In my opinion it's Garbage compared to Amsoil. But it's ok to run. I think mobile 1 is better than the purp.. I ran the purp for about a year and read all kinds of nasty stuff about them.. Did research on amsoil and decided to give it a whirl. Been happy ever since. Only oil i had a problem with was redline, that crap didn't even last 3k..

Just changed my oil with amsoil xl 5w30 @ 60k and it's at 64k now, it looks and smells and feels the same as when i put it in... Should last me a couple more.

Whtever oil you use just make sure to change it. There will be no difference besides engine wear and intervals between changes.. Maybe it will run a little cooler, that's it.

Because our cars do fine on a cheaper synthetic....i run conventional without issue in anything ive owned...i just dont feel the need to pay for royal purple in a car that sees barely any track time. But if you have the spare cash go for it or amsoil

Re: royal purple oil?

I read a lab study of the top 10 synthetic oils. The research was conducted by an independent lab and was not sponsored or paid for by any of the oil manufactures.

They did several tests, but i only remember two of the tests. One was where oil was passed through a series of rollers under pressure and the temperature of the oil was measured and the amount of friction between the rollers was measured. The other test was where they gradually increased the temperature of the oil until it stopped providing lubrication. They had a measured amount of stress applied to some parts and when the parts seized they recorded the temperature.

I don't remember which brands were used in the test, but the Amsoil came out in first place for everything, Mobil 1 was 2nd or 3rd on the tests, and Royal Purple came in dead last in (I think) ever test.

After reading that study, I have not purchased any Royal Purple products.

Oddly, at the time I had never heard of Amsoil or Royal Purple... they weren't immediately available around here back then.

Re: royal purple oil?

i use pennzoil full synthetic 5w20 in my 04 gt. it costs about 24 bucks at wally world. mobil1 is just a couple bucks more. i think its great.

amsoil is good stuff, but just like RP, prob not needed/worth the added expense. go with mobil1 and original motorcraft/fram filters and you(and your motor) will be happy. (and you'll have some extra scratch for next mod!!)

I used it a couple of oil changes before... Didn't really notice anything different except for its ridiculously expensive price. I used Mobil1 most of the time.

It wasn't published online, it was something someone handed to me in booklet form. The one i read wasn't just a bunch of photocopied papers stapled together, it was from a publisher.

Another thought comes to mind now too.... I think it was a test of Motorcycle oil rather than automotive oil because I just remembered that Harley Davidson brand oil was in the test.

I found the tests on the Amsoil site... Royal Purple was not included in the automobile engine oil test.

The test I was referring to was for motorcycle oil, and after seeing it again, Royal Purple wasn't always at the bottom of the list. Bad memory I suppose.

I apologize for posting misinformation.

Re: royal purple oil?

The Mobil1 Extended Service is perfect for me because of the longer oil change intervals and if something goes wrong with the cooling system, & the engine temp rises, I have a little extra protection too.
-That Pennzoil Ultra is supposed to be great for new cars or cleaning up sludge engines, probably the newest of the synthetics + science.

I also read this. This was one of the reasons i stopped using the purp.. It actually is online. If you google amsoil vs royal purple vs mobile 1 it should come up... Apparently they lied about their lubricating protection and there was alot of scoring.. Amsoil was and is the best...

This isn't the exact one i read, but it's something...

And i think this guy ^ is just saying that under extreme heat conditions (like when he redlines) he doesn't smell the oil burning. Witch means it's better than what he was using before.
