Would this fully synthetic high performance oil be suitable for winter-use in my Saab 9-3 Viggen? I´m planning on using it only for 5000 Miles. In Spring, I want to replace it with Mobile 1 0W40.

Thanks!

i have spent to many hours trying to find the best oil for my car. the answer is, if you live in europe, mobil 1 0w-40. change every 6000 miles, and you will have no problems.

I have good experience with Castrol RS 10W60. The oil is quite expensive, but it keeps the engine really clean inside.

Gentlemen,

And if you live in Southern Africa where the temperature averages are betwwen 20 degrees Celcius and 38 degrees C?

Should one change the oil apart from the normal servicig pattern every 15,000km?

I have a Saab 9-5 Aero 2001 (169kW 350Nm) driven at the coast were the temperature hovers between 15 degrees Celcius and 25 degrees Celcius. (sea level)

Regards
Daniel
