    Can you confirm which Elf/Total Oil's are Group 4 PAO Based? I found contradicting data on Bob Is the Oil Guy. The best I got was this:

    For the Quartz 9000 series:
    0w30 = Group III (severely refined mineral-based products)
    0w40 = Group IV (Polyalfaolefin, PAO)
    5w30 = Group III
    5w40 = Group III
    5w40 NF = Group III/IV
    Energy 0w30 = Group IV
    Future 5w30 = Group III

    If you found that then I am wrong about it being Group IV. The Total Racing 15W50 is (I use it in the M now) and I assumed that fell into the same category. You know what they say about assuming

    I have also read that all of their Racing oils are Group IV, so you're safe!

    How many quarts do you guys usually buy/put in when you do an oil-change? I've heard anything from 5-7 quarts is what it takes to do the oil-change on our cars. Does anyone have an exact number?

    I believe the official number is 6.9 quarts. So, I'd get 7.
