    Mobil 1 for now but, based on UB's extensive research, considering shift to Amsoil 10W-40.

    Royal Purple XPR 5W-30, a Royal Purple oil filter in all three vehicles.

    99 Navigator
    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.

    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:

    :-D

    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.

    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?

    Different stuff in different vehicles. My general go-to oil is Royal Purple 5w30 HPS.
