have lancer 07 model, 1.3 GLX. currently i am using shell helix ultra ever since i bought the car, but now many people are saying to me that it's not good and i should opt for either Zic or Havoline. i need urgent suggestions as i have to go for oil change within this week. if anyone has info of any other good oil brand, please do share it.
    P.S. is it feasible to change the oil brand when the car has been driving on one brand since so long?
    looking for some nice suggestions from experts.
    Regards.

    I recommend to use ZIC XQ , API SM, or ZIC OW, both are fully synthetic Engine oils with extra fuel saving , engine protection, more pick and power,

    I personally use ZIC. But if your car engine is fine with Shell OIL, then stick to it. Don't bother what people say. But if you are feeling that your car requires change, then go straight to ZIC Service Station at F-11/1 and get it changed from there!
