    Spoke to a woman at Blackstone Labs. They test oils and stuff, don't sell or promote any products. She suggested that Mobil 1 is notin' special, kinda' like Fram oil filters. Highly promoted, but full of sound and fury. but I suspect that Mobil 1 is a bit better than FRAM.
    Condemer Reports, (OK, Consumer Reports) regularly test car Batts. Sears Die Hards, AC Delco, Interstate, Auto Zone usually make the top of the list. Will check Condemer Reports for their latest list... Though I recently bought a couple used NAPA, ones dead, and the other weak. Only a year or two old, but wrong time of the year, as when the go dead due to lights left on, (remember, outa' junkyard), they go dead, then freeze. I bought 6, took a chance, 3 came back to life, NAPA Legend, (their best) really weak. I keep about ten vehicles on da raod, so always looking for a break...
    Personally, I like Wally World yellow top, 3 year no - kwestions asked free replacements...

    Wow, that really is a great price. A guy should be able to go 10K or so on an oil change with Valvoline synthetic. That price even rivals Amsoil, as it's about $6 per quart and goes 25K.

    You have 3K burned on your brain, I'm sorry....

    25K all day long no problem, under normal driving conditons. With a bypass system, easily in the 30K+ range.

    People are so scared at extended oil intervals because they have 3K burned on the brain. That is why it is CHEAPER to run synthetic, as long as you actually use the engine's oil life.

    Tons apon tons of oil sampling has been done, in OTR applications guys have gone easily 100K on synthetic like Amsoil.

    I am going to send my first sample in tommorrow from my Dodge Cummins. I love only messing with oil annually!
