    Re: Revised Engine Oil Specification
    Applied Model: Y61 & D22
    Applied range: ZD3O Engines

    Please be advised that the specification for the 011 fill on the ZD30 has been revised. Engine Oils that meet the specification listed below are the only oils that are permitted for use in the ZD30 Engine. 011 Specification: ACEA 83 or JASO DH.1. Nissan strongly recommend that a viscosity rating of 10W40 be used. For specific viscosity relating to ambient temperature ranges please refer to the viscosity chart in the relevant workshop manual.

    Note: API CG-4 0118 must never be used In the ZD30 engine.
    To support the revision in oil specification, Nissan has developed a
    semi-synthetic 10W-40 engine oil that meets all the operational demands of this engine. The revision of the new oil specification is retrospective and will apply to all ZD30 engines.

    The oil will be available from Nissan Parts & Accessories in 51t and 200lt Quantities using the following part numbers.
    51t- B3005-10W40PK
    2001t- B3200..10W40PK

    Other members there use fully synthetics (eg. Mobil1 5w-30) for their zd30 with no problems. Hope this helps....

    checked castrol's website (, they even suggest magnatech (with change oil intervals every 10-15t kms), or castol edge for zd30. Ang gulo. Sabi ng nissan di puede gamitin ang semi-syn and synthetics na oil but i guess bagong development yung sa Nissan Aus.

Nissan new recommended oil for zd30
