02 Nissan Sentra: It currently has 10W-30 ST that I'm using for several very short intervals as flushes after having a coolant leak repaired. I then will install the Schaeffer's 10W-30 Blend I have on hand. I want to try the Schaeffer's 9000 5W-40 when I can get it in Quart or gallon sizes.

99 Nissan Sentra: Schaeffer's 15W-40 Blend. I also want to put in the Schaeffer's 9000 5W-40 when I can get it in appropriate amounts.
