    Engine is same as of Vitz so Air/Oil/Cabin filters are easily available. Change radiator coolant to Caltex one also and top up brake and power-steering oil with ZIC (if not EPS) and if required. For transmission oil also ZIC will do good.

    As for Engine Oil, go for either ZIC A+ 5w20 or Shell HX7. Both are good, ZIC A+ is full synthetic and has better grading with the same cost.

    But since u asked for the best, u could use ZIC OW now and change after 6000kms to ZIC XQ and then every 15000kms. Its price sounds too expensive but it actually saves u alot of money from 3 oil changes u might have done by 15000kms and saves a little fuel too because of 0 friction on cold-cranking (engine wears out most when running cold, in normal driving).
    Also saves costs of 3 filters and labor cost besides time. And above all u have great quality oil running in ur engine.

    Use VIC Japanese filter.

    I kept Passo for 6 months and i would recommend you fallowing based on my experience

    1- Caltex Havoline engine Oil
    2- Toyota 1KRFE Oil filter Original available from 3S
    3- Toyota T4 transmission Oil make sure filter service is done
    4- Brake pads are different from VITZ but available in local market don't change unless required i recommend brake service from Toyota 3S
    5- Toyota 1KRFE Original air filter available from Toyota 3S
    6- Any good Mechanic I guess Toyota 3S other mechanic can ruin your car

    Recommendations:
    Get Throttle clean for better fuel average,don't replace STOCK rims
    for tyre size / air pressure fallow instruction on right door panel
    if you want to change tires possible combinations are

    155/80 30 front , 32 Back
    165/70 29 front ,30 back
    175/60 28 front , 28 back

    Passo common problems / faults and remedies

    1- If car vibrates while brakes pressed in cold conditions possibly engine
    mount rubber touching frame

    remedies:replace engine mount

    2-If Rattling on bumpy roads due to steering colum play

    remedie:can be tight after opening steering assembly cross


    3- Brake sound ,remedies: it's Normal avoid it.

    4- AC not cooling at Idle speed.
    remedies:increase RPM up to 200

    Thanks

    Engine oil ZIC OW (0W-30, API SN, ILSAC GF-5)
    Don't use 20W-50 Engine oil, API grade SF, SG etc..

    Gear Oil if (CVT) then use Toyota CVT oil, or ZIC XP III
    if not CVT then use ZIC Dexron VI or ATF III
    manual transmission 75W-85

    Do not fiddle with the engine for RPM or throttle service until required, which is when the RPM fluctuates and can not keep the AC compressor ON, then u need to get the throttle and its sensor and the air sensors cleaned along with a new air filter. Usually the ECU does its job only otherwise the RPM/tappet settings should be fiddled with.

    16-17km is great mileage, on hi-way it will give u upto 19/l with AC.

    Stay away from caltex oil. Get ZIC 0W or atleast ZIC A+

    I don't think an engine oil can drop too much fuel efficiency.
    which engine oil are you using?
    SAE Grade?
    API Grade?
