So, Iím curious. Would I be better to run M1 5w30 or M1 5w30 EP for 5-7,500k?

I have used regular M1 before without issue. Car is my 09í Camry LE with 128,xxx miles and no consumption. Or I could just stick with M1 0w40 for 5~k

Thank you gentlemen

I canít believe youíre asking that question. Are you searching through your 100+ QT stash to see what you need to use up first? I was just thumbing through the Castrol website and they spec 5w20 for the 4 cyl. and 5w30 for the V6. I donít think it would really matter which one you choose.

EP doesn't go on sale as often. You can regularly get M1 is on Rollback as regular as clock work.
You don't need EP for 5k to 7.5k.

Currently on Rollback

Pick from the 100+ quarts you have on hand instead of buying something else. Not sure which to choose?

Line them up on a shelf in the garage and throw a dart at them. Which ever quart it hits go with that one for the oci. smile

i like the EP in 10-30 flavor as it needs less viscosity improvers since most ALL "synthetics" are group III refined CRUDE oil, but if you live in very cold climate a 5-30 is better + really cold areas benefit from a real synthetic of which there are very few!!

Yes. I'm sure the ordinary M1 would do fine for your intervals, and then some.

We've been not bad the last few days, above freezing, but I did have one day that began to test the oil, with a low of -28 C back a few weeks ago already! It wasn't monograde weather, to say the least.
