    Liqui Moly 15W-50 MOS2. Is the best oil to keep your engine healthy and also it improves the compression also so go for it.

    Improves compression? Can you elaborate?

    5w30 has low viscosity which is recommended for new engines. I am already using 20w50. Plz justify the recommendation.

    Doesn't matter if your engine is good it will not do anything strange. You are using a very thick oil in your car which was used in cars made in 1960-70s.

    Can you justify the 20W-50, thicker oil?

    Thicker than recommended oil is only used in cars like Vitz when your engine is consuming more than normal amount of oil. It is done to avoid rebuilding the engine's weak rings and seals.

    Your car engine is designed keeping specific oil in mind. Thicker oil will reduce fuel economy and thinner oil will seep through the seals and burn along fuel.

    And for your second question, thicker oil will give you less average.

    My car average is low. I.e 13 in long.
    But shifting to thinner oil may lead to sudden wear and tear.
    My car is not reducing oil.
    Engine seems to be perfect. Most experienced oil sellers recimmneding 20w50. Some other pw experts like atta ur rehman bhai also recommneding the same.

    Yes too thick.

    the maximum with high mileage and oil cosumption you can use is 0W40 or 5W40.

    5W30 is for all weathers in Pakistan.

    20w50 is disaster for the engines.

    50 viscosity is used for racing cars with engine rpm touching red line or for towing.

    Completely 'JAHIL' approach.
    80 percent of wear and tear of an engine takes place from starting till the engine obtains the normal operating temperature.

    Did I say anything wrong? If some body says that thicker oil will give more protection to the engine parts with regards to wear and tear is utter nonsense passed on to us by footpath mechanics which we believe in blindly.
