    Whichever one you change at a regular interval (which was 3,000 miles in the Honda that I used to own).

    The best oil is the one on sale. The key is to change the oil out at the required intervals. Oil is basically oil. Just do what's required and your truck will last a long and healthy life.

    Consumer reports did a thing on this a long time ago

    Pennzoil was the winner

    bobistheoilguy is way over hyped anymore, anymore it isn't anything more than a bunch of moes who all have their favorite based on personal preference only

    In the old days with the original Bob it was indeed the final word on stuff
