Please help me choose the best car for my oil

Please help me choose the best car for my oil - 04/01/14 06:47 AM

For years I have observed many people asking stupid questions on this forum about selecting the best oil for the car that they already own. The manufacturer of this car often demanded using inferior oil types such as the 20-grade oils, like 0W20 or 5W20. People are asking about the best 5W20 synthetic every day, or whether it's ok to just pour the superior a 5W30 or even 10W30 oil without voiding the warranty. And then it just struck me: the main problem that we're facing on this forum is that we all chose a wrong car to begin with. Therefore I thought, why not just buy a stash of the best oil ever made, and only after buying the best oil ever made to select the best car that's designed for this oil?

And so, I bought a few bottles of AMSOIL Signature Series 5W30 in advance. I bought the AMSOIL Signature Series synthetic because this is the only real synthetic oil. I know that AMSOIL is superior to those [censored] Group III based oils. The oils that use the inferior group III base stocks are not even real synthetic oils. And you can't even compare Moly-based friction modifiers vs calcium based. Moly is much better, and that's a fact. Moreover, I know that AMSOIL uses the best fresh base stocks instead of the recycled garbage such as the Valvoline Nextgen. Finally, I will never accept using a 5W20 or 0W20 weight oils in my car. It pours like water and everyone knows that the only reason that car manufacturers recommend 20-grade oil is to meet the CAFE fuel efficiency standards.

It should be clear by now why I insist on using AMSOIL Signature Series 5W30. This is the best oil that exists in the world. What I really need right now is to find a car that works best with this oil. There are too many chooses, and so I would appreciate some well thought out suggestions. The number of seats, doors, cylinders, cup holders, or the budget do not matter as long as the car is designed to work with the God's chosen motor oil.

I've literally bought filters on clearance then later when looking at some heap on craigslist thought, well, jeez, this will fit the PF16s I got at that yard sale...

What you need to do is have this thread go on for 10 pages, get lots of suggestions, and then buy the car you *feel* is best for the oil.

I think I have you covered. Using arguably what is known as the best oil in the world, requires a very special car. One that, since the oil will cover all aspects of maintenance, will likely need some help containing all of the horsepower stuffed under the hood. Indeed, this magic elixir of artificial dinosaur remains, can only further help to extend the life of this golden ride by a few hours, perhaps even days.

Viola!

A serious answer to a silly question: anything with a GM 5.3, check out my UOA in that forum. Same oil, great results.

Now that you have bought the best oil in the world, you also have a solemn responsibility to extract the absolute last measure of performance from it so that you are not wasting your money. Just think of all the unfortunate cars that will not be getting the best oil that been entrusted to you. You owe it to them to buy the car with the most shear, sludge, and wear-prone engine that can be found and salve it with the healing balm of your best oil. And if you drain it from your engine so much as ten miles before its last useful goodness is exhausted, you will be severely dealt with, and will lose your permission to buy the best oil.

Any later model naturally aspirated Subaru with an EJ engine. Get a bypass filter and run 25-30k mile intervals. If you have consumption, don't even bother changing the oil.

Got sarcasm, Zako?

Well OK. I guess those who dare to ask for advice here, like they actually want to learn something and properly care for their cars, have offended you.

The old man down at the feed store says you need to add STP and then you can go at least 3500 miles between changes.

I have 2 of these, a 1986 GLHT and a 1987 NA. Will run forever on any oil, even used oil in a pinch. Just change the head gasket every 100k miles or so.



The Omni and Horizon were the first front-wheel drive cars in the Dodge and Plymouth lineup, the first front-wheel drive transverse engine production car in the North American market, and among the first American built front-wheel drive cars to sell in large numbers. The Omni almost reached the 1 million unit mark, but production stopped in 1990; with a total of 961,508 Omni/Horizons assembled.

Which were, of course, attempts by Chrysler to clone the already popular Volkswagen Rabbit. Chrysler purchased Rabbits and disassembled them in order to reverse engineer whatever they could. Chrysler didn't have a four cylinder engine they could use at first, so they purchased Rabbit engines for several years until they could build an engine of their own.

I owned a 1979 model, a two-tone green four door. It was without a doubt the worst quality vehicle I have ever owned. Except for the Volkswagen engine, that wasn't too bad.

Great thread, and I've nearly posted same before...if I buy a case of TGMO, does that justify me buying a BRZ Subaru ?

Had similar thoughts at work yesterday when one of my co-workers was talking about his dyno forays...in my words, he'd achieved "tyre pressure boost crossover"...more pressure in his manifold than in his tyres...32psi in his Mitsubishi on E85.

The Dodge Omni/Plymouth Horizon was designed by Chrysler Europe, the former Simca and Rootes; most of the engineering appears to have been done in France, where Simca made best-sellers and the inspiration for the Volkswagen Rabbit.

(Full story on its development - as told by the design team).
http://www.allpar.com/omni/horizon-c2.html

With the 2.2 liter engine and a manual transmission, they were quick, but as economy cars, they did not have a reputation for speed. The Omni GLH and GLHS would change that - for those in the know.

Check it out. Facts are facts....

I often peruse craigslist looking at Fords for my FL-400S and other equivalent oil filters. I do not have a ford.

2013, year after the world was supposed to end in 2012. We live on a borrowed time. Sounds like we just started 4th month of that already.

Tire pressure-boost crossover.
Now that's a good one.



As far as the omni goes I had one. Great little car. 5 speed,2.2 engine. My girl at the time drove it without oil. She pulled in an I could hear the top end clacking really badly so I asked her how
On its sounded like that.
A week or so she says,I was working out of town at the time. So I pop the hood,no oil shows on the dipstick. I put 4 litres in.
She drove that car for 3 more years til she rolled it.
Its funny you know. There was a time in my life where vehicle maintenance was a whenever type thing,and my vehicles still went into spaceship type mileages. Now I obsess about it and they don't seem to last any longer.
