    There are some cool commercials out there. I like the Nissan ones for their trucks. Not saying I'd buy one, but they are creative.... better then the Chevy one where the guy is thinking of his dads Impala and buys a new plastic one... that one simply annoys me! I don't why but it does.....

    Personally I wouldn't use Castrol if you paid me, but I like their one with the 70 Boss Mustang. Hits my thoughts right on the money... sweet car too.

    Is there any specific reason(s) you wouldn't use it if somebody "paid" you?

    Just curious.

    I use it and never have a problem with it darn near 250,000 miles on my old 350 with it and its still runs good and the compresion is still around 60 per hole. Seen to many scored pistons and bearing with Valvoline and Pennsoil is just plain sludge in a bottel.

    Pennsoil owns Castrol... and while they are somewhat different. Pennsoil is way old time tech... talk about real dino oil. I know I did the old school racer's test between Valvoline and Castrol years ago and the valvoline piston looked much better, but inreality I can't say that proves much. I think if you keep things wet in there you won't have much of a problem. I know a couple guys running fords (Modifieds and Clevelands) and also a couple guys running Buicks who have had problems while using Castrol, but those motors also aren't known for real great oiling either. Both switched to expensive synthetics and are fine now.

    I have ripped apart motors using just about every kind of oil and IMO the Valvoline motors looked the best if you are looking at regular oil. Never seen a real bad Castrol motor or anything, but just seems like those motors are a bit more worn after a summer of runs. I'd really like to talk to some circle track or sprint fellows cause those guys crank the piss outta them motors. Both the guys I know who run modified are Valvoline guys too.

    OK Leadfoot... You're right about the "paid" deal I guess LOL [​IMG]. I'm not ready to turn down a good sponsership deal [​IMG]

    I guess mostly it comes down to I'm a huge Valvoline guy and it has never failed me yet... through ponchos, Fords, chev's, mopars... it has done me well. [​IMG]

    Pennzoil may be old time tech, but with a 1989 S-10 w/a 4.3 and 298k yes 298k and ORIGINAL motor and nothing but Pennzoil, I have to believe its ok.

    Then theres the 92 s-10 4.3 w/ 230k and Pennzoil.

    I dont know much about how/what/why on oil, and dont pretend to, but It works for me.

    My .03,
    John
