hi guys, i will be sending in my car for the 10,000 km service. from day 1 until now i have been using Petronas Mach 5 mineral oil 10w30.

given the options (not many, though. Authorized proton service centers make u use either Petronas or Shell to cover warranty), which type of oil should i go for? continue with Mineral or use the Semi-synthetic?

currently with my conservative driving culture, 60% highway 40% city, i am getting about 10km / liter. (which translates to RM 0.18/km).

In CBT Magazine, the author always emphasize on protecting with FS since day one for full protection.
Some mention using mineral to let new engine run in before using FS.
Some don't believe in FS at all.
Base on the above, it is up to you what you want to use. No clear cut to a Best Engine Oil...... smile_wink.gif

Better fuel consumption comes in many ways. Best is to control the right foot...... smile_big.gif

Other than that, no fast acceleration, no sudden hard braking, keep rev within torque range, carry less load, don't speed etc. etc.
For Engine oil you are using 10w-30 which is quite light already. Other than that, you can try a semi or FS 5w-30 oil.... smile_wink.gif

10W-30 is the weight that recommend for CPS engine as stated at the car user manual. If u want to maintain xW-30 weight, I believe that most of the SC didn't bring in many stock for xW-30 oil. My friend driving a CPS also have to bring his car to PE branch just for using the xW-30 oil because PE dealer didn't supply the xW-30 weight oil. I using the Shell Ultra 5W-40 since 10k service that supply the PE dealer for my BLM. smile_big.gif PE SC only supply Petronas or Shell. I want to use own oil but my SA bising at me.

There was a study by Castrol on FS vs Mineral and I think the improvement on FC was 5%.

I prefers to use my head than follow the crowd. After all, it is my money and not theirs.
