I have used valvoline synthetic before. It's really good I still prefer mobil 1 but valvoline is a very good alternative.

Castrol edge / syntec is great oil. Used it for years and I love it. It is often cheap and it kicks *** on Mobil 1 in stress testing.

Highly recomend sticking with those, particularly synthetic since that is what you have been using(I asume u know that already). Also, you don't need to change those quite as often, saving money in oil and because synthetic isn't as prone to breakdown and thinning due to heat, its much better for ur engine...saving you much more money. If you find a cheaper synthectic, I guess that's fine.

He may have been using that oil to keep it from burning oil. Otherwise I don't see any harm in trying the thinner oil. If you can still contact him, ask him why he used such thick oil.
