Hey Guys/Girls,
Well here is my story - i owned an rx8 for 6 months, and went broke on fuel bills, had to sell that gas hog, bought a nice skyactive sedan 2012 - I just did first oil change last night, used Penzoil Ultra 5w20 oil, it runs so smooth.start up does not sound like a lawn mower in the morning.

Now dont go out and call me a troll, but I am really tired of the 0w20 oil debate and weights, my tail pipes are starting to get black, like my rx8 - this oil is just way to thin, I know its the wave of the future, but I am sticking with the ultra 5-20 i might go 5-30 next change. Will run 10k oil intervals,

Any one else using stronger oils in their skyactive engines? or am I the only troll in this forum?
My gas milage has not decreased at all.

Oh, and I really aplogize to mazda 3 owners all over the world, I use to call guys driving these cars little girls. Now I am in one, I really enjoy it.

Give me your feedback, on your ride, or thoughts - I do miss my rx8 some days, but not the bills to keep it on the road.

I have another mazda that factory calls for 0w20, and I Have been runing it for 20K miles. I haven't had any issues to swight to a 520/5-30, but I don't see any issues with it. Couple of local skyactive guys (not on this forum), and aren't ****,run 5w30 last year and half with no issues.


Oh get ready for all the pansies telling you, your warranty is toast, and your car will be dead next year..etc. Put your seat belt on.

Thanks for the replies... make me feel like I have some friends out there. I want to plastic dip my rims too.. but I am worried I might turn into a ricer, and bling out to much, I only have 155 hp, I tried to do a burn out the other day, the tires would not move. I dont think anyone has called me a flaming troll yet, so thats a good start.

You only have two posts...therefore you cannot be a troll my friend

Dip that shit. No seriously plasti dip ain't Gunna turn you into a ricer. If you want to go ricer style you need a hood scoop from advanced auto and also the side air vents from advanced auto. Lol

I am new to this forum, and site, I see that I am a JR member, can I pay a fee to bump my up to Senior Member?
Not to cut in front of the line, but would be nice.. Anyone here have the new mazada 6> I heard from VP in canada sales are very slow, due to the fact everyone is waiting for the Diesel version to come out, late october of this year.
