This. The truth is that any oil that meets the manufacturer’s specs and is changed at a reasonable interval will keep your engine running fine. Any performance or wear differences will be so small as to be insignificant. It’s human nature - we feel better when it’s Mobil 1 under the hood but the engine doesn’t care if it’s Royal Purple full syn or Supertech dino.

Note that I didn’t say there’s no difference - just that whatever variance exists is insignificant over the lifetime of the vehicle. In other words, unless something else is wrong, your Blackstone report will come back with everything within specs no matter what you use, and that’s all that matters, right?

Willing to listen if anyone can cite legitimate evidence to the contrary.

P.S. From Blackstone Labs' FAQs:

==
What’s the best oil to use?
Ah, the million dollar question. We are an independent lab, so we don’t make recommendations. It has been our experience that oil is oil, and either petroleum or synthetic-based oil will work well for just about any engine.

Come on, you’re holding out on me. I should use synthetic, right?
Buddy, you should use whatever you want. Synthetic oil won’t guarantee a longer engine life any more than my eating organic food will guarantee I’ll live until I’m 90. We here at Blackstone generally use regular petroleum-based oil because honestly, it works just as well for us.
==

Your truck, your money, your call, but people who make their living analyzing motor oil say it doesn't make a significant difference.

You all change your oil? Kidding..
But I used to just add a quart every 6k in an older v8 and filter once a year and that was good enough.
I go longer than recommended but as long as the oil is brown and liquid, the engine is ok in my opinion.

Mobil 1 synthetic at every years inspection, usually 20-25k miles. Been doing that for as long as they have made the stuff. One year I forgot, so it was probably 45k miles.
