5-50 Castrol in the black bottles. I used it in most everything for years. In a Chevy Astro minivan is the first one I remember. It was a new 1988.

I still use synthetic in everything.

Target had a huge automotive section at one time. I remember them clearancing out Mobil 1 15W50 Extended Performance for literal pennies. I bought all they had.

Mobil 1 in the early 80's. I have not used a dino in anything I owned since that time inc OPE engines, motorcycles, antiques and diesels except to wash out deposit removing chemicals.
