poll: What oil are you using and what change interval?
 
I was following the factory 7500 rec but maybe not anymore.

Where is the poll? Mobil 1 started at 10,000.

pdw 06-15-2006 09:28 PM

Ok, not a formal poll. I'm not going to put all the potential combinations in. Just list what you do.

I get four free oil changes per year from my dealer, so that's what I do.

MiniStiGuy 06-15-2006 09:42 PM

Whatever the dealership puts in is what I get and it gets done ever 3,000 miles.

Opie, how do you like the Motul and how does it compare to Mobil 1 or Amsoil?

The Motul has been fine, I haven't had any issues with it (consumption, sludge, etc). Seems to work as well as the Mobil1 I had used on previous (non-turbo) cars.

Amsoil 10w30 Turbo Formulated synthetic and factory filter every April and October.

(Made the switch to synthetic from Shell 10w30 around 9500 miles)

Redline. I've used it in everything (gokarts, bikes, frying pans, etc.), I'll nevr use another.
