Ferrari wants me to use Shell Helix Ultra 10w-40. It is only sold at Ferrari dealers at $15 quart. Can I use Mobil 1 5w-40 at $5 per quart. I have a 550.

Thanks!

I do not understand. After reading my manual on checking the oil of my 550, I started my engine. When it was warm, I turned it off. I let it sit for a few moments. Wow, it was down to the add mark. The manual says that means it is down two quarts. I added one quart.

My neighbor who had asked for a ride a month or so ago was out. I ask him and he wanted a ride. It is fun giving someone a ride in my beast.

I again check the oil. Bummer, it was over the maximum mark.

What is happening?

they want you to use shell because that is who sponsors ferrari. you can use mobil,amsoil,castrol,etc. just use a high quality oil and filter and change it often. i personally would run redline or amsoil if i had your car.
