February 3, 2009I usually just put the standard penzoil. I don''t know of any significant value with brand *or* standard vs synthetic.
February 4, 2009I use Havoline 10W-30 in my truck. Have since day one. Yes, I know the truck is supposed to use 5W-30, but I haven''t had any oil related issues with my truck. As for my Jag, I use Castrol 5W-30 in it.
As for brand X being better than Brand Z, if you do some research, you will find that a lot of the "cheap" oils are merely a brand name oil in a bottle with a different sticker on the outside. If I remember right, the Advance Auto oil is really Havoline. If you do some looking around and talking at your local auto parts store, they may know who makes what. It is a way to save a few bucks. Same oil, different price.
February 8, 2009i use mobile 1 too. i only have 40k so far on my tahoe but my previous ride was a yukon that ran 100K with mobile 1. i had my engine scoped before i sold it and there was hardly any deposits in there.
