Have to ask how come my engine oil get lesser when using semi synthetic (10W-40) compare to use mineral engine oil (20W-50). Any idea?

Ben said...


I assumed that you are having an old engine that burns oil due to worn piston rings, cylinder bores and valve guides. A fully synthetic oil, being a thinner oil will get pass the worn parts and end up being burnt off much faster than ordinary mineral oil. So I suggested that it is better for you to use mineral oil. If you experience blue smoke from the exhaust, an addictive that thickens the oil may help.
