I am going to change over to Mobil 1 in the C this weekend (E450 V10) the moter calls for 5-20 oil. I've been told 0-20 is the way to go. What say you guys + gals? Scotty.

5-20 Mobil will flow better than dyno oil, I'd stick with 5-20

0-20 is leaves more oil on the main bearings on cold start ups, 0-20 is better.

To; Fxrscotty;

Stay with manufacturers recommendation. They built the engine and know what works best. afterall they do not want breakdowns becuase they recommended the wrong weight oil!!!!!


Thanks== Aime==== AJBJRVERS======
