Folks,

I'd like to know which is better. And what would you recommend putting on mine. 98 DSE with only 76000kms done.

Regards,
Gayan

It all depends on temperature conditions in your area. If your temperature is warm and sustained then a single weight 30 would be fine. If the temps fluctuate a multigrade would be recommended.

Thanks for the info. Temps here in my area are mostly on 25c-30c range and doesn't fall below 18c (on extreme and rarest occasions) and above 35c (same here).

I'm currently using Mobil Delvac 1340

G-unit.

A Synthetic multigrade Diesel engine oil 15w40 weight should be used and your brands of product would be more specific dude !

Mobil Delvac lines are normally used for stationery motors such as gen-sets, so your source availability tends to be important ?

Understandably the BMW 2.5ltr TD donk is normally designed to operate in lower european climatic tempreture conditions, so changing to an 85 degree C opened thermostat is a common improvement done to imported vehicles in Australia/New Zealand.

Cheerio,
