    Oooooo boy..... :D

    Asking us what brand oil is best......is like asking YOU what brand underware you prefer. It's all personal preference.

    Do you like firm fitting skivvies or do you like baggie ones?

    (laugh...sorry, I'm in that kinda weird mood)

    I've been running Mobile 1 for years and I've stuck with it. No reason to change to anything else. I'm sure all the synthetic oils are similar and very good.

    Mobil 1 is fine, I used it for years on various vehicles. I now use Pennzoil Platinum which oil studies I have show is doing a good job.

    eordonez, go ahead and put it in at your next oil change interval. No reason to wait. I went 1500 miles on the original fill and then changed to Pennzoil Platinum.
