ok i was wondering how many quart of oil do you use, what motor, what brand and weight?

for me(i don't know if this is normal or not) but my k20a takes 5 quarts to hit the second dot. i used castrol 5w30, but it seems the oil gets very milky after 3000 miles. i just put in royal purple 5w30 2 days ago to see if it makes a difference.

What do you mean by milky?

I've used mobil1 and royal purple both are great. My lil single cam loves royal purple, burns no oil and seems to run quiet too.

Also I've used regular mobil, castrol, pensoil, and no name stuff.

Just change it when it gets dirty, that's what I do. I dont go by mileage :eek:

I use 10w-30 for auto x season, summer and 5w-30 for winter

You ever drain your coolant and checked it?

I`ve used mobil1 and castrol both are 10w40.. (both my `B`and `K` series setups)Working perfectly but burns some oil ..I think it`s normal for high-revving engines.
I`m planning to try motul 10w30 on my next `k24` application.
NOT: I live in CYPRUS (hot country..same as Miami ??)

Also before 4 years I tried to use Shell 10w60(for high revving engines,Ferrari 360 modena certf./also bmw m3) on b16b..very good in high rpms..hard vtec..but eats oil like fuel.. :D ... ohhh i like to try diffrent combinations.. :D

I used mobile1 on my B18C5, the engine took alot of abuse and was running like new...but damn the oil consumption.
For my k20 I tried amsoil. The engine DOESNT burn oil, but maybe it is just a question of time before it starts to.

I would say that for the typical midrange consummer, probably the mobil1 is a good bet(specially for the price, I THINK that nothing can beat it)
My friend has a EK GSR. It happens a couple of time that he just did not check out his dip stick.... When we did the oil change, there were maybe 1/2 quart left! I was omg must have hurt the engine...But nothing happen. He was using mobil1
