Re: What type of oil to use? (Wheel Man)

I used 10W30 most of the time that I was in the Bay Area, worked fine, including the tahoe trips every other weekend.. Going to switch back to 5W30 tomorrow to see if I notice a difference or not.

Re: What type of oil to use? (grue)

I used 10W30, for my last few changes (pennzoil usually). This time i went with 5W30 Mobil1 syn. I like it much better, seems to make the engine fun a little smoother, also this past week, i've put almost 700 miles on the car in stop and go traffic for a 2-day concert in +95F weather without any problems. I'll be using the mobil1 from now on.
