Hi,

Im Roland from Germany and Im a member of this mailing list since today.
So I have received my 1st 15 mails and in some I read about this oil problem.

Ive been driving aircooled veedubs for more than 10 years now and Ive always used the
cheapest oil that I could get. With this oils I have went to Rome ( 4000 km there and back ),
I have climbed the mountain Grossglockner to 2577 meters altitude, I drive it summer and
winter. Once with a beat up bug, I wanted to find out what happens if you never change the
oil again ! After more than 100,000 km my test was over, beacuse the car had major rust holes,
but the engine was still running ( Usually I don`t do things like that ).
The only thing that I always make sure is, that the car has always enough oil, that`s all about
oil.
By the way, I usually use 15 W 40 oils. Tempratures in Bavaria rage from -20 C to 30 C
