lube it up
So what do you guys think is the best oil to use? And why? Since I'm in MAss and push my car a bit I'm set on 5w30. But what about brands and synth, synthblend, or natural?

i don't have synth in my car right now, I'm thinking I should slowly move to synthblend then full synth. What brad do you use?

Just put in full synthetic. No need to put in a blend first. I use Mobil-1. Good stuff.


300,000 KM/Sec. Its not just a good idea, its the law.

Do it much better oil, lasts long, more resistant to break down(viscosity), coats engine better!!!

I can't get redline or AMSoil around here, looks like it's mobil-1 5w30 for me. Any "formula type" I need to get?
