      I only use castrol 5W30 now, I was using penrite in my BMW M54 and it had intermittent misses under medium throttle which disappeared as soon as I used castrol (because it was on special at supercheap).

        intrigued how oil could contribute to ignition misses - unless it some vanos issue?

          I've noticed Valvoline Syn Power 5w30 is $40 at Bunnings of all places.

            Probably exactly this. I also use Castrol full synthetic...in 10L bottles in my range rover... It was 35% off or something and meets the required specs.

            Even the last few cars I've used magnatec or whatever it is and no issues. Changing the oil before it's full of petrol (for short trips) is more important than the quality imho. Different if you are tracking/racing it.

              Interesting about penrite, I used to buy it in 20 litre drums (well, once, maybe twice) but if you buy it 5 litres at a time you only need one empty 5 litre container to start an endless supply of empty 5 litre containers.

                At work, I use whatever is easiest to get that carries the necessary approvals. Usually Ravenol or Penrite. Sometimes Liqui Moly.

                As for OP, need to know what spec 5W30. I'd be surprised there's a cost-effective one that does all 3 cars.

                  The Castrol oil app recommends Edge 5-30 for all types three.

                    Make sure it meets approvals and move on with life.
                    The 5w-30 and 0w-40 with A3/B4 label are very good. I personally use the latter as I give no fucks for economy. Forgot the other specific differences.

                      I don't know about missing but the latest generation of oils have all been developed to help minimise LSPI.

                      I assume this is a result of vapours coming through the PCV system, and I guess all cars burn a small amount of oil it may only be 100ml every 10k but it will still end up in the combustion process somehow.

                        Yep, GR Yaris needs LSPI grade oil to help prevent that.

                          Had to look up that acronym, wonder it that's what happened to a friend's blowed up turbo Redblock? Pretty sure he plumbed the blowby pipe into the intake instead of yeh atmosphere like you are supposed to.

                          Do any common oils not meet "API standards"?
