First of all, syn.oil "might" increase the consumption. Mobil-1 is on the "thin" side: which means that compared with the same weight(grade) with other brands, Mobil-1 is thinner, and burn more thamn the others. What was the reason that you chose M-1? It will be good for very cold weather, 'cause it flows well in cold, but with the temps that you have, I don't see why M-1...Warlockguitarman said:i am changin my oil again, i have 105 xxx miles, it is still burnin it, i am switching to full synthetic, mobil 1, i have bought some 10-30 and i am wondering if it is the best for me, it says 5-30 in the manual and my dad is gonna have a fit unless i can have proof that this oil will be the one i need, the temps here right now are from 65 to 95 on average and winter will bring 20-50 give or take, my car is mostly stock, i still run it a lil hard, not as often but i still do.
AMEN, can I get an AMEN, Brotha!!!! [/end gospel]dirtyd0g said:I agree with anthraxbird. Funny chemicals that stop leaks or rebuild in a can(whatever you call it) are nothing but a waste of time and money. Besides sounds like a good time for a port job
