what is the best oil?
What is the best oil for a Celica? My dealer only said use 5W30 oil. Synthetics are expensive. What is the best "conventional" oil? Who has the best price? What is considered to be a good inexpensive oil? Thanks, KenC

I have always used Castrol until a couple of years ago when some parts guy told me the that Exxon superflo is Castol repackaged under the Exxon name. The Exxon is usually cheaper than Castrol...
