I have an xc70 1998 and use 10-30w or 10-40w "High Mileage" additives seem to help seals, reduce burning oil - we recently re-built turbo w/ a kit and I am soon going to clean out- oil PCV -trap

The hotter the heavier, would not exceed 10-40

Colder, no less than 5-30

castrol syntec 0w-30 very good anywhere, do not know if you want synthetic.

Use synthetic oil because it's the best oil for a turbocharged car.
