hi to all members, thank you for contributing your time and knowledge to this forum.

for the past week, i have learned that choosing the right engine oil, is difficult, and complex.

so i'm asking for your help.

i have 2011 mitsubishi pajero\montero\shogun 3.2 diesel.(200hp)

my warranty is over, so i want to change the oil+minor things on my own.
and to know that the oil i pay for, is the best for my engine, and not some 5w30 label oil in the dealership.


here's the manufacture spec's:

5w30
ACEA: A5\B5 A4\B4 A3\B3
API-CF4

ok, from what i have learned is:
A5\B5 is top line, combining of A1B1-A3B3-A4B4
CF4 is obsolete, CF is better.

here's where i find it difficult to choose, i have 2 systems(catalytic converter + DPF) on my car that need ACEA: C1, C2, C3.
+
a1b1 a3b3 a4b4

i looked at this brands: Royal purple(good for the engine, very bad for DPF & catalytic converter).
AMSOIL, Mobil1, Valvoline, Motul, Castrol, Liqui molly,.

so, i ask for your advice, what oil would be best, for my engine?


thank in advance.

You find oils who both carry acea a5/b5 and acea c2, with are both HTHS below 3,5

CF-4 is better than CF, but API declare them both obsolete, so oils can be recommended for/tested against, but not certified for CF anymore.

For the HTHS, some of the oil companies are making oils spot on the 3.5 so that they claim that they just fall into the above 3.5 and below equal 3.5.

When the Japanese spec oils for their diesels, they often make the specs exclusive so that an oil can't quite meet what they are asking for.

Things that will suit your needs, give or take a spec or two

shannow, thank you, but no.

i need 5w30 u gave me w40, and i wouldn't dare go astray from oem spec.


this all race, after the perfect oil, is very Exhausting, and worrying, cause i afraid i might damage the engine after 3 4 thousand k.

Nope, HTHS is way below the 3.5 required for your A3/B4.

I mentioned the ealier oils, as Castrol (Australia) recommend
Edge 0W-40,
Magnatec Diesel 15W-40
Magnatec 10W-40

and Mobil (Australia)
M1 0W-40
X2 5W-40
S2 10W-40.

the 40s are recommended across the board generally.

Caltex C3 synthetic was a 5W-30 that advertised A3/B4, and C3, hanging on the 3.5 HTHS, but have been forced to drop the A3/B4.

shannow, with all due respect, you are linking me to 5w40, and i need 5w30, thats what manufacture required, 5w40 could destroy my engine.(from what i have learned)
maybe in Australia the climate is different, otherwise, i have no idea why use 5w40 on 5w30 engine.

btw i need low HTHS, because anything with higher than 3.5 HTHS, is more of "heavy" oil, and could not lubricate my engine properly.(again, from what i have been told)

so i guess ENV c2 is the best for me.

no, no ULSD in israel.

i need low saps oil, because of dpf\catalytic converter.

and the funny\frustrating thing is: OEM doesn't require C1 C2 C3, not in the car manual, but i must have it, or DPF\CC would be damaged.


have a great day guys, and thank you for your time and knowledge.

No probs, but the things that you are asking for are in combination mutually exclusive.

First, to the DPF...it's not specified as needing a C series ACEA oil, so where have you learned that you need a C2/C3 ?

If someone has told you, and it's not in the manual, then they are insinuating something that isn't stated by Mitsubishi.

You can't have a label that meets ACEA "C" series and A/B series anymore, so you cannot have an oil that meets both specifications on the label, but can have something that nearly meets them both.

Here's the ACEA specs, so that you can see what each offers.
http://www.infineum.com/Documents/ACEA/ACEA%202012%20oil%20sequences.pdf

Your Mitsubishi specifies A3/B3, A3/B4 (there's no A4), which have an HTHS of greater than 3.5...this is met by a small number of 5W-30s, and a large number of 40s.

The links I posted were from the major oil suppliers in Oz...except the Delvac1 LE, which IS a 5W-30, but I reckon would do you fine.

A5/B5 requires an HTHS between 2.9 and 3.5...it's a completely different specification to A3/B3, A3/B4, not "top of the line, combining the other specs".

If your manual genuinely allows you to use both A3/B4, and A5/B5, then it will live on an HTHS of 3.5 and above, and also be happy with 2.9-3.5.

I think that whoever has told you that you need a C2/C3 oil, if not stated in your manual, is giving you dud information.

These things run on just about anything. Yes they have a DPF but do not need a low/mid SAPS oil. As you have stated, Any ACEA B spec will do or API CF (or better) will work too. From memory in a viscosity range of 5w30 to 20w40 is acceptable.

ACEA made C and B specs mutually exclusive in 2010, maybe for good reason. Nowhere does it say you can use ACEA C so I wouldn't.

My pick would be an ACEA B4 in a 5w40 or 0w40. If you want to use 5w30 thats fine. Castrol Edge 5w30 A3/B4 meets that.

I would pick delvac1 LE 5W30. It is lower SAPS but having HTHS over 3.5 it offers greater high temp protection for your long hot summers. P is only 800ppm for catalyst protection. Ash is slightly over prescribed C3levels (1.0 vs. 0.8) but it has very low volatility. My BMW X5 burns zero in 18000 km OCI.
It has a higher detergency level than the poor level supplied by C oils.

I would consider Mobil Super 3000 X1 FE 5w30.

It is an A5/B5 oil but the saps are below 1.0

But not low enough to be consider a C1 oil which from my research is the reduced HTHS low saps spec.

I have had it in the Pathfinder for a while now, nearly 5k, no dpf lights or anything, and a very small improvement in fuel economy.

The owners manual for my Pathfinder only ever listed A3/B3/B4 for non dpf and C3 for dpf equipped vehicles.

But when i got hold of a workshop manual i found out that A5/B5 was allowed.

After finding out the new formulation of FE 5w30 had saps below 1.0, i think it is actually 0.8 i thought why not go for it.

Engine still uses no oil.

As Mobil Super is not top line like Mobil 1 products it is also a lot cheaper.

Next oci i am considering Shell Ultra AFL 5w30 C1. As i can then use same oil as my Jaguar.

That's not very likely to happen. In any event, the requirements you posted are for an A3/B3 A3/B4 type oil, which will have an HTHS of 3.5 or greater. And, if you want to stick with 5w-30, your options are further limited. Do not be going for fuel economy gasoline only engine oils. The Delvac 1 LE 5w-30 already mentioned is about the closest option I can imagine of something reasonably familiar to me.

OP listed A5/B5 aswell.

Not common but my Pathfinder is also specced for normal and low HTHS oils.

I still think Mobil Super 3000 X1 FE 5w30 is a good fit.

Quality full synth, cheaper than Mobil 1 with low saps and has been a good fit for me in several different vehicles for me.

This engine came out in 2000, based on a much earlier engine....it may now have common rail, but the engine block has been around for a long long time, around 1995. From my experience working at a Mitsi dealership - it'll run forever on anything. I remember the owners manual used to say use any oil better than CD for the 4M41.

first, i want to thank you all, deeply, from my heart, for helping me to do the smart choice, thanks again!

second, i feel like a fool, trying to do the right thing for my car, and even after all the effort, nothing conclusive, only so so.

yesterday i wanted to use valvoline 5w30 ENV C1, but local valvoline branch dosn't sell it.(said no demand for this specific oil, suggest 5w30 XL III.)
we have no mobil1 or amsoil importer.(from reading and reading, i would love to get amsoil)

so my option kinda limited.

we have castrol, valvoline, champion, liquid moly, Reinhol, and other oil's, but not wide selection to choose.

my request is this:
you guys tell me, 2 3 options, from those brands, and that will be it.

i'm feeling a bit ridiculous, after all the time and effort i spent, on oil.
i wish it would have been easy, but, well, its complex.



hope you guys do me this little favor, so i wont bother you or anyone else on the matter.


thanks, a million!

Have never had any issues with Castrol products.

Widely used in both petrol and diesel Ford and Volvo engines as most main dealers use Castrol.

I don't think you will notice much difference between Magnatec and Edge.

So i would say go for Castrol Magnatec 5w30

Liqui Moly is well.spoken on the forum but i have never used it personally

This is not at all complicated. Just pick a 5w30 that meets one of the manufacturers specs you listed in your first post. I suggested Castrol Edge 5w30 A3/B4.

The manufacturer has not allowed an ACEA C spec oil. But if you must use one, go for a 5w30 C3. C1 would be the last thing I would use.

Why would you specifically avoid C1?

I use it in the Jag and it seems to be basically A5/B5 but with really low Saps.

The OP lists A5/B5 amoungst his allowable oil specs. So in theory it could be a good fit.

C1 is very expensive though. So that is one reason to avoid it!

n0mad - I've been running the Delvac 1 LE 5W30 in my 09 BMW X5 35d for about 25K miles. it hasn't destroyed the engine, and I don't think a 5W40 will do that either.
The only real concern is the catalyst (SCR) and DPF. The aforementioned oil has "C" levels of Zn/P and slightly more ash (1.0% vs 0.6-0.8%).

One of the reasons i was happy to use Mobil Super 3000 X1 FE 5w30 was that fact the saps were well under 1.0, i think the figure was more like 0.8

So far so good as it has been in the Pathfinder for several thousand miles now.

The Pathfinder is due its annual roadworthyness check soon (Mot) so will change it out then.

I do have a source for a Delvac oil.

But you have to buy a minimum of 20 litres and they are a 200 mile round trip away.

Might have a look into what 5w30 products they do. Previously i was looking for 5w40 for the Taxi is used to own.

btw i need low HTHS, because anything with higher than 3.5 HTHS, is more of "heavy" oil, and could not lubricate my engine properly.(again, from what i have been told)



Lmao, 5w40 won't hurt pretty much any 4 stroke engine. What some manufactures call 5w30 is as thick at 100c as most 5w40, its all an illusion. And what the manufacture says to use can have its own agenda, such as fuel economy targets.

my request is this:
you guys tell me, 2 3 options, from those brands, and that will be it.
i'm feeling a bit ridiculous, after all the time and effort i spent, on oil.
i wish it would have been easy, but, well, its complex.


Greetings from Serbia.
You'll be fine with Liqui Moly TopTec 4200 http://www.liqui-moly.com/liquimoly/produktdb.nsf/id/en_3706.html?OpenDocument&land=GB

also could be great TopTec 4600 http://www.liqui-moly.com/liquimoly/produktdb.nsf/id/en_3755.html?OpenDocument&land=GB

and TopTec 4300 (ACEA C2, on thinner side)
http://www.liqui-moly.com/liquimoly/produktdb.nsf/id/en_3740.html?OpenDocument&land=GB

If summer temperature are higher than about 35 C, ACEA C3 5W-40 could be also very good alternative (of course than there is no fuel economy)
http://www.liqui-moly.com/liquimoly/produktdb.nsf/id/en_3700.html?OpenDocument&land=GB

All these oils liqui moly recomends for your Pajero. No mistake with any of them, cause all of them are Mid-Low SAPS oils that your DPF needs for longer functionality.

Good luck.

warm greeting from israel DS9!
smile


thank you very much, and to you: bigjl(3x), supercity, m37charlie, Fraser434.

ds9, i'm having a problem choosing LM, it's indeed low saps, but its also certified as CF not CF4.(which is better.)

and when i found promising oil, it's always A4B5 but is CF, am i mistaking by thinking it's not appropriate?

that's my problem, it's either 1 or 2, never seen b3\b4\b5 cf4 c2\c3.

i'm starting to doubt that such oil exist, and my ignorance is what dragging this thread to much.


[censored] it, to understand the field of oil, is something very hard to master, sea of information, that will take me years to comprehend.

well the [censored] with it, soon, il guy and buy 2 gallons of magnatec 5w30 and that's it!
or edge 5w30.
smile

Tried to explain that CF/CF-4 are obsolete oils, and not even licenced against anymore on Page 1...

So Nomad, dont bother with other thinks - find 5W-30 or 5W-40 that is ACEA C3 certified, change oil and filter in 10,000-15000 km, and that`s it. cheers

Given they do not have ULSD, I would not use a C3 oil for 10,000 km.
