    Can someone post what the US manual says about what weight oil to use in the car? (recommended and alternate viscosities)
    I run 15w-40 Delvac diesel oil in my turbo Cordia, mainly for the higher zinc content and the ability to handle the older style turbo (TD05-16G) since it is an older engine.
    I have been using 5w-20 synthetic Mobile 1 (recommended) in my Outlander since new and it has 96000 miles on it with no issues.

    The recommended oil here is 0w-20 synthetic. Other parts of the world get different recommendations, but we get the 10/100 powertrain warranty. They don't. Since most wear occurs on startup, I guess Mitsubishi wanted an oil that flows really well when cold?

    My engine has started to use some oil as it approaches 100k. Once my supply of Mobil 1 0w-20 AFE runs out...along with the powertrain warranty...I think I am going to switch to something a bit heavier. Like maybe a 0w-30 or 5w-30.

    I just use 0w20 synthetic. Started with Mobile 1 but now use cheaper klondike brand. Getting close to 240xxx miles on one car it still runs fine.

    I don't see the ILSAC starburst symbol on that bottle, but maybe that's because its on the back label or otherwise out of view.

    I have always wondered about using the Mobil 1 European 0W40 in these engines. I know it probably isn't needed and might kill mileage quite a bit but this is a great oil for the money. Someone here was going to do an analysis using that oil and I have never seen a follow up.

    My GF and I both have 2015 models. They used a tad of oil during original break-in but I never added oil before the first change at 3000 miles. They have used no oil since and I have been on the Mobil 1 0W20 EP (gold label in US). The last time I changed my oil it was a hair over the full mark (not enough to hurt). 5000 miles later I checked again before changing and it was still a hair over the full mark.

    now the question is, since our mirage indicates in the manual to use a 5w-40 shell only has a semi synthetic 5w-40 but offers instead of a 0w-40 full synth, and from my last 5k PMS i went to fully sinthetic. is it ok to use a 0w for topup or should i change the oil in full? and will the 0w-40 work fine with our engine in a tropical country like ours?

    Hello from Turkey,

    First of all don't use semi-syntetic oils. Always use fully-sythetic oils..

    My Mirage is nearly 70.000 kms. I am continuing with Eneos fully sythetic 0w-20, which i am quite satisfied with.

    When i talked with Eneos Distributor in Turkey, he advised me to use 0w20 till 150.000 km, later switch to 5w30.

    0w20 or 5w30 can be used in Turkey, depending on the city you reside.

    I prefer Eneos due to stability in hot temperatures and high viscosity index.

    Besides Eneos; Motul, Mobil 1, Liqui Moly, Petronas and Gulf are the other oil brands of good quality..
