Post KLZE owners
Just wondering, how many of you that has the KLZE is running with synthetic oil? Because I don't have the guide/manual for the KLZE, I'm wondering if it's a recommended oil or if I should just use the "dino" oil.

Thanks

Surely most of us use pure synthetic in the ZE. It costs too much and hauls to much a-- not to ;)

I thought Castrol and Quaker and even Mobil were looked down upon when it comes to synth oil? I guess using Mobil isn't so bad then. :)
Maybe I could save money with Castrol

Hmm, from what I've heard the oils are not bad, it is the filters that they make that are not the "best". I use Mobile 10w30 syn. in all my cars.

Mobile 1 5w30 or 10w30 depending on the car for all my cars!

I use cheap filters but never a fram filter (junk).

Change my oil about every 5000km (first few after switching to synthetic at 3000km just to get the dirt out)

I used mobil 1 full syn 5w 30 (and mobil 1 filters) for 3 years but finally read that castrol gtx regular oil was almost just as good if not better! however the mobil 1 extended performance ranks right below amsoil...

then of course I read about amsoil and I have been using it for about 6 months now in both my cars (5w 30 and amsoil filters). I have noticed that they burn much less oil now and I have seen slight improvements in gas mileage...

amsoil FTW :wink:
