Which diesel car? If it has a DPF, the SA levels are likely a little high.

PAO based oil with "older" aditive package (mostly based on ZDDP), for gasoline and diesel engines without DPF.


Car: KIA Ceed JD 1.4 MPI
OIL: 5w30 ACEA A5 / A3; 5w40 ACEA A3; 0w40 ACEA A3

It is good oil. I worked on comparison testing using precisely that oil. INA has newer oils in line up, that one is leftover from beginning of 2000's. It is PAO based, very low Noack. If it is going to make your sleep any better I made 485,000km on 1991 BMW 520i using INA 10W40.

I suppose It would not be the best to use that oil in winter because of its thickness? (Even when the sheet says its good till the -45°C)
Winter here is lets say average, about -10°C in the coldest mornings.
My car calls for 5w40 only (manual recommendation),
last winter I used 5w30 had no problems with it.
I wounder can I try 0w40 for the winter even when winter is not that cold?
Car has 183k km, and It doesnt burn any oil.
I change the oil every 7-9k kms and I always use synthetic ones.

Absolutely you can use 0W40 in fact at -10c you'd be hard pressed to notice any difference on start up with the 5W40

In any part of Croatia in winter you can use 15W40 at any time of winter, let alone 5W40.

Hi from Rijeka. Millennium is fine PAO based oil with older approvals and additive pack- not necessarily a bad thing. INA makes good oils.
