Re: UAE - oil change question

No way that using fully synthetic can increase fuel consumption. In fact, the reverse is true. Be careful when using the local Infiniti dealership (Dubai). They use 20W-50 which will spoil your engine over the long term as it is too thick. Dealership uses Enoc 5W-40 and you have to ask for it. Correct oil is 5W-30 according to the owner's manual but the service technicians at the agency are not aware of this (would you believe it). 5W-40 is OK though. With fully synthetic oils, you can for up to 25,000 kms without a change but dealers won't tell you this because this kind of honesty is not very profitable.
