    Thread: OIL weight in the South - SC ?

    1. 09-29-2012 11:28 AM #1
      Hey guys, well my daughter has her 91 Cabby now in South Carolina.
      The car had been here in Oregon and running 5-30...what would be the best weight for SC weather?

      Thanks, MandysDad

      I live in ATL, and I run 20w50 year round here, with a Napagold filter.

      Divorces, Great Coffee, and Electrics, all start with GOOD Grounds.

      Where are my grounds ?

      i usually use 10/w/40, and top it off with 20/w/50 as needed.......as to make up for viscosity wear.


      im in FL btw...

      Pennzoil 20w-50.

      Or if you are a synthetic user like me, I pour M1 15w-50 in almost all of my cars.

      First time I have ever seen NY consider SC as a suburb.
