So let me understand something about the different grades. They signify the weight/thickness of the oil or do they signify the ability of the oil to keep from 'breaking down' at certain tempratures?. If both are similar then once an oil is warmed up are they useful at the same temprature and the only thing seperating them is their ability to keep it together at high tempratures?.
The reason I change my oil every 3000 miles or so is because at around mile 1500 the oil starts to darken. At around 3000 it is dark I dont feel safe with oil that has lost its color. Maybe that is a problem also but I'd like to stick to the subject at hand.
Finally I wanted to put in a high pressure pump but I was talked out of it by the guy who rebuilt my engine, I have been considering the high volume oil pump for sometime.
