Yeah, just wondering what oil you guys are using for your GVR4. I've been using Mobil 1 Fully Synthetic since I bought the car. I've been reading online that M1 isn't as 'good' as what it used to be. So, what type of oil brand are you using?

10w-30 Mobil 1 Fully Synthetic

Castrol Syntec 5w50. Only stuff that keeps my pos 1g lifters quiet, mostly.



How do you make a small fortune racing? Start with a very large one!!!

I really like Rotella T6 Synthetic 5w40. I've been using it since last year with no complaints.



^^ The post above is guaranteed awesomeness in every way possible because the poster is pure Tard ^^

I run Shell Rotella T6 "synthetic" 5W40. It's about $20/gallon at Autozone, quieted my lifters, and improved my MPGs a little bit. If I'm not mistaken, Rotella T6 has more cleaning agents than most. Not an ideal oil if you make a lot of short trips. (My commute is 25mi each way and the car spends most of the year in traffic with the AC on in 100 temps.)

Been running this in 464 over two years now, with no ill effects.

Castrol Syntec Blend 10W-30 usually. It's been getting harder to find it in the 5 gallon value jugs locally, so I may switch to something else.
