    I ran mobil 1 and Rotella T6 previously and they are junk compared to this oil (based on the amount burnt and the "Feel" of the motor). The European formula Castrol is incredible oil. There are some threads on a couple forums about it and overall it has great reviews. I used to burn nearly 2 quarts of oil in 3k miles. Now I don't burn a drop.

    Edit: I will also add that German Castrol is the only 0W oil I would run in my car. If anyone wants more info on it just search google and you will find lots of threads. My local Autozone carries it and though its slightly more expensive it isn't outrageous. It should say "European Formula" on front and "Made in Germany" on back
