I work at Advance Auto and the best oil to use is Mobil 1 Synthetic. I myself use Valvoline SynPower 5w30 due to the fact that it was buy one get one free at the time. I've run it ever since and I like it. But my other friends use Mobil 1 Synthetic. But for regular oil...I like Castrol GTX.

i doubt it's giong to live up to the hype. people claim they feel such a difference, but come on. in reality, who the hell can tell a difference between 260 and 263 whp?

I guess I'll be the first to find out about that. So far over 2 years and 71k miles later the discoloration when I change the oil looks good so the 'puter is working too. *knock on head*

Wife tell me I'm too trusting............

You created a thread asking people what oil they use. they post what they use and then you tell them they shouldn't use it:eek:. What exactly is the point of your thread:confused: - to try and change everyone to using the oil you use:confused:?

um yeah thats exactly it... mobil 1 is paying me to be a forum spy and change everyones thoughts on there oil....

there were other oil choices that i didnt bash, i bashed one oil.... and i only warned him of the possible down the road damages to his car from using that oil...

but your probably right... i retract my statment about Penzoil... use it all you want it is the best oil ever made and will never gunk up your motor...

(i thought a forum is a place to share information and tips... i must have been wrong)

LoL! You got it, that's all that matters. It's not my place to berate you....but...."Nailing" someone for their answer has a way of stopping the flow of ideas. Others may not post because they don't want to have you "nailing" them publically over their answer. There's no right or wrong answer to your question.
