sounds like a plan bro.... i said to the guy i got my oil from i was going to do every 5 like i did in my STi , but he said no its a waste of good oil its proven to be at least 10,000 klm in the performance engines .. so i dont know if i will or not now .

Re: Group Buy - Oil Sydney AU

Yeah, not exactly an independent comparison and no doubt the guy selling you Royal Purple told you it's the best thing since slice bread. Not saying Royal Purple is not any good, it is, if i could find a 0w-40 in Royal Purple i would use it. Knowing that Mobil 1 was one of the oils used in the development of the 392 and that it is one of few oils here that is 0w-40 was my decision to use it. I'm lucky to do 1000ks a month, so every 6 months she will get fresh oil, it may be a waste of good oil but it's what I've always done.

Cheers

Re: Group Buy - Oil Sydney AU

I could be wrong but I think this thread began because of the difficulty Aussie CRD owners were having in getting the highly specific oil required for their CRDs. Oils for the petrol engines were never an issue. The new generation of diesels with DPFs require low ash oils. These are quite different to normal diesel engine oils and very different to petrol engined oils. The thread has drifted off this subject but then the title was not that specific. The OP might want to comment.
