Hi all,
Advice on engine oil, using 15w40 mineral, can I switch to full synthetic? Which grade and why. Live in South Africa Western Cape, temp between 8 and 35C.

The Nissan FSM recommendation is SAE 5W-30 viscosity oil is preferred for all temperatures. SAE 10W-30 and 10W-40 viscosity oil may be used if the ambient temperature is above -18°C(0°F). You can switch to a full synthetic motor oil which is IMO a preferred oil. It provides superior lubrication at all temperatures and lasts much longer then conventional dino oil.
