Is the oil pressure light on all the time? only when the car is cold? only when the car is warmed up? Only when you're idling and goes away when you hit the gas?

If that's the case you can try an oil with a higher hot viscosity rating if it's really bothering you, but you should check your owners manual when you see warning lights come up.

I used this stuff and I used 2 cans of it after changing it after about 1-2k intervals. First can was AWSOME! Last can I believe plugged the holes really good to a point that it felt very clogged. When I flushed that stuff and put in 10W30 oil (GTX from Wal-Mark for $8, 4L jug!!!!) it runs very smooth now.

My recommendation is don't put it in the winter! It will do no good it needs heat to stick to the cylinder walls, and start ups will be hard in winter. Also flush it out after a few 2-3K KM. But overall I think this stuff works.
