I prefer Wesson's Canola. It makes french fries extra crispy, just the way I like 'em.

Hard to keep up with all the oil change threads going on this week.


BTW Welcome to the forums and please use the Search function at the top of the forums

General rule of thumb is to use anything thats 5w-30 and read up on that link Throckmotron gave you!
