Castrol 0W-40 hands down. Pretty sure that LM stuff is LL-04 which IIRC means its not suited for our fuels. Regardless, pretty confident 0W-40 is better anyway

It's most likely your hard coolant pipe under the intake manifold. Coolant seeps out and burns slowly. You'll never see it with a UV light unless the manifold is off. Could happen at front or back.

What leads you to believe you have a parasitic draw? dead battery? if your battery is 5+ years old, might just be time for a new one.

no. and won't happen. no need for it. would require significant resources to reengineer many outdated aspects of the car.
