WHAT OIL? CFS 10/60?

Im in need of an oil change,

My car has done 105k miles (pretty high) just before i purchased the car, it had a new krank (fitted by subaru). so i would prob half the mileage as the krnak its a major part.

What oil should I buy?

A few people have metioned millers CFS 10/60. Would this be ok?
I dont use the car for track days, its mainly used for comuting to work and shopping, and the occantional hammering when someone attempts to overtake me etc....


sorry if this has been asked 1000000000000000000000 times b4.

i uses a 5W/50 SW, 100% syntetic

if your not tracking the car ( i dont either lol) i dont see the point in getting ~W/60s or higher grade oils . i would more look at the APL grade and make sure the oil is 100% synthetic
sinse the better grade tere protects the engine better.

Any of the following would be ok

Motul 300V 15W/50
Silkolene PRO S 10W/50 or 5W/40
Mobil 1 Motorsport 15W/50
Castrol RS 10W/60
Millers CFS (I used both a 10W/60 and a 5W/40 in my prev Scoob and it was fine)

If you are really concerned then try contacting Oilman on here I'm sure he will give you some advice 8)

I use Silkolene PRO S 10W/50 now.
It comes in a 5 litre container :wink: Handy when you need 4.5 litres for the turbo model
