    Comments: Was using 5w30 but the car ate through it way too quick. Glad I changed to the 5w40.
    I'm interested to know what your consumption was on the 5w30 and how it changed when you went 5w40. what was your consumption, i.e. 1L/5000k etc?
    Cheers

    I no longer have to top up in between services. With 5w30 I was doing it once for twice (1L bottles) in between services. Running Enviro+ 5w40 I haven't had to fill up at all so far. That's with spirited mountain driving as well.

    Comments: Doesn't need as much top ups. Change at every 5000kms, keep under 3000rpm until it gets to operating temp.
