Wow, yesterday I refilled Mobil Delvac 1 5W-40. What a different noise coming from the engine bay. Smoother revs up, quiet and less vibrations in higher revs. Thanks Gents for recommendations! I've converted to Mobil Delvac 1 5W-40 till I can source it here.

Bringing up an old thread but in the search of an oil which meets the specifications of our engine I came across Titan Unimax Ultra MC 10W40. The specs are as follows:

ACEA E7/B4/B3/A3
API CI-4
GLOBAL DHD-1
JASO DH-1

On the face of it it seems to tick all of the requirements for the ZD30 engine.

Not knowing anything about this brand has anyone come across Fuchs?

Been around for eons, it is a German Multinational. Out of interest, what are you using now and what is the reason you wish to change.

I'm currently using Mobil 1 Delvac esp 5w40. I don't have an issue with it.

I was after a 10W40 synthetic oil which is JASO DH-1 compliant and this is the only one I can find (apart from Penrite).

I tried one of the Fuchs Titans in my TD42 although not synthetic. Worked but the motor was noticeably noisier so haven't used it since.

Ran Fuchs in my truck once - after the 2nd oil change (5000k intervals) noticed increased white smoke and bearing noise. Thought, "it can't be the oil", but went back to rimula X and smoke and rattles cleared up.

Don't use Fuchs unless you want to Fuch your motor.

Hi guys,

my Di was fully rebuilt 2 weeks ago, remapped, dawes&needle, 22psi boost, egr system completely removed. On last oil change I used Mobil Delvac1 5w40 (still have 11L left) which i read was one of the best oils for the zd30 but now the mechanic used Liqui Moly Top Tec 4100 5w40 synth based oil which he uses in all diesel 4bys and says its great oil according to tests. Mind you, I'm in Europe so lower winter and summer temps.

But I can't find anywhere is that oil right for the zd30 according to specs, oil grade is not the question, for Europe Nissan recommends 5w30

Liqui Moly Top Tec 4100 5w40
