Try out one of the high mileage 10w30s, such as Pennzoil or GTX HM, both of which are formulated on the thicker end of a 30wt, and should reduce consumption without costing an arm and a leg. Or you could try Pennzoil 10w40, which is a thinner 40wt oil.

JohnnyG , If a 45-70 can't get the job done try a : 25-20,32-20,44-40,25-06,30-06 Just remember the first number is for WINTER SHOOTING! [Big Grin] For gear lubes try: 338-06,300-378,338-378 [Roll Eyes] For an all-round,do anything straight-weight I like my 458 !!!!! [Wink] Mark(tongue firmly in cheek) p.s.>Don't forget to add Lube Control & #132 Moly EP! [stretch]

Had an oil analysis on a pump come back with ISO 57 oil in it one time (supposed to be ISO 46). When I asked the greaser to show me the drum of ISO57, as it looked like a great compromise between 46 and 68, he turned a tad red, and the next analysis was spot on 46 again.
