What's wrong w/ Castrol?
I've had my 308 for about a year and a half and have encountered several problems, but that's for another day.
A belt service was recommended last week by the guy who's been doing most of the work, an ex-Ferrari dealer technician. I told him I would like to use Castrol 20w50 mineral oil, as that's what the PO and his mechanic had been using and suggested I use. Today I received a VM from my mechanic stating that we 'need to talk about this Castrol routine thing'. Is there something I am missing? Have people had problems w/ Castrol? Is there a reason not to use mineral oil? I see no problem continuing with the type of oil originally deliverd w/ the car and ostensibly used over the years since. And if oil changes should occur every 3k to 5k miles why not?
Any thoughts, experiences or recommendations?
