Quick question about oil


Recommended Posts

Hi, got a qucik question about oil now i know that the aurion can use different grades of oil. I currently use a 5w-30 oil which is fully snytheic my question is can i only use a semi-syn or fully-syn?

As during a disscusion with a famliy member said that i should be / reccommeded a 15w-40 oil or a it might of been a 10w-60 now i can get this in the current brand i am using but i want to try a different brand and in those viscositys they are only mineral.

So can i use a mineral oil? and is running a 5w-30 good? all the online lube match guides reccomend it as the best choice.

- Cheers

5w30 is teh booombz !

not really sure, could be placebo, but i used a 15w40 one time, and tried 5w30, ive noticed that the engine cranked quicker on startups, and acceleration seemed a bit quicker
