so wat about Chevron delo, is that any good?


Been using delo for a couple months and hv no complaints with it, a quality mineral for a dam gd price! Jus be sure to change every 5,000kms since the LE version was developed for use with low sulphur diesel and ultra low sulphur diesel, not the piss-poor stuff we got here

Been reading around on the interwebz and I found an interesting site.
A guy basically cuts open most of the popular oil filters available on the (american) market and has a look at the internal guts of each filter. He seems to be an experienced person when it comes to maintaining vehicles (though he doesnt' claim to be a certified mechanic or auto engineer) and he makes a comprehensive comparison between each filter that he looks through.


http://minimopar.knizefamily.net/oilfilters/opinions.html


And here are his comparisons between each filter (includes pics of each filter cut open and exploded views) :

http://minimopar.knizefamily.net/oilfilters/reference.html


WHat do you guys think?

Personally, I've used original Nissan, Bosch, Fram and Purolator. I like Bosch the best out of them, because of the price (costs less than the original nissan) and good performance out of them.

I'm with the Total Rubia TIR 7400 right now.. No complaints at all, and much cheaper than my old favourite the Rimula R4...

I will definitely go back with the rubia again next change...

How much was it and where you got it?

Hmm.. I don't usually run over the mark simply because the theory is that it can place additional strain on your crankshaft seals... How true this is for such a small difference, I can't say..
So, I try to go to the top mark and it usually makes it to about mid-marks by time I am ready for an oil change..

Concerning the ZD30, try stepping up your oil a little bit.. No need to jump at $400 oil changes etc but maybe the Rimula R4 may serve you well..

Shell R4 works well in our ZD30 frontier - idles smoothly and good power response.

Thumbs up from me.

Sniper, try 15w-40 eh.. Not sure what other grades they sell in R4, but I really don't think you will need a 50 body oil (if you are currently using that)

Interestingly the Total Rubia 7400 TIR seems quite similar to R4 in terms of performance for me, a bit cheaper too

From my experience having own three 4x4...and travellling from Aranguez to penal 5 times a week..
Schaffer 15w-40 ,,,and can give you up to 15k(Never left it longer,,,even thou they say 20k
Plus use there diesel treatment....every 3k

I have tried, Royal Purple, Amsoil-----give me 8k good, but after that, Burns out in diesel engine and increases vibration, etc
Castrol, shell Rimulax, mobil 1 delvac - Needed to change oil every 6-7k, worst oils I used.
Never used Total, NP ,,,,i afraid of putting them thing in my van.....

My experience is apart from using a good oil,,,,change your fuel filter and air filter every 3k.....In the long run,,,,,you diesel engine wiill feel no different.......

I used the following oils in my van- (fyzabad to Port of spain for the last 4.5yrs)

1) Shell Rimula X (black bottle) - for the first 15,000kms - this oil is the pits- van lazy after the oil does 4000km
2) Mobil 1 Delvac- now this is the deal- ran this for 100,000kms at 10,000kms interval. If the price for this didnt go through the roof will still be using same
3) Total 4X4 diesel - 5,000km- won 2 gallons of this in trailblazers rally so i used it-works fine however its a 50 viscosity vs 40
4) Gulf Supreme duty - 15,000kms so far- 5000km intervals. Works great -reasonably priced.

I found that I'm burning through a full quart of RP 15W40 between oil changes at 10000 kms, however no loss in power. Will probably give Amsoil a try next time since I've been reading a lot of good reviews locally on it.

yeah i noticed i burning almost a quart of amsoil in the navara - but I do my oil changes every 7500km.

Looked up on a popular offroading site and they actually recommend topping up every now and then on synthetics - apparently this helps restore some of the detergent qualities and other additives when you burn off some oil, esp. if you have a longer OIC like 10,000km +.

A whole quart?
then your level on the dip stick would be under the low mark?
mines just drop a little from the top mark, i think is how fast you drive or rev will affect how the oil "burns" out. do you all see any coming out around the turbo lines or in the turbo housing?

nah mih engine clean... and the dipstick was reading "full" whenever i pulled it.

The way I judged it was when I emptied the oil out of the sump pan... i got back 1 gallon + 2 quarts... and usually the nav takes 1 gall + 3 quarts approx.

I'm sure some of it was residual and remained in the engine, while a little bit of burnoff was normal esp. in a diesel engine.
