hi all, i have a civic diesel 2.2 & now have 58000 miles on it. i bought it with 50k & the last 2 services i used Lucas racing oil 10 40. i noticed that this oil is being burned. i use the car in traffic all the time with 9 months of sun reaching 40+ for 3 months in a year. the average speed is 16mph.
a can of Lucas of 5 liters cost 95 euros so its not a cheap oil.

what oil do you suggest please because now i m worried?

any help will be appreciated.

thanks

thanks to all for your help. my only problem here in Malta is that you wont find all types of brands.for sure here we dont have Gulf & Redline.i will try my luck with the castrol/motul/fuchs . i will let you know the results.

thanks again

How many litres are required for a full oil change? Is it 6? Because it'll cost near enough £80 because the castrols in 4 litre options

Hi

I don't have the capacity listed, but that sounds about right.

There's a way around that, go for the Motul

Motul 8100 Eco-Clean 0W-30 Fuel Economy Petrol and Diesel lubricant 100% Synthetic

About £45 for a 5L and a 1L bottle.

Cheers

Tim
As you said earlier the gulf competition 0w-30 is a better oil? Works out at £43 for 5L + 1L :D sorted. Now to get all the filters, do cox motorsport do a filters package with no oil?

Oh do civinfopeople get a discount on opies? :lol:

Yes, but if the car has a DPF (according to my data, some 07 cars have them), you need an oil meets the ACEA C2 or C3 spec. If it doesn't have the DPF, go for the Gulf.

Cheers
