- Thanks David and all.
Today I searched the whole town and finally found 5w-30 and removed the w40. Also filled 3 liters.
I hope I will get back my 44mpg
Thanks all for the education I have not slept well entire week
It was most comforting to know better brains were thinking of my problems

I insist over other's objections that if he can get any 30 weight oil (not not 30W which is not the same) such as straight 30, or 10W-30 that it would be better than anything 40 weight as he has now. All he can do at this point is try it but haven't heard if there was anything available in 30 other than 5W-30 was not. I say the 2nd number is more important and others have insisted the 1st number is the most important.
