    Amazon Royal Purple Oil Filter with RP oil deal
    Amazon.com: Royal Purple Ultimate Oil Change Deal

    Or I can get @ PC cost Amsoil XL 5-quarts for about the same amount of money,except with no filter.

    This is for our Explorer,what would you go for? :shrug:

    I can't make an educated recommendation on Amsoil. I have no idea how their product line breaks down.

    As for RP, I'd spend the extra scratch and get HPS.

    If you're looking for cheap dino oil I always had good results with Castrol GTX. What motor is in your Explorer.

    Scoot on down to your local walmart and pick up a 5 qt jug of Pennzoil Ultra for 27 bucks.. There problem solved.. Signature Series otherwise..

    OP, sorry, you will not get any base RP love from me, as noted from previous threads in the Greasy Spoon.

    As stated above, find Ultra local or buy Amsoil on your PC account.

    at least you bought Fram's best filter. ;-)

    Ultra is a darn fine lubricant! No complaints from the Amsoil guy.

    Only fram I'd ever use..

    Would've put a motorcraft on it but not common enough to find in parts store. And ain't gonna run her long enough for a EAO.. Next time though she's going to SS 5w-30 and a EAO filter
