:beer: Whats everybody using this year? Post up!
Mobil 1 for now but, based on UB's extensive research, considering shift to Amsoil 10W-40.
Quality stuff! ^
Oil Poll. Everybody vote, Please.
Hey guys, Take a look at this thread and cast your vote. I'm really curious to see what everybody is running this year. We all know how picky us Terminator owners are with our oil! :rockon:
Mobil for me. I baby my car and change regularly. I probably could use motor craft..
Amsoil signature series 5/30
i voted other
castrol gtx 5-20..6qts
stp oil treatment
motorcraft filter fl820s
well over 300k..no leaks and doesnt burn oil
Royal Purple XPR 5W-30, a Royal Purple oil filter in all three vehicles.
04 SVT Focus
04 SVT Cobra Mustang :rockon::beer:
But if I did not get employee pricing I would switch from XPR to HPS as the bang for the buck factor for a mostly street driven vehicle is quite significant.
The XPR race oil is pretty expensive to make.
full amsoil here. Signature Series 10W-30
Amsoil Signature 5W-30 with either a Puralator Pure One or EA011 filter.
My mother has a 2004 Lincoln Town car with the 4.6L 2V engine. Previously, it had Amsoil ATM 10W-30 in the sump for exactly 1 year, just over 10,000 miles. Currently, the car has the same oil in the photo above (RP 5W-30, non-HPS, new bottle) purchased from Pep Boys. I bought it when they had the $35.00 deal for 5 quarts and 1 filter. This oil is scheduled for a change at the 1 year mark and will have experienced the same mileage and driving conditions.
I already have the UOA on the 1 year Amsoil fill. This June, we will have a side by side comparison.
Perform UOA testing on XPR at the oil change interval, or ban! :read:
I was skeptical at first...but The Beast made such a compelling argument on this site that I just had to take the Amsoil plunge.
As for me its Amsoil Signature Series 0W-30 in the winter and their Signature Series 10W-30 from spring to fall. The UOA just doesn't lie. And I beat her good during the summer months. The oil doesn't doesn't lie.
Yea I am using Amsoil z rod .... and love it.....
Always used this in my 89gt. Has a 302, s trim and other goodies making over 500 to the tires. I have considered switching to RP because it will only cost me a couple bucks more and i run the RP in my cobra.
Amsoil in both cars. 10w-40 in the boss and 0w-30 in the GT. Only caviot is that i may have to provide the dealership with some oil for upcoming warranty work. Good news is i can give them the oil i desire. Bad news is it has to be 5w-50. So it will get a load of redline.
Are you using this is a collectors car, or something that sits in a garage all year? Perhaps a car that is rarely driven?
Dealers are now asking for an oil sample? Please clarify...
Different stuff in different vehicles. My general go-to oil is Royal Purple 5w30 HPS.
