    Default Engine oil for Vitz 2003

    Aoa PWer's, I need to get my vitz's engine oil changed tmrw. I need to decide between ZIC A+ and Havoline (10W-30). I'll be getting the oil from Metro so It'll be genuine for sure. I use guard filters. My car has covered around 80k kms.. The engine is in sound condition and does not reduce oil. What's the right quantity for this car? Also what's the right brand? Thank you.

    Both oils are best although I have also used havoline formula 10w-30 and shell helix ultra hx7 05w-30 you can get these oils from metro I also get my oils from metro . The required quantity for 1 kr and 1sz is 3.1 and 3.2 respectively.

    I'm eager to try Genuine Zic in my car. I've had a good experience with Havoline. 5W-30 is synthetic, would that be fine for a 11 year old engine? @Damnation6. Thank you.
