Re: [DML] Re: Motor Oil??

If you follow Formula 1 racing, you will notice that Shell is a primary
sponsor of the Ferrari team.  I'm sure it's only a coincidence that
Ferrari recommends only Shell oils for their passenger cars...

Use the proper weight oil for the engine and its operating environment
as recommended by the manufacturer.  Change it and the filter often. 
Brand is pretty much irrelevant for street use.
