Oil discussion...once and for all. Lol

We ask about oil because we want to feel like one part of this mysterious machine is under our control.

The manual will tell you exactly what to use, if you don't trust your own judgement. Not a guess, not an opinion. Sometimes they even give a specific brand .

My old boss wasn't too sharp. The company bought us new service trucks. 2008 ford's, with the v10 engine.

He ended up being fired. At that point we realized he had one 36,000 miles on the original factory oil.

The truck was sold, running, five years later and it had 250,000 miles without any issues.

In all the motorcycles, cars, lawnmowers, etc I've never had an issue that was related to an oil being good, or bad. Oil has to be good enough, and that's it. Exceeding the "good enough" spec makes people feel good.
