Interesting note at the bottom of your post there Shagger,
"However, if the engine oil is not available in your country, select the proper engine oil using the engine oil viscosity chart."
You had a tech use GEAR OIL in an AUTOMATIC? Oh my God...
My plan for oil changes is simple: find an oil that meets the specs in the owners manual (Castrol Edge). While it may not be a true PAO-based synthetic, I'll be running 6000km (3500) mile intervals so before the oil begins to break down, it would have been contaminated with fuel from blow by and thus be changed out. No plans to tune, track or drag my car while under warranty so I don't see the need for fancy oils such as Amsoil or Motul.
Plus I'm Canadian and trying to get them stuff here is the equivalent of a car payment!!
Total would be a good recommendation if you can get it!
