    In my personal preference, I would go with regular motor oil with 5000 km oil changes.

    At the oil change intervals, you don't really change the oil. You remove the dirt and contaminants mixed in the oil that the oil filter can't remove.

    sa label ng oil---just wanna clarify:

    "synthetic" is it different from "fully synthetic"

    etong ginamit ko is zic - "synthetic" while ung ginamit ko before na motul h100 "fully synthetic"

    Just replace your oil every 5k kms, whatever kind of oil you're using, if you can afford it and have extra cash then go for the synthetic pag wala then mineral oil is enough.

    i am using semi synthetic, then replace every 5,000 km.

    I think na max ang every 5000 km chankge oil pag mineral, i think better kung mga 4,500km or less ay palit na.

    prone ba sa sludge ang mga nag change oil every 10kms particularly the one using synthetic/ fully synthetic oil?

    Follow the recommended sched and type of oil by the manufacturer esp kung under warranty just to be safe. If may budget, go fully syn or at least semi-syn and a good oil filter.

    para less prone sa engine sludge go ka sa 5,000km oil change, since small interval lang kaya good na ang mineral oil

    ako rin but much lower at every 3000km ako. Mineral oil. this is much better than every 10k with fully synthetic. no engine sludge on a Toyota!
