Hey guys I have Mobil 1 5w 50 in my car and I constantly rev her up. I find that I add 200- 300ml every 200km. Should I switch to a 10w 60 or 10w 40? Climate where I live goes down to 10℃ and highest is 40℃
As David said - and I tried to say +10deg C is warm - there is no need for 5W / 10W (winter capability -20C / -15C) You can go to 20W50 is you want to stick to 50 viscosity
No, it is NOT - 1st learn about oil - the 50 is the viscosity at 100degC. 40 is "thinner" than 50 and 60 still "thicker"Isn't that a bit risk?
Have to say, your posts do read a bit odd...I will rev her up at leat twice a day above 5k and usually change gears between 3.2 to 4.5k. Again performance and car care are my priorities not money when it comes to oil.
