G'day Russell,
Is the new Nissan oil designed for both my "old banger" 4.2T/D or just the new, hi-tech 3ltr jobbie?
I assume it is still okay to use the remaining 10 ltrs of Cruiser Oil I have here and that my future orders will be for the new Nissan Oil (if it is designed for both motor types).?
I'm sorry, I still haven't put the new oil you sent me into the gearbox as yet, but plan to do so this weekend.

hello roachie, the reason for the new nissan oil is all the hoo hah over what is actually written in the nissan handbook ie CF-4 Jaso DH-1, to which ProSYN DH-1 meets, and being a semi synthetic should be really good.
in other words, if you can't beat em, join em !
being a 15w/40 it is fine in the old girl and, subject to me checking to make sure, if the hi tech 3 ltr calls for a 15w/40, it would be fine their.
but in my opinion, you can stick yo cruiser if you like.
the gear and diff oils will delight the heavy handed and those with diff locks.
be carefull, there may be an expiry date on that free sample.
regards, russell

G'day Russell,
I just races out to the Nissan and got my book and a calculator.
I've done 3,588klm since I put the Cruiser Oil in and I've used 585.7 litres of diesel. That works out @ 16.32 ltr/100klm or 6.12 klm/ltr.
This does not compare well with the figures I'd recorded prior to that over the life of the truck which were 15.63 @ 6.4 respectively.

However, it should be noted that during the past 5 weeks (since the oil change on 20/3/2004) a larger than normal proportion of my travelling has involved both highway speeds with camper trailer in tow and low-range beach (Coffin Bay NP) and hill-climbing work (up around Warren Gorge SA).

I will continue to record and post my findings, however we are just coming up to the "peak season" for real 4 wheel driving as far as I'm concerned, so the Nissan will be working harder than usual.

The fuel economy isn't my main reason for using the Cruiser Oil anyway; it's the claimed friction reduction (& wear reduction which should follow).

Thanks again.

Hi Russell,

Looks like you got the Patrol Oil just in time for me! I was going to do my 15,000km oil change this weekend, but will now put it off a week (what a good excuse to put an oil change off!!!).

Is the oil a synthetic, semi or just mineral base after all?

Cheers

Captain

g'day mark, it is semi synthetic using group 3, very high percentage, the remainder is group 1 paraffinic. we do not use aromatic or napthenic in anything.
have you ever used IP australia web site (trade marks registrations etc), if so got there and search under synforce, patrol application in place !

Hey Russell,

Is this one going to be called "Patrol Oil"???

When are you putting out a "Prado Oil"???

Seriously though, do you have a specific recommendation for my 1KZ-TE? I will probably be using a private workshop for all my servicing (don't tell Mr Toyota) and if there is a compelling argument then I may ask him to order in and use a specific product for my vehicle. With changes at 5,000k's I will be servicing 5 times a year so I might ask him to order me in a barrel!!!!

Cheers

Steven

hello stevemL, for your 1kz-te, cruiser oil is the go.
buy direct yourself as w/shops have a habit of charging many times cost and will probably want to talk you into whatever they are stocking and using.
a barrel cost will scare the s--- out of them unless they have many that will change over as well.
the above is of course a generalisation, your man may be different as some are.
any good shop will allow you to bring your own oil in, our local toyota dealer for example does, even though they don't get the chance to make money on the oil component. it happens a lot to them now.
compelling arguement ?, ask him to go to our web and have a look, i don't know if i can suggest any more than that.
prado oil, what a good idea !
thanks for the enquirey, regards, russell
