    So 10w30, I have some quaker state synthetic blend 4x4 should be fine then?

    Would anyone use 0w30 synthetic? I use that in my full size gmc, very nice in the winter, as I don't have a block heater, always get good oil pressure on a cold start.

    im using 20-50 on my zuk. it take a few cranks to start but i can live with this in exchange for heavier lubrication. im getting 16km/liter using this. no problem whatsover on a 200km run at average of 40kph.

    3.5 qts w/ filter for 1999 Suzuki F6A EFI

    I used Mobile1 5W-30 Full Synthetic on my first and only oil change since having my truck and it took right at 3.5 qts with the filter. I have a 99' Suzuki with the F6A EFI engine. I tried just using three qts like I had read, but it was right at or just slightly above the add line. 3.5 qts did the trick and filled it completely.

    Since we are talking about oil the next thing that comes to mind is oil filters. What would be the recommended filter to use i.e the ones say from AutoZone or NAPA or the imported ones from Japan? I know with my '93 Cambry, Toyota suggest using their filters because of better flowing. I now have a little over 310,000mi on this car because of regular oil changes.
    Thanks in advance for your response. BTW, I have a 92 Carry

    Personally, I steer away from the Frams here in Japan. The Japanese filters are obviously much higher quality at about triple the price though. Of course, I can just go anywhere and pick one up. If a Suzuki dealer nearby stocks the filter, I would go that route.

    Not off hand. I just read that WIX makes good filters.

    I have a '91 Suzuki Carry and it is coming up to were it needs an oil change. I run Chevron Delo 400 5W-40 Full Synthetic with a Fram filter in my '89 GMC 1/2 ton. Would that combination work on my Carry?

    i use castrol 5w30 sintec full synthetic in my Mitsubishi, and it holds with the filter 3L's... also i change the oil and filter every 2000 km's. 5w30 is good for the high rpm starts, and my truck never runs hot or even gets to the half way mark on the gauge. :)

    I will be running Shell Rotella T Diesel 15w40 dino oil in the summer and the 10w40 synth. Rotella in the winter, with a Wix.

    Why a diesel oil, you ask?

    All modern oils, including the synths., do not have the anti galling additives in them for an engine with sliding parts, specifically the valve train. The last 10 years has seen regular oil have most of the zinc and moly pulled out of it to meet the newer emission standards. These engines need oil that was produced 15 to 20 years ago, unfortunately it only exists now as a diesel oil.

    With the hard work I will put my mini through I need it to last with the high heat environment I live in (can be 42 deg.C, 115 deg.F in the dessert I live in).
