Well, looks like I am picking up a winter car this week for $`1300. It's an early 90's Maxima with a VG30de engine to supplement my Infinti Q45. Since I am an Admin on a large nissaninfiniticlub, my winter beater HAD to be a Nissan Corp car. This Maxima still looks pretty decent and if I crash it, its not the end of the world. Pretty car still despite it's 270,000 miles. It would be worth much less if it didt still look so presentable, but I digress.. What oil should my winter beater get. GC Castrol overkill for a car with 270k? despite it being one of the very best winter oils out there. Hmm, I think I will likely go for Valvoline Durablend 5w-30, any other suggestions and why? (Cant promise I will follow them).. Fred..
