    You should try to get Mobil delvac 1300 if it's availble. It has a much better additive package for old school diesels.

    Prone to sludge pag laging short trips na hindi umiinit ang makina. I've seen this on a Honda Civic averaging 2kms of travel a day for 3 years. Buti na lang may Auto Rx. I think it might be better to change it earlier than 5,000kms if you only take short trips or always get into heavy stop and go traffic.

    Delvac mx is mineral based, I also use it on my trucks.

    Fully Synthetic Oil is always the better option kung may budget ka naman. Hindi kasi agad nag bbreakdown yung molecules nito so hindi basta basta nag fform ng sludge. It also provides better engine protection against wear during cold starts. Like the posters above me, if you can afford Fully Synthetic every 5k kms, go for it. Best is to stick with manufacturer's recommendations.

    What if you don't travel that much? How long do we change oil? Is 3 months the least and 6 months the latest for Mineral/Semi-synthetic?

    6 months for mineral na multigrade, can be 1 year for semi-fully syn as long as not more than 5,000kms.
