    I think everyone here would recommend Mobile1 Synthetic, but most name brand oils will do you good.

    yeah... i now that mobil 1 or castrol are good brands, but never heard anything negative about Valvoline, so I'll try,.. I just did an oil change... lol

    for a Mobil 1(5w50) or castrol (10w60) syntec oil I pay 28us per Quat, or liter, and this valvoline is 16us per quat... so we'll see how goes...

    I have a Drag car... and I only use the Castrol 10w60, the engine need that..... but in my truck, I do not need to spend so much in Oil...

    I've been using liqui moly 10w40 syntetic, but I am not convinced,now in the oil change, that liqui moly oil, comes out very "washed", like water...

    Mobil 1! I have used mobil 1 synthetic extended performance since forevers ago. Both in my truck and car. One time I couldnt afford my mobil 1 so i bought some valvoline sythetic oil. yup... thats the last time I use that oil. My car started making weird engine sounds. and the exhaust smelt like crap... long story short valvoline sucks imo. switched back to mobil 1 and everything is perfect.

    Silverback I'm not always a dick. Just kidding, fuck off.

    Mobil 1 full synth, Castrol Edge, or Royal Purple. Only oils I will use.

    Mobile 1 plus the oil filter.
    I switched over from Pennzoil a long time ago. I noticed a difference, the engine turned over smoother and was a little peppier.

    Your oil change with M1 is US $154? Wow...

    Let us know the next time you need to change your oil. It has to be cheaper for us to buy at $35 US & ship to you...

    is a cool idea.. but.. it is 17us x KG.... 6kg = 102 + 35 = 137us... is not a big diference..., that is the shit, if you live in the 3rd world...

    good stuff.. is 3 times more expensive...
