Chevron Delo 400. It's got the extra zinc the older cars need. The Rotella brand is also a good choice.

If neither of them are available then choose an oil specified for older diesels. Not the low-emissions stuff.

It depends on the oil pan. I believe it is 6L but it could be 8L.

Start with 6 and add as needed.

Rotella is the brand name for Royal Dutch Shell. I'm sure they have outlet stores near you.

http://thailand.deloperformance.com/ for the Delo.
