Default What oil do you use?

What are your preferences?

Considering my dad used my $60 jug of synthetic royal purple on his Honda 1011 lawnmoawer (I don't think any other honda lawn tractor on earth would be running royal purple that must have been the most expensive lawn tractor oil change ever....)

Anyways oil change time..

I may go back to RP but I may not. Opinions?

Your car seems sluggish because of the oil? Not sure if srs. Maybe go with 5w-20 instead of 400 weight, you snow bastard.

I used Mobil one on mein red car, it apparently didn't like it as my variable cam timing started acting up, according to the guy at the dyno tune, three valve engine are quite picky about their oil, specially higher mileage ones. He recommended I just go back to the factory Synblend.

5w-30 here, not serious but does seem sluggish after the last oil change... Im thinking it is the fuel pump as she takes a bit to start sometime (not the alt)
