    Oil again

    Just read the label on the "high mileage" (green container) Castlol container. I seemed to me the only difference was that it was better for the catalytic system. I found no other apparent other differences. I've always used 20w-50 in the white container. Am I missing something?

    I'm using Pennzoil High Mileage in my Saturn Vue with 115K. It definitely stops a lot of the oil leaks. Am adding maybe 1.5 qts between 5k changes vs 2.5 or more.
