For now go with Nissan recomended oil 7.5/30 genuine nissan
fill up 5 litres
in the meantime head over to SAU and see what others are using

how many k's on the clock?

10w40 is probably a bit thin for the age/km's of your engine, assuming its got over 100k on the clock

id use castrol edge sport 10w50


but yeah if its low km 10w40 will be ok, especially for winter

I was thinking of going 10 50 however having just clicked over 65k i figured it should be right and jesus did it make a difference. the engine itself felt smoother (slightly) witin 2 services the oil is draining out alot cleaner to compared to that 300V Chrono that i used to use

Its not a bad oil however when i was buying it, it was $94 or so for a 4litre bottle... which meant i had to buy two lol i am paying $98 for a 5 litre bottle of Royal Purple and i noticed a big difference in the two, the oil drains alot cleaner now (after the first 2 cycles of RP) it alwasy drained veyr very dirty when using the 300V. also doesn't mean much but the engine feels to be a little more free revving now with RP compared to 300V

yeah i have heard of people having the same problem..i found it smarter to buy a 4 litre and a 2 litre, after my 2nd oil change my oil was draining alot cleaner than the crap the last owner had in it.

Royal Purple is THE DOGS BOLLOCKS. I remember some magazine had a big comparison ages ago with actual results and proper testing and the RP shit it in.

Wait are you saying rp is good or bad? I seen two tests and EP came out awesome

10w40 is too thin for a 100km plus rb26 IMO..

You dont want to spin a bearing...put Motul in it. 300V Competition or Le mans.

If you can afford not to use Motul...then dont.

Pretty sure the reason why your oil was dirty, is because 300v has cleaners in it.
