    worry less about what kind it is, and change it more often.

    Maintenance is the key to long life.

    That is a full on race oil. It is similar to Swepco, and some otheres, it is meant for long sustained high revs and high heat. A lot of spec miata guys run that oil, or Swepco in their cars.
    At the moment in my civic I am running 10w40 as with 10w30 I was burning a quart of oil every 1000 miles, now I burn a quart every 2500 miles, at which time I add half a quart, and go 500 miles and change my oil.
