I'm not.... people that buy Amsoil, Redline, Rotella, Shaeffer's, etc. are probably going to be running longer OCIs than people running PYB or PP, thus doing fewer changes per year.

+1...and is Formula Shell included in the Pennzoil numbers?

I'd also say not to count the same poster using the same brand oil in the same year etc.

Top 5 were no surprise, being the major brands that are the most trusted. Also no surprise that SuperTech was the most popular store brand. Looks like a pretty accurate survey to me.

Thanks for the effort and hard work!

I am confused as to why not count the UOAs for the year and assume that the most UOA'd oil is the most popular?


Is it easy for the mod's to give a count of UOAs from new year to year end? ( new threads )

Still enough, thanks for the thread!

Ironic! I just shifted from Mobil 1 to Peak--obviously because of price issues. Peak is new on the Puerto Rico motor oil market but, since it meets the "SM" classification I went for it ($4.28/qt., including tax). Whenever you can research the Peak brand, please post whatever you find out, "BITOG"!
THANK YOU KIND, dude! BTW, M1's price has skyrocketed to $7.48/qt., with tax. I do 4 vehicles (wife's, mother's, sister's and my baby, an '04 flawless 350Z), so I tried to $ave $ome moolah...I hope I won't regret it in the future...
Thanks again!

WOW! thanks for the info...
I to am really surprised Pennzoil is at the top... That just happens to be one of the cheaper in price found at wally world.

even tho I have heard some use the SS brand, I just don`t get that fuzzy feeling about it. just assuming walmarts buying practices are true for the oil as well, what are they leaving out of it?

so far since I`ve been away from using Amsoil, I have been using Valvoline, Castrol, and M1...

I can't stand pennzoil,sorry. I had 2 cars that i used that stuff in and it went through more oil,changed to castrol and the problem went away..very odd.The cars did not use oil until pennzoil went in.
I'm a castrol oil or quaker state person myself but i bought some shell 5w30 on a great sale price.
FRAM filters only.

Funny how I originally used conventional Castrol oil, switched to Mobil 1, then Valvoline synthetic and now I use Pennzoil Ultra. Almost up the chart!
