[doc] Re: oil

The Rule of thumb with oil is to use which ever type was
state of the art when your car was new.
In the D's case this would have been Castrol GTX 10w40,
however the conventional engines type seams to disapeared from
the shelves. A good semi-synthetic 10w40 should do the job.
Don't think you are doing the engine any favours using expensive
stuff like Mobile 1. Its to thin for the oil pump on older engines
and can leak because the machining tolerances are not as tight
as a modern engine.
But as Chris say's everyone has their own ideas.
