Thanks for the effort!

While certainly not reflective of the public at large, it's interesting to see what BITOG'er's are using.

I noticed you have Castrol Edge and Syntec listed separately though, it's the same oil though referred to by different names.

Thank you again. You've inspired me to bother to post my OCI's for 2013. smile

Sure is a big gap between #1 (M1 @ 165) and #2 (PU @ 53). Funny thing is, I still have never used M1.

Are these statistics gathered from the "Post your latest oil change thread?"

Thanks for your hard work. Interesting results.

Thanks everyone for the kind words! You guys are the reason I took the time to put that list together. I really appreciate all the feedback!

Great list, and not surprising that M1 was on the top as far as synthetics, but it WAS surprising to see it on the top overall.

Combining all M1 flavors into one line item is like Ford combining all F-series sales into one line item. smile Not criticising, just being funny.

I'm curious, do you have the data on the different flavors of Mobil 1? I wonder how the results would be different if Mobil 1 was broken out into its different offerings (regular, AFE, EP, HM, etc).

Yes, this will inspire me to keep my 2013 oil changes posted and current. I have two coming up later this month.

No, sorry I don't. It was done the same way last year so I just kept it the same. IIRC most of the time people just put down M1 or Mobil 1.

I was one of the few 9 people that used Havoline last year!

Woot!

By the way does Valvoline Next Gen mean Next Gen Max Life too?

I was expecting Schaeffer oil to be much higher on the list.
