  1. Hi., have a problem regarding about this article. You said that grade oil to be used for young and low mileage with a certain grade to be use, and for older and higher mileage using certain grade of oil. My question is, how do you discribe young and low milage? What range 0-999999 km? Second matter is for older mileage, start within which range?

    1. As per Shell definition; above 100,000KM. But from my experience, if you never experience white smoke or engine oil keep on reducing, your car is still “young”
