I would go with AMSOIL 100% Synthetic 0W-20 Motor Oil (ASM) delivers extraordinary lubrication for automotive gasoline engines.

for the fuel system... STp would be great. but before you agree with me, consult more people about this...

AMSOIL 100% Full Synthetic Oil far exceeds the performance of any other synthetic oil. When used in conjunction with AMSOIL Absolute Efficiency Oil Filters, your vehicle can operate for up to 35,000 miles or one year between drain intervals.

In a recent API Comparative Motor Oil Test, no other brand could outperform AMSOIL Full Synthetic Oil in any of 6 criteria (Thin Film Oxygen Uptake Test, NOACK Volatility Test, Pour Point Test, Total Base Number, Cold Crank Simulator Test, Four-Ball Wear Test).

You can view the performance test at this link:

For fuel system cleansing, AMSOIL P.i. Performance Improver Concentrate is the most potent gasoline additive available today. As a concentrated detergent, it is unsurpassed in cleaning combustion chamber deposits, intake valve deposits and port fuel injector deposits. AMSOIL P.i. helps maintain peak engine efficiency, fuel economy, power and drivability in newer low mileage engines. In engines with accumulated deposits, testing showed AMSOIL P.i. provided the following clean-up benefits after only one tank of gasoline:

? Improves fuel mileage an average of 2.3% and up to 5.7%

? Reduced emissions

? hydrocarbons (HC) up to 15%

? carbon monoxide (CO) up to 26%

? nitrous oxides (NOx) up to 17%

? Restored power and performance

? Reduced need for costly higher octane fuel

? Reduced noise from carbon rap and pre-ignition

? Better drivability

? Smoother operation
