So what oil and grade are you using...I've used couple, but currently don't have a fave: Rotella T6 (5w40), Mobil 1 - 0w40
FWIW, I have a 4.2, so need about 9.5 quarts
If I change it, I've been using Castrol Edge - same thing Audi puts in and they've only been charging me $69 for oil and filter - or Mobil 1 (still think that is the best - been using it since it first came out). That said, VIP was selling Castrol for about $24 a gallon while Mobil 1 was around $35. Then I took a closer look - 4 quarts Castrol but 5.1 quarts Mobil 1 - DOH!
If my indy changes it, he uses Pentosin.
Pre-Audi years it was all Mobil 1 except for the Cummins which got Amsoil and I never had an oil burner (but did have one leaker - 87 Supra Turbo).
Another good question - brand of filter. I'm not thrilled with the local auto store options.
