Re:


The diesel arrives in the country with Fully Synthetic oil already in it. The engines are run before being installed in the vehicle at the factory.

The diesel has a 10,000km service interval, so I get oil & filter done in between the regular services.

I had the oil changed at the inspection service then went to Castrol Magnatec Professional at 5000km.

Re: How soon did you change to full synthetic oil?


T30 June 2004 went to 10W40 semi Penrite till around 80,000 when went to 10W50 full synthetic
and now 295,000 mostly flat chat plus except for last 30,000 or so. Runs like a bird & no oil
use or leaks anywhere. All sorts of roads & tracks. Son has it now and brags to any one who will listen. He is B double driver.

T31 CVT July 2011 straight to 10W50 full synthetic and at 135,000 is very well thank you.

Old motor reconditioner friend in Brisbane said he ran his whole business on Penrite because
parts out of Penrite motor a "clean" golden glow.

Won't tell you what he told me never to use !

Re: How soon did you change to full synthetic oil?


My 2010 T31 [sign in to see URL] X-Trail is coming up for it's 90,000km service. It has always had semi -synthetic 10w-30 from the dealership. From what i have read, I can move straight to a full stylistic without a flush? I would like to use [sign in to see URL] last car went 450,000km on that oil.

Re:


Nissan changed the DIESEL oil spec in certain 2012 - 2014 build T31's from C3 to C4.

If you haven't already, U need to call a dealer with your VIN to establish if the C4 spec applies to you.

Since confirming the change applied to mine, I've been using the fully synthetic oil Castrol developed for Nissan which is EDGE C4 0W30.

An alternative is PENRITE ENVIRO+ C4 0W30.

Hi all,

Is it ever too late?

I have 104 000km on the clock, is it still worth it?

Cheers

Jack
