Re: Not all oils are equal

IMO...

Interesting article, though you really need to look at the data to see what is going on here. Generally speaking, the higher viscosities performed better. Also, similar viscosities performed the same. Saying Mobil 1 0W-40 is garbage compared to Pennrite 5W-60 is not comparing apples to apples.

Also, it is obvious from looking at the wear patterns on the samples that different lengths of time were allowed before stopping the test. That is the only way that much metal was removed.

The "test" did not keep the test subjects as a constant, so the results are flawed. That stinks because it would have been very informative to see the data.

I love my Castrol, since I own a BP station, i was always a fan of Nitrex oil (which was made by Castrol), and now its all just Castrol.

Very solid oils.

Ha, I wish. The only reason I still sell gas is because were under contract with BP. Id much rather just do auto service. (we do both).

Low/mid/high grades of gasoline all net the same ppg, doesnt really change much. Only time i make money is when the barrel drops, and if i paid a decent price on my last load of gas.

It really is stupid, its like playing the stock market. Theres times where im making .02¢ per gallon, if im lucky.

It was better when my old man first got in business, in 1972. It was a solid .10¢ a gallon, and the price never moved.

You better change it VERY often.

I've seen way too many modmotors killed because of RP weak additive package...........mainly seems to be in the VI additive.

Viscosity improver.

The oil seems to thin out much sooner than most.

Re: Not all oils are equal

I have been using full synthetic Car Quest store brand oil, which is re-labeled Valvoline. At our local Car Quest Auto Parts store, it is priced at half the price of Mobil One. Six quarts of oil and a K&N oil filter and the tag was $36.

No problem with them. Engine is really clean inside, and I'm a stickler for maintenance. Bosch was the best I could find around here right now for some stupid reason.

Re: Not all oils are equal

I use Mobil 1 5w-20 with a motor craft filter, i usually change the oil due to color instead of mileage.
