I think you'll get more exposure here with your question.

Now to answer your question. In MY personal vehicles, I have used 10w-30. None of this synthetic stuff. Just good ol' dino oil.

I've always used Castrol High Mileage 10W30. 207K miles and no engine problems.

I use Castrol as well, I believe the same weight 10W 30. That is the only oil I've used in all my vehicles since I started driving. My Dad swore by the stuff. My ex-husband would only use Shell R-Tella-T. I think that was good for trucks too, we never had a problem with any of vehicles with either oil.

I put in the same stuff 3K ago. I don't think I'm going to use it again. I just cannot get behind the extended life. I checked the oil at the gas station and it looks pretty dirty. I think I may go back to good old dino juice.
