Re: Oil

Yes, you are. Particularly as the engine gets higher in mileage (100k+), using something like 10W-30 or 10W-40 may help a little if you are having issues with the engine using oil.

Yupp, if you start having problems with the engine burning some oil, go with a heavier oil and it should help prevent this.
