    Compared to Mobil Mineral as mentioned in previous post.

    5w has added advantages from the protection point of view, more protection and better flow characteristics esp. during cold season. HX6 is cheaper priced mineral oil with synthetic additives as in almost all motor oils these days. The change interval is shorter than FS as well.

    Guys, I need to change the engine oil in my T-Jet. Selenia is not available where I live. Which other engine oil should I go for? Should I change the oil filter as well?

    Yes you must change the oil filter along with the oil.

    You can go through the previous pages to see what oils people have used. Mobil 1 should be it if you want to give your Jet the best. :)

    Cheers.

    Fully synthetics can go upto 15000kms safely, some change at 10k some at 12k depending on one's whims.
  8. Is castrol EDGE fully synthetic or semi synthetic engine oil.

    I have a very new diesel experience as its my first Oil change at ASS @ 12500 kms

    I did 2nd service 2500 km early and 3 months before a year as I believe in proactive maintenance

    Even the oil drained was okay and could run some more miles

    Only difference I felt with New oil is Good reduction in sound as its silent like my petrol
    And some refinement as it feels free revs
