Take the car to quick lube oil service of Toyota. charge 15 KD for oil and filter change. Just to save few KD don't spoil your vehicle.

Thank you. I have done that. However, I find the Toyota Oil of poor quality as compared to Oil from France.

Manufacturer know better than a customer what is the right quality of lubricant oil required. There might be good quality lubricants available but that may not be required or not giving any added benefits to the engine. My advice is to go with manufacturer.

How can you say oil quality of France is superior than Toyota service center ?
If you do regular service at Toyota, and there are any repairs,replacements they just do without any questions.

All kind of nonsense people came in with their useless knowledge but nobody answered the original question.

I do agree with Prado. The oil is poor quality and gets burn smell within 2000 KMs. But,Al Sayer has different oil, which is used for Lexus brands, (15 KD more, i guess).

I used to buy only filter from Al Sayer and using synthetic (runs 10000 KM) oil from out side garage.

Thank you JYM. Which Oil do you use/buy from outside ?

Can you recommend any particular brand ?
