Well, let me tell ya. when I started working on cars professionally, in the late 70's, the way oil was explained to me was there were eastern and western oils. The eastern oils, Quaker state, Pennzoil, etc, were a paraffin wax base and the western oils, Valvoline, Texaco, etc, were not. After pulling the valve covers off die hard Quaker state fans engines, and looking like I just popped the mold off of a Jello or a bundt cake, I opted for Valvoline, till I was turned on to Castrol through Subaru, and that's all I've used since. I have never had an oil related failure and feel that synthetic is better but a waste of money on a daily driver since I can't let it go for more than 4k miles because it's DIRTY!!
BUT... I will be looking into the P6 recommendation by GD because I value his opinion and facts is facts, right?
So, any other Castrol com padres out there, 10-40 in the winter, 20-50 in the summer? Those were the good ol days right?
