    Always use the oil weight what your manufacturer recommends which is 0w-20. Otherwise you will void your warranty, engine companies have researched over many years and tested various viscosity levels for proper lubrication.

    So it begins.

    If you want general information about this oil it easy enough to just Google it. I will tell you that it is a French owned company with roots dating way back in the USA.
