Thanks for the info!

Correct me if I'm wrong but the Mobile 1 15w50 is approved?

I will probably do 4 or 5 changes this year so that's why I was thinking of switching to the 15-50 during the summer. (i.e. May - Sept for NV/AZ).

On a side note, I got my first oil analysis kit so I'll be sending this past oil change in. Hopefully that will give me some guidance.

I'm just here to change the world.
