Hey good day
I was talking on the topic on other thread, but dont want to hi-jack it so i have created a new topic.
People who have cars with this engine, what viscosity oil do you all use?
and can anyone quote what the manual states about oil?
Thanks a lot.

Any people who use thinner oils on this engine, do you all suffer any burn-off?
thanks again

What oils do you have available in the Caribbean?

5w30,10w30 and LOTS OF 20w50.
Hardly any 10w40 and almost no 0w oils.

seems like 5w30 is the recommended oil 4 that engine.

Probably any decent 10W-30 will make the engine last the life of the vehicle fine

QG18? Be wary of the headgasket. Wouldn't worry much about the oil.

We have a QG18DE in my wife's Expert. They recommend 5W-30, and I use Castrol Edge. It only holds 2.7 litres and has a tiny oil filter, so do 10,000km oil changes on it.

Cheap american oil with cheap dino base oil and even cheaper VII, thus low HTHS and very shear prone. A 10w-30 requires less VII and therefore has a higher HTHS. It also will not break down as fast. They tell you to only use 5w-30 in cold climates because they fear you use low quality oils, and low ambient temperatures let them hope the oil never heats up.

Solution: use ACEA A3/B4 oils, when you want to use a 5w-30.

Yes, or a Dexos 5W30 or a ACEA A1/B1 or A5/B5.

These will all be either full synthetic or semi-synthetics at the least.

If 5W30 is made to the correct standard, it can go the distance and handle high temperature.

Castrol recommend Edge 5w-30 for the QG18DE, which is A3/B4.
