Hi all

I recently brought a MR2 MK1B NA in T-bar form last weekend and loving every moment of it. And it has a healthy long MOT on it [Smile]

It needs new engine oil as the current oil is low. My plan is to remove the old unknown engine oil and start using the new one.
But I just needed some recommendations on what other people are using on theres?
It seems like anything with 5W30 is the real winner right? I was looking at the Mobil Super 3000 X1 Formula FE 5W-30.

I always used 10w-40 Magnatec. It's an old engine which would have been designed to use 20w-50.

5w-30 is a bit thin so you'll probably burn through it.

I used Fuchs 15w-50 in the 4AGE when I had my AE86.
