What weight motor oil is now recommended for the GTS ...
Seems 10W30 is no longer top choice ...
I was just talking about this with a buddy yesterday and browsed the forums... Seems like the prevailing wisdom said Mobil 1 full synthetic 0W-40 for street use and 15W-50 for very hot climates or track use.
I’m no expert so maybe defer to the more experienced guys here if they say otherwise.
Just got the word from Jon B .. 5W40 ... full synthetic ...
Guess any really good full synthetic will work ...
0W-40 Mobile 1 is pretty easy to find and not too pricey. Its what I use in my 96.
Another word from Jon B ... 0W40 also good ..
Lane concurs ...
Going in tomorrow!!!
i haven't been keeping up with the oil discussions... why is Mobil1 Full Synth 10w30 no longer good enough?
From the research I've done, 0W40 is recommended for later Gen Vipers, and is approved for use in Gen 1 and 2.
I made the switch after reading up on that. 10W30 will prob work just fine. I liked the additive package in the European formula 0W40 Mobile 1
Regular changes is way more important than brand and in some case even weight.
good to know, thank you for the info!
I use the European formula 0W40 Mobile 1, too. It was recommeded by Steve Indy.
I run Rotella T6
Ditto, T6 5/40 in my 92. Oil analysis always good. I recommend sending an oil sample at each change to Blackstone to see how your engine is doing.
for a 96 GTS what is the preferred oil filter part number and how many quarts required?
just researched the mobile 1 0-40 european formula has been slightly changed. now there is an rs lettering designating the new formula which may offer less protection than the original. can anyone confirm this?
