50 weight

Is it just me, or do these motors seem to run better with 50 weight? I had a note from my last one where I went with 15/50. So I did it in this new one and man it seems like the lifters stay pumped up maybe?

It's likely the "15" part of the 15-50 is making a difference to your lifter operation as well.

Is your oil temperature any higher than normal with the heavier oil?
