depends on outside temp.

depends on the age of the engine also.. how worn are the bearings..

so how cold.. do you plan on operating it..

winter... down to -20C probably 5w-30 is as thin as i would go..

you might want to think about a synthetic oil for any colder than that.

10W-30 or 10W-40 above 0C or 32F.

i don't know if the oils are rated in the same specifications as they are here.. i am hoping so.

i cannot wait to see .. russian corvette dash cam videos..  with the multiple cameras to see the peoples faces as you drive past..

engine oil weights are all covered in the owners manuals ..  i looked at one gm factory service manual.. it said to refer to the owners manual.

i have a personal request...

if you can contact any groups that are working on the frozen in ice mammoths.. ask them to sample the ice in the layers around them.  

i am thinking that the ice might have fallen from the sky from the north pacific possible impact site..

Sitka alaska is in the upper right corner of the image below.


the feature seems to be about 18 miles across or 28 kilometers. that would have thrown out a significant amount of ocean water.. that could have fallen for thousands of miles away as ice..

there is just a small chance of it being sea water.
