I would stick with the recommended viscosity, but I just changed to Valvoline Max Life Synthetic blend. I could actually "feel" the difference in the way my 37 year old engine runs. That stuff is super-slick.

that's pretty much exactly what I ended up doing and you're right you can feel the difference. I'm well on my way to 300,000 miles. thank you
