  1. but automiraj at dematagoda recommended 5W – 30 oil for the hybrids. So its bit complicated who s right and who is wrong?


    1. Dear Kasun,

      No need to make the things complicated :).

      I have asked you to follow manufacturers’ recommendations. And also i have provide you the thechnical points of doing such.

      If somebody / organization asked you to deviate from manufacturers’ recommendations and do something else, Please ask “WHY?” from them. If they give a reasonable answer, please post it here and we can discuss about that.

      Anyway, the ultimate choice is yours.

      Thank You
