I'm having trouble understanding what you're saying/asking but I think you wanna know if you can use a VM?? Have you tried using a thicker oil (what are you using now) or a HiMi or attempting to address the cause of your oil burning (rings/valve seals) because a VM is just an expensive bandaid while the underlying cause of your oil burning continues worsen..but like I always say, your money - your car....

300K mile engine using 1.5 quarts of oil in 6K miles? That is not bad at all. I wouldn't mess with it. Bump a grade, try a HM oil would be the only things I'd try, if I tried anything at all.

Right!.. there are guys on this board with cars that have half that mileage burning twice as much. I wouldn't waste the $$ on a VM. Maybe a flush and a thicker HiMi lube (10/30 or better) is about all I'd put into an engine that has seen better years.

Amen to that. I wouldn't do anything - but be thankful it only uses 1.5qts in 6K.

One CUP of oil in 1,000 miles.....and somebody has something to say about it other than "HURAH"? I gotta read this thread completely. Also, buying a can of something equals viscosity modification? Without lab expertise I thought that was "playing around". I say this with complete respect.

Again, why not just use a higher viscosity oil to start with?

Give nine friends each a jug for Christmas. Wrap the handles with red bows. The 10th jug could be dropped off at any VFW Hall for donation purposes.

You can. To get near a light 5W30 you would need; about a 3:1 ratio of 0W20 to 10w40 which means 3 quarts of 0W20 to each quart of 10W40. about a 4:1 ratio of 0W20 to 20W50 which means 4 quarts of 0W20 to each quart of 20W50. Addendum: whichever you choose you should really send the final mix to a lab to determine 100C viscosity and the elemental makeup of that mix.

Thank you for your reply I appreciate it and will no plan to send it to the lab because I do not care more about 100c viscosity since I leave in Georgia in USA and do not care will be using mix of xx40 or 20w50 in summer only and in winter 0w20 or 5w20

I'm using the same in my 218K Sable. You could use the the Oil Saver, you could also pick up some qts. of Mobil 1 10W-40 HM and topoff...
