Does anyone run Liqui Moly 5w-40 in their EJ?

I can get it cheaper than Motul which is most commonly used. same spec SAE 5w-40 LEICHTLAUF.

Ive used it for years in my german cars and have always been happy with it.

I did.

I've only compared it to Shell Helix Ultra 5W-40 and Total Quartz 9000 5w-40 and for my usage the Shell and Total will start to need topping up at 3 months mark - the LM Leichtlauf 5W-40 will not need topping up until around fifth months. That was before I added oil cooler to my STi and later on I added Ceratec since I am impressed with the LM brand.

Right now I am on Motul 300V 5w-30 to test how effective is my oil cooler in extending the life of 5w-30 oil, but I will definitely go back to LM Leicthlauf 5w-40 or maybe the LM Molygen 5w-30 since I have oil cooler.
