Oil be dammed
Right, I have read the detailed thread in the main lounge, but want to see what other 8v Tspark owners have tried.
Since performing an oil change on my 164 a year ago, I have had to top up with 2 litres of Selenia 10w40 in 6000 miles. I don't know if this is average or not - she has now covered 91000 miles. Anyway, I am thinking of trying a 10w50, or maybe 60 in the hope that it will burn less. Anyone tried something that has been an improvement on the recommended Selenia, or will any changes be negligable? Am I likely to put a strain on the oil pump if it is too thick?
What about Mobil 1 for instance? I get a bit paranoid about checking the oil level and would be happier if she eased back on her consumption just a bit.
