a good 5W-40 is fine...

Take a look @ Rotella T6... it's cheap and very good oil.
This...

Causing excessive wear...

Just use 5w30.

MAYBE 10w40

on the weekend switched over to Rotella diesel oil (15w40) for the eta. First thing i noticed is that the valve chatter is gone, but i also notice that with the thick oil, going from 60 to 100km takes even more time! watching the tack needle rise is literally like watching grass grow!

Well looking at pg 52 of the owners manual according to the chart the best oil for winter would seem to be 10w40 being rated for -30 to +15C and for then for summer a 20w50 being good for -10 to +50C.

And yes I'm in a mood to wake zombies today bwahahahahaha
