Re: Is 15w-50 too think for DC weather (not an oil war, I promise!)

that applied to 10w-40 dino oil many years ago when the viscosity modifiers they used had a tendency to break down. i don't think that problem exists anymore. i put in 15w-40 delo late in the fall and this winter i wished i had used mobil 1 instead...
