    i checked my dipstick today and found its pretty damn low!! after searching the net and here i found that castrol edge sport 0-40w would be best for my car. some say it improves the mpg and performance...performance i can understand but mpg?? is this true, also does any1 know how many litre's my car would need if i were to change my oil?...or would i get the same outcome as if i just topped up what i already have...cheers

    you wont notice any difference tbh, not in the way it drives.

    minimal mpg improvement possibly but minimal!
