    Just got my first FI car,a Saab 9-5 SE V6 and it looks like it's been on dino it's whole life however to my chagrin it looks very clean under the cap. I am thinking about just keeping up with the dino regime because of this and also seeing how close both dino's/syn's are when it comes to...

    5W20 in a Mercedes M112 V6

    Thinking of using this instead of the 229.51 MB rated oil for the next OCI. The engine is a 2.8l V6 with a 8.5qt sump and driving conditions are pretty much 40 city miles a day with rare redlines thrown in. Highway stints are pretty rare too. I think I can easliy do this with such a large...
