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)

could definitely be the fuel pump. or maybe just the drain back valve failing. try turning the key on and off a few times and see if it starts quicker. if you do replace the pump only buy an OEM motorcraft or a Walbro. if you buy any cheap pumps it will last about a month or maybe 3 if youre lucky

I use 5 qt of Castrol Edge & 1 qt of Lucas oil synthetic stabilizer. I need to change mine in the 2014 as I just turned 5,000 miles.

I use mobil 1. Motorcraft is supposed to be good too.

I use 5w-20. Why? because the difference between 5w-20 and 5w-30 is like 8 degrees. unless you have a precise thermometer you wont know which works best, but they both work well in the 190-210 temp range. So it doesn't really matter anyway.

I should use something like 10w or 15w being so cold here, but I only change my oil once per year in the spring, I don't drive it much. (Drive the truck more in the winter).

Used to use mobil 1, when I got my '12 GT I decided to try Royal Purple and noticed an improved overall smoothness and bump in power. I wanted to go for amsoil, but it was difficult to find.

1 year or 10,000 miles is the recommended oil change interval noob. I only have like 11,000 miles and owned it for 3 years. No way would I change oil after 1,500 miles.. tis silly.

You got it backwards Mishri. The colder the temp, the lower the first number should be.
