Mobil 1, cause you can get it just about anywhere and the price isn't to high, compared to other syn oils. Besides my 95 Neon engine went almost 500,000 miles when a piston broke which wasn't the oils fault.

Mobil 1 0w-40, why? Seems to me that Mercedes, BMW, VW/Audi have done decades of testing and development with that brand and that viscosity. Yes I have a couple of them ferrin cars and use only that with no bad results......so far wink I even use it in several big displacement V-Twin motorcycles and one 1000cc 4-cylinder "flying brick" also with good or is that no bad results. wink

Yup, Mobil 1 . . . Usually can find it "on sale" (walmart ? Canadian Tire (for use canucks) ) at half price for the 5ltr jug !

Lotsa recommendations from B13 guyz ...

Now correct me if I’m wrong .... since I’ve never used M1 .....

Isn’t M1 a darker blend of oil ? I kind of prefer a lighter color oil so you can tell the condition of the oil with it getting darker with age and contaminants..... aka blow-by.

Thoughts on that observation ?

^^^

I'm sure there are other acceptable oils on the market. However, I've been using the 5w30 Signature in my '02 WRX for years and believe it's a high-quality oil that holds up well to modern performance engine demands. I know Mopar says to use Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 0w40 in my new 1320, but it'll get Amsoil when I change the oil & filter the first time.

Just use vasoline. If you worry about oil condition and contaminants get it analyzed.

I agree. I have been using Mobil 1 0-40 fully synthetic in my 2013 VW GTI as soon as the dealer stopped providing no-charge oil changes at 36,000 miles. I now have 150,200 miles on the car. Because I commute a lot, I change my oil between 8-10K miles. The reason I trust the product is that several years ago I tried an off-brand fully synthetic oil (factory weight spec of 5-30) and the engine had burned a full quart by 6000 miles. I know my engine and this wasn't normal at all. Switching back to Mobile 1 resolved that issue. To this day, I can go 10,000 miles on an oil change and burn just over a quart in that time.

I'm sure there are better oils than the Mobil 1 I'm running, but I can get the 5 quarts I need for under $30 and the better oils would cost me more. I'm pretty impressed by it and have no plans on changing.

Now to the Mayor ... AGAIN - this topic is diff ! ... now I’m flattered that you follow my posts and topics so closely.... but I AM SURPRISED that you didn’t mention all the topics about the pillow pimp ??!!

Carry on !

Red Line Performance or Amsoil Signiture. Both cost about the same.
https://www.redlineoil.com/0w40-motor-oil
https://www.amsoil.com/p/signature-series-0w-40-synthetic-motor-oil-azf/

For low cost, Castrol Edge or Mobile-1

Speaking of cost, Mobil 1 can be had for $53.00/12 quarts if you buy the box with plastic bladder inside with spigot. That's $4.42 per quart before tax.

However, 0W-40 "European Car Formula" for a Mopar muscle car? Don't sound right to me.
