  Hello everyone,

  I thought I would throw this out to everyone if it hasn't been ask before.  What oil would you use in case you didn't have any straight 40 WT in a

 emergency situation?  I personally carry enough for a oil change.

Straight 30 weight is usually available.  Much better choice then 15W-40.  Good Luck, TomC

Any good S/C rated universal 30w or 15/40 oil will get you by in a emergency without harm to the engine  

good luck
