    Default Engine oil suggestion for Toyota Vitz 1L, 2010

    Hiya fellows,

    I have a Toyota Vitz, 2010-model, 1L, which has been driven around 67000km approximately. I'm looking to find a brand and type of engine oil that will be best for the car. After having read through various threads here about engine oils, I'm confused about which one I should go with. People here have suggested Shell, Caltex, Zic, Mobi, and others, which only adds to my confusion.

    So, I wanted to ask simply: Is Zic 0W a good choice for the engine? Or should I go for Zic A+?

    Also, if I use either of the Zic oils I mentioned, what should be an safe drain interval? After how many KMs should I change the oil?

    Your precious advice will be highly appreciated.

    Many thanks.

    Cheers,
    Ayaz

    How is the fuel efficiency compared to ZIC? And where did you buy it from? I am also having trouble locating dealers that sell original oils. Also, isn't 10W a bit too thick for a Vitz engine?
