I just switched to straight 30 wt after the trip. I had been hearing
recently on the vintagebus list that multi-weight oil is not good to use in
out engines. This is due to the fact that our engines run too hot for the
multi-weight oil. At the high temps the polymers in the oil-that help the
oil provide a range of viscosities-break down, and you end up with the
lighter weight oil.
Hope that makes sense, if not I can try to dig out the website references...etc.
