Yeah I've used the stuff.

But not everyone agrees on whether its good/bad for your engine. There's a lot of controversy surrounding the issue lol...

At 74,000km it should be nice and clean, and I wouldn't risk it. I'd just keep up the regular changes with the Mobil 1.

My EL has just hit 200,000k i have always used Helex in mine. Maybe it is time for a change, i have never have any problems with the engine. the rocker cover has NEVER had to come off. So, on that what would you guys recon on a new oil for the car. 200,000k always driven hard. what is your suggestion ?

Just did an oil change before Easter to Amsoil 10 W40 In my ED I6 including filter with an engine flush (Amsoil also)

For $65.00 for 6 Litres and 40,000 Km (recommended oil change intervals by Amsoil) between oil changes, whats better Mobil or Amsoil ??

Has better technical properties than Mobil synthetic.

Go Figure
