I posted a topic about what oil I should be using in my 1993 high mileage VW Eurovan! I hear good stuff about GTX HM oil. Is this a good choice for the van? Or should I go with AMSOIL 5W40 E.Formula? Money is not big issue for me.

If money isn't an issue, the AFL 5w-40 gets my vote. You can at least get 10k miles out of this oil. TBN is around 12.3 for this one.

before ARX application it used up one qt every 3000km with dino oil. I am in the process of cleaning the engine with ARX. I will see if it makes any difference in oil consumption.

since Eurovan uses a very large filter I think I will go with 5W40 and change the oil once a year.
