Its the Nissan CA20E that loses the most oil. No visible leaks or smoke from tailpipe. Next day after purchase, dips*hit was bone dry. The 200SX hatchback was a fun car though. Wonder if it was the PCV?

If you find yourself across the border, there's a Canadian product called Delvac Elite 222 0w-30 that I'm sure would provide the cold weather performance you're looking for.

My only concern with this truck would be regarding possible new leaks. I have seen older cars with a dry oil pan develop leaks once switched to synthetic. If this happens try going back to conventional or high mileage conventional.

If everyone would just use winter tires you wouldn't need studs. I wish I could afford a set but hopefully my new mastercraft avenger gts can cope this winter. Last winter made due with 3/32nds on front I think I'll be OK.
