Im running 5w40 API CJ4. I went with the lighter weight because down here its not so cold and the lighter weight also helps with fuel milage. I've liked it so far and have seen an increase in fuel milage.

The 3000 series 5w-30 you bought is going to be a lot better than what your currently running for a couple of reason. Extended drain intervals. It has a very low cold pour point. Basically colder temp it flows a lot easier because its not so thick. Also its going to help your MPGS, because of the lower viscosity it wont be so hard on the motor which will make it run a little more smoothly giving a little more power and better fuel milage. You can run it 3XOEM. I wouldn't go over 50,000 miles on it unless you do oil analysis. Then I'd run it until the analysis says to change it.

Hope that answers some of your questions. If you have anymore I'll try to answer them the best I can. If the get to difficult I suggest you try mrmanner he can help you a whole lot better than I can and has a better knowledge of this than I do.

Petro Canada. Lower base stock % than Amsoil for half the cost. :)
He already bought the oil and was asking about the benefits.

Forgot to add on the 3xOEM that is if your using amsoil filters. If they are not then you need to change filters at oem intervals. In your op it just said filters so I wasn't sure what they are.

That will be my next oil on my oil change..... I was quite surprised to see how clear that oil is compared to other brands. It's like 100% pure oil with no dye!

Yep, bartling has a crap load of it, ask scott for the brochures and give them a read.
