      I usually run a 0w or 5w..When I had my Jetta and thats what I used in my ex's GTI all year round out in this place...But I was talking to my co-worker who is a Ricer and he said that he runs like a 20w since its thicker...But he also doesn't run fully synthetic in his little v-Crap engine

      This is only available in Alabama. Fantastic blend, by only joining related molecules it keeps the final product much purer. Sadly everyone else has to make due with more mucked up blend of Mobil1.
