: I have been using 20-50 castrol oil in my '02 for years. Some one recently told me that I should be using 10-40? I think he's yanking my crank. Any comments? I think the '02 motor could make piss water out of any 10w-40 oil.
:I have found that 20w-50 works well on high
mileage cars. Castrol 20-50 seems to burn excessively. I use Valvoline 20-50, which has
reduced consumption in both my 73tii and 84 GTI. The GTI has 220,000 hard miles and the head has never even been off.
