Lotus Service Notes / Manual says ---

5W/30 or 5W/50

V8 Esprit Owner's Manual says ---

5W/30, 5W/40, or 5W/50

Mine is a fairly low-mileage car (5,300 miles) and 2003 model year. So, I'm thinking of splitting the difference and going with 5W/40 -- fully synthetic, Mobil 1, of course.

What about you all -- what do you run in your V8 ???

I use Mobil 1 5W/40 in mine. It's got 13K miles on it, so a little higher than yours.

I use 5W/50 Mobil 1 in my 99 and change it every couple of thousand miles which works out to about once a year.
