The reality is that there are many quality oils so close to each other, that as long as you perform the changes as recommended and use quality filter, it won't be an issue.

I use royal purple. I'm sure equivalent full synthetics are equally good. Otherwise. Engines would blowing and sludge would be complained about all the time.

The "my oil is the best and everything else is *****..." Routine sounds a lot like people and their favorite teams... And it gets old.

And yes, I'm sure some lab somewhere will show differences between oils... That isn't real world proof...

Get a brand you trust and feel comfortable with.

Remember all oil comes from the same place. It's just what additives are in it and knowing what they really do. Research has never hurt

Mobil 1, Royal Purple, Amsoil are all true synthetics and do not start with a petroleum base like many other big name brand synthetics. You can compare additive packages within the same type of synthetics but not like a Valvoline or Castrol against a Mobil 1 or Royal Purple. Regardless of any of this though all of these companies have their limitations to be within SAE in order to comply with manufacturer warranties. All of these companies also have amazing race oils which would void your manufacturers warranty. Hence Royal Purple SAE and Royal Purple Hpi. In the end though I agree just stay with a quality oil and filter and change it when you are supposed to.

Dealer change and warranty

No, you do not have to have the dealer change it but if you ever have an oil related failure, you will need to document you have had it changed as per the owners manual. Just keep your receipts and note the mileage on them. The quick lube places and other reputable shops will itemize # of qts , filter and mileage. Since I've done this myself, I save the receipts from where I purchased oil and filter and mark the mileage on there, as well as in the manual.

Ncowboy is absolutely correct, to get the API donut, ILSAC SN qualifications, all oils must demonstrate the meet the licensing requirements listed in ASTM D4485.
If you got $45 bucs or so, you can buy it from their website, ASTM International - Standards Worldwide. These list a battery of engine and bench tests an oil must pass to be qualified and all these test results are forwarded to API before the company gets approval. Please not that most of these specs are a minimum performance, so its hard to differentiate between oils and those test results are not made available. So, in reality, it is almost impossible to know for certain that Oil X actually performs better than motorcraft, goodwrench, or even PQS, sorry, Penzoil Quaker State. I know this because my job involves all of this. 20 years ago, there was a big difference between synthetics and conventional oils, but now not so much as the performance specifications have gotten much higher and more synthetic components are making their way into conventional motor oil.
