I have a EM6 300 with over 500k on it that I know of. When I lug it down to 1100 rpms, the oil pressue is maybe 30psi. Has anyone used straight weight oil (like 30w) in their engines? I live in CT but don't use it after November. The straight weight oils really keep the 2cycle Detroits together.

I have a e 7 454 that only has 12 15 psi at 600 rpm hot, and maybe 30 at 1100, i would run 15w40 and put some lucas in with it.
