Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

: The local jeep guru says it's OK to run the newer 10w-30 weight "High Mileage" motor oils in my '46 CJ2A.
: Is it OK or should I stick with the recommended 30w?

: PS Great website!

Pete, Oil has came a long way in 50 pluss years and unless your plowing fields all day and their is something than more than normal I don't see a problem with multi-weight oil,. I heard that the 5-40w had some problems with GM vehicles, as the oil broke down in the 20 to30w range but that was in the 80's. If your motor is strong, no problem with it, go for it. I would take more concern about oxygenated gas, in this part of farm country it is almost hard to find without the ethanol?
