Are any of you guys using RedLine 5w20 in your Range Rover 5.0 Liter instead of the hard to get Castrol Professional?

Are there any special requirements besides 5w-20?

What is the OCI on that vehicle.

There are boatloads of well regarded 5w-20 and 0w-20 oils to choose from

Redline carries no API specs (which doesn't mean it isn't a good oil) but is probably not a good value for your dollars.

I ran 5w-20 RL in my echo for maybe "a couple hundred thousand miles"

2004 Prius; 102K; ASL
2007 Yaris 78K 0w-40 Castrol
2006 B2300;132K;ALM
