hey prynce im located in toronto as well, i bought my car at 135k on it, and went right to synthetic right away with no problems , for the first while i used mobil 1 0w40 for winter and 15w50 (i tthink it is) for summer. if you wanna learn more about how oils perform check the FAQ forum ..here
as for types to use, i currently use lubromolly (hard to find and not on shelves) , mobil 1 is great and very trusted by lots, as for local shelf oils (like you would find at canadian tire) another good one to try is quaterstate full synthetic its recommended by lots of mechanics and is very affordable in comparison to mobil 1 and lubromolly.
lots of people have opinions on oil but read that FAQ and you will better understand them and will be able to make the choices you want to with a little more knowledge and understanding.
|in a test Consumer's Report has done twice now I believe, they tested different oils out on New York Taxi cabs figuring these vehicles have to with stand a lot of abuse from stop and go driving. The conclusion they came to was that "oil is oil." In other words, as long as it is automotive oil suit for the temperature range of your car, it will work quite well. It is more important to change your oil frequently, than it is to use the "best" oil.|
