Lightbulb OIL related topics = Oil Thread!!!

This is my DOT = Diesel Oil Thread!!!
Oil threads come and go; but I can never find the right one.
PLEASE HELP:
If you know an oil thread on this or any other Diesel forum, please add the link here.

I may avoid posting to oil threads; but they can be interesting and funny to read.
Thank you all...

whunter, did you have to put oil in the title? Your going to get in trouble for starting another oil thread regardless of being a debate or not. A forum veteran as yourself should know better then to start an OIL THREAD!!!

Maybe we need a committee....

It seems that there is enough collective experience on the website to form a committee of sorts of the "old hands" to formulate recommendations regarding "the oil question"

I mean, if faceless nerds from SAE that weren't even a figment of their parents' imagination when most of our cars were built are coming up with rec's, maybe the old hands could post their recs for oil, and, in a single post (should I call it a "consensus statement," to make them feel important), give the recs that anyone could be referred to, as well as link the posts to why these recs were made? I must say I would not count myself among the sages able to formulate these rec's, but I can propose a putative set of questions to be answered that would guide the discussion:

Focusing on 616/617/617 turbo engines:
1) Synthetic versus Dino?
2) Weight of oil: summer use (above 32 F?)
3) Weight of oil: winter use (below 32 F?)
4) Weight of oil: extreme summer use (above 100 F?)
5) Weight of oil: extreme winter use (Below 0 F?)
6) Do recommendations change turbo vs non-turbo?
7) Diesel-specific oils (i.e. C-rating) versus Gasoline-specified oils?
8) What qualifies as heavy use?
9) What qualifies as standard use?
10) Oil change interval synthetic (standard versus heavy use)?
11) Oil change interval Dino (standard vresus heavy use)?
12) Oil additives?

Maybe a group could come up with recommendations to answer this list, or people could develop their own specific answers to this list to refer people to. At least this would structure the discussion so that we don't continue to have an infinite variety of queries regarding various aspects of the "oil question," without dealing with the question as a whole. If anyone can copy and add additional critical questions to be answered, that would be good too, as generating a list of the questions is the first step to answering those questions in detail.

Round two

For new members who think additives are a miracle cure..

They claim this stuff will

#1. Boost MPG.
#2. Cure mechanical problems.
#3. Fix electrical problems.
#4. Cure the common cold.

Just look at their UNBIASED data...

Just for a change of pace. Links to a test that says it is bad to change your oil too often:

Engine wear actually decreases as oil ages. This has also been substantiated in testing conducted by Ford Motor Co. and ConocoPhillips, and reported in SAE Technical Paper 2003-01-3119. What this means is that compulsive oil changers are actually causing more engine wear than the people who let their engine's oil get some age on it.

Cracking up.
Perhaps we should only change it every thirty years or million miles.

The W in say"10W-40" does not mean weight. It means "Winter viscosity". There is no weight in oil measurements. By the way, what does "TDI" mean as in the club TDI?
