I'm currently running Mobil 1 10W-30 in my Toyota 4x4 22RE with 129,000 miles. This is after 2 ARX treatments. I'd like to try the Schaeffers and German Castrol if I can get it. But I'm not sure what weights to use. The truck did use about a qt. every 3,000 miles before ARX. I;m sure it still uses some, but I doubt as much. Any suggestions?
I have the Delvac 1300 Super 15W-40 in the garage waiting it's turn, but have noticed a drop in power with a thicker oil. Really that's the only reason i haven't used them sooner. The truck just seems a little too sluggish for me. I will try the Delvac though. Thanx! Rando
Check out Schaeffer's #700 15w-40 cold flow numbers. I think you will find they are much better than the Chevron 1300 and rival the full synthetics.
This oil has helped my Saturns oil consumption.
