I ran 20W50 castrol GTX all last summer, I'm going to switch to Mobil1 20W50, and I'm running Quacker state 5W50 Synthetic right now. Starts up a lot easier in the cold than the 20W50

Don't strip any bolts

And if you can, get 5W50. It doesn't make a huge difference, but if you drive it hard on warm days you'll burn a lot of the 5W30.

15W-50 Mobil 1 synthetic.

5W-50 Castrol Syntec for the winter.

If the second number is lower than 40, it does NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT belong in an M20. 5W-30 is unaccpetable, 5W-40 is just enough. May as well get the 4.4L jug of 5W-50 though, it's like $33.99 at Canadian Tire. The Mobil 1 is $34.99 there.

I was off by a dollar on each, 5W-50 is $34.99 and 15W-50 is $35.99.

Thought I'd point it out before someone cries about it when they get there.
