I prefer Valvoline, but I also used to work at a Valvoline, so... I'm biased.

Synthetic motor oils that meet the specs ACEA A3; or ACEA A5 (being thinner in viscosity & meet the gasoline mileage saving requirements).


Wix/ Napa Gold/ Carquest Premuim Blue oil filters are my choice.

PF-52 oil filter size is > PF-47 oil filter size
BITOG forums for all your oil needs
