Question for the Scheaffers Guy

Like to use the Scheaffers in my other vehicles but I'm currently using a high milage oil cause of the age and milage. Would like to stay with a high milage product. Can I get a 5w-30 full synthetic in a high milage formula from Scheaffers?
Thanks

Re: Question for the Scheaffers Guy

I've always been curious what makes a high mileage oil a high mileage oil. My bet, it is a gimmick and any good oil is good oil.

Plain old Castrol GTX has kept my dads ranger going for 400k miles on the stock 2.8.

Re: Question for the Scheaffers Guy

Supposed to have additives in it that swell and soften the seals. When I started using it in my wife's toyota it helped slow down the valve cover leaks A LOT until I got the time and money to fix em. Has worled wonders on my OLD vehicles. Valvoline got a product of the year award several years back when they introduced the first high milage oil on the market. Soon everybody followed suit. Gives me a little more time between expensive leak repairs. I swear by it!

Re: Question for the Scheaffers Guy

They do not make a 5w30 only a 5w-20
I run the 5w-40w in mine and the wife's ride see sig 207,000 and counting.
I have the luck of a great REP and that Scheaffers is a 30min ride
At 10,000 mile oil changes with there free oil testing
They make synthectic and syn blends
Here is some good reading

Its been awhile since Ive looked...but I have a feeling you're talking about oil that isnt rated for a diesel.

Re: Question for the Scheaffers Guy

I guess I should've clarified since I am posting on a diesel forum. Duh! Sorry guys. Yes, I am reffering to an oil for a non diesel vehicle. My other vehicles are gassers, wife's Toyota and daughters Plymouth.
