Would you use a 5W-30 oil,for 6K miles OCI with the following specs: API SJ/ SH-EC; ACEA A1-98/ B1-98; FORD WSS-M2C-913-A; FORD WSS-M2C-913-B; FORD-WSS-M2C-912-A1?
German Made Oil. Divinol 5W-30 Multilight. My dealer wants to use it for my Mazda 6. They recommend 10.000 km OCIs. I don't feel comfortable with this choice.
I would certainly be OK with it if the 6k miles was put on in a reasonable driving style . I like the looks of the 0w-40 better [Smile] but the 5w-30 blend looks simalar to the Mobil Super FE Special 5w-30 which in turn is like or close to the Saab 5w-30 Syn Blend imported into the U.S.A . Solid , reasonably shear stable 9.5 cSt oils .

Xenos, why not use an A3 rated oil for 10k km and call it a day...eg. M-1 0-40. It's like the local Mercedes dealer here...they want to use A-1 rated M-1 5-30 because in their minds "only AMG's get the 0-40".... Recommendation: Bring your own oil (or do own OCI) depending on if you want to have the dealer stamp or not while it's on warranty.
Well that is what I plan to do, bring my own oil. The owners manual also recommends 5W-20 SL oil. I was thinkimg of using either 0W-20 Fuchs Titan GT1 or maybe Aral 0W-30. Both are A3 rated synthetic oils. If the dealer gives me flack, I will have him do the oil change, stamp the book and then go home, dump the oil out and put the goof stuff in. I drive relatively aggressively, red line it on occassion and temperatures in y part of the world are mild to hot.
