Default none of the bove

I typically use Total Energy 9000 5w40. we stock this at the shop and it far exceeds what BMW, Mercedes, and Porsche require. I like it for the "no sludge" that I have seen over the years.

Mobil 1 10-40 wt for me. Seems to perform well year around here in North Texas where 100+ degree days are common in the summer. Walmart stocks it, so that is a plus, too.

0w-30 mobile 1 works well in KC where winters get to 0*F and summers get over 100*F.
