N/A, I use 10-30 but its got to be synthetic, a lot more safer at high RPM's and only the best for my Supra! I've also herd the Havoline and Valvoline are the best, there the least to "sludge up" no QuakerState, not sure if its true tho.

10-40. Synthetic is good stuff. I rate them like this based on my accounts:

1) Amsoil
2) Royal Purple & Redline
3) Mobil 1 & Castrol Syntec

Conventional oils are pretty equal to me, although I usually stick to Castrol.

Ya, Castrol makes some good oil. WHat I like to put in mine, and it consumes oil pretty well without it, is STP Oil Treatment. It's $3 and it's thick sh!t. SUppossed to protect the engine at start up. I doubt the brand of oil really matters as long as you stay consistant with the viscosity.
