[DML] Re: motor oil

The manual calls for 20W50 in any temp above (I think) 30F. I've seen 
lots of people run 10W30 because that's what they run in all their 
cars. I've not really heard of a problem with this either, but most of 
these cars are not getting driven hundreds of thousands of miles. It's 
most important to keep the level up and change it once in a while, at 
least yearly even if you seldom drive the car. 

I use either (conventional) 20W-50 or (synthetic) Mobil 1 15W-50. Based 
on observations tearing engines down on this and other cars, at this 
point Mobil 1 or other quality synthetic is all I'll consider.

20W-50 seems pretty heavy by today's standards, but in the 1980s was 
common in European engines.
