Like the title says, I want to know what the best 10w-40 synthetic motor oil for my application is. I am leaning towwards Amsoil because I have used the 5w-30 for the past couple of years. After reading this forum and taking the fact thatt I live in southern California (and my manuak says I can use it) into account I am switching to 10w-40 multigrade. Which synthetic do you guys recommend and why? Thanks in advance.
