    What is the best oil to use?

    I live in Houston so it don't get to cold out here. What works best for you'll? I was thinking Mobil 1 but I'm not sure.

    Read everything in this link and in the threads linked from this link, then read the owner's manual as well. Pay close attention to the "new" specifications in the link and the shorter change interval dictated.

    Yeah not a simple question to answer, but without generalizing I can say that there is a large population over on NASIOC that swears against Mobil 1, claiming engine death for using it...

    Contrary to what is recommended for our cars, I use Motul fluids exclusively in mine and have had great success.

    There's a large population that swears by Mobil 1 too though... so I wouldn't say either way.

    I use either Lucas' or Mobil 1.
