I use whatever the dollar store has in stock and stock up on fram filters when there's a sale. Works great.

Using Pennzoil Platinum Euro LX 0W30 since I bought a stash last time it was on sale. Figured the 0W would be good for our -40C winters.

Rotella

I run Rotella in any vehicle that doesn't have a warranty. Ran it in all of my motorcycles too.

I play it safe due to the fact I push my engine pretty hard. Lots of blow-by in the oil. Plus I never drive more than 10K miles in a year.

Costco now has 2 5qt jugs fully synthetic 5w-30 for $24.

Internet basicly shows Amazon, walmart,costco...all made by same company. Its pretty cool stuff.

I go around 8k miles per change jut because its only $12 per change but would not be afraid to go more. I have 250k miles now and she is running good.(I purchased at 145k 10 years ago.

5w-30 Mobile 1 + BG MOA. Ya know, it's over kill with the BG.
After reading the results on some members on here who has going through Blackstone labs and graciously shared the results, it's usually not about the oil. Most results came back more mileage can be safely added to the existing oil change. Of course, the health of the engine comes into play. How good are your piston rings, valve guides, bearings, etc.
About to make the switch to Costco synthetic 5w-30.

Project Farm on YouTube did some oil testing and it was a great set of videos.

I have no clue what he does for a living but his videos are very good IMO and so far all are useful in making decisions.

Max life 10w-30 full synthetic. Have also used Liqui Moly Motor Oil Saver every other year in the crankcase. Probably the best oil I have used since ownership in 2006 was Pennzoil Ultra in 10w-30. Averaging about 3000 miles a year now.
