Interesting stuff. Thanks for post. I think I will take some time this winter to learn how to read oil tests. I have been using the Shell Rotella 15W40 for the last year. I found some good info in the posts and links. Bottom line seems to be whatever you use just don't try to push it to long.

bangladave-do you mean you have been using 5W 40? I thought 15W40 had some additives that were not good for the clutch

The 15w-40 dino works just fine.

His viscosity was down to 10w-30 after 4000 miles? Boy, he sure is lucky that he got it out of there before he damaged the engine! That was a close one. :roll:

Thanks for the information Toyo, great article. Glad I run Amsoil after reading (a long read I might add at 1 AM) the information. :D
