what kinda oil he using? lemme guess, some cheap arse SAE 50 oil, which is designed for old oil burning diesel engines, because of its thick body. i'm sure his van is smoking, or will start to smoke eventually like an old truck.


i'm using Shell Rimula X in one vehicle, and Castrol Syntec Blend in another.

i used to run shell rimula in the black bottle. I used it for 2 years & then switched to Castrol Syntec Blend because i dislike how thin the shell oils are.
