Re: Engine oil alternatives

Hi Bryce,
I googled the manual for your engine and see that it calls for API Rating CD and 15W40 SAE Viscosity. That's actually an obsolete rating which may explain why you can't find it. Ratings are "backwards compatible" so any newer rating is fine. Current diesel engine ratings include CH, Ci and CJ. Stick with any brand name and you'll be fine. With Malaysia temperatures, you'd also be fine with just 30 weight oil, if the 15W40 isn't available. 
Smooth motoring to you,
