1994 Buick Park Avenue 79,200 (Bought 01/08 with 28,600mi on OD)
4 qt. Amsoil SSO 0W-30
.75 qt Mobil 1 10W-30 (for quiet valves on startup)
Fleetguard LF3554 (oversized--designed for 4.3L V6 used in GM trucks)

I'll probably change this out next fall. Due to weepy valve stem seals, I always have to add 1/2 qt here, 1/2 qt there, so I may never have to actually "change" the oil. Just the filter. ha.

We towed the travel trailer to storage, so the truck will set idle for most of the winter, with only occasional runs. 4.5k on RTS and a Stratopore.
Switched to M1 15-50 and an FL820s. Figured what the heck, Frank runs it exclusively, it gets good marks here, and I have a boat load of the red cap from K-Mart clearance. The truck has 137k on it now with an average of about 4k a year towing the TT.

I dumped the AMSOIL AFL out of my Jetta today. Was at the track and shifted 3-2 rather than 3-4 at about 7K RPM. Made a bit of a funny noise after that session but nothing that anyone could really pinpoint, so I dumped the oil to look for metal in it. Didn't see anything interesting, so refilled with M1 0W-40 from the local Autozone as I didn't have any AFL on hand. This is the first time I've filled with anything but the AMSOIL, not particularly happy about it, but ultimately doesn't matter.

Ran PP 5w20 for 6k oci in my Jeep Wrangler. (Total of 29k miles, and I go by the OLM) Changed it today to Mobil 1 5w20. I've been runing Ford Motorcraft oil filters on the Jeep as recommended by Jeepers on Jeep JK owners had been having trouble with M1 filter anti-drainback valve and getting bad noise on starts. I experienced this, as well the one time I ran that filter. The Motorcraft filter works well, and they are cheap. I bounce back and forth between M1 and PP, primarily going with M1 for winter. I guess I believe it flows better cold, but I don't really know if that is the case.

This engine sounds the same with either oil, so other than the aforementioned perception, I have no other ideas about which is better. I've had great luck with M1 on other engines for years, and I see so many good UOAs on PP, so that's why the waffling. (Plus, I occasionally score PP at a low price.)

I've got M1 5w30 in my Solstice now, as well, with a Supertech cartridge filter. I go by the OLM or 1 year, whichever comes first. This time, the year came first. I've got 24k on this car, but didn't put many miles on it last year. It went about 5k on PP 5w30 last time, and the OLM was at 48%. Same deal in my head between the two brands of oil. Again, I hear know audible difference between the two oils. I had a UOA done on PP a couple years ago and it was excellent. I also had trouble with a PurOne oil filter. The media began to deteriorate at about 4 or 5k on the oil. Supertechs have done very well. I ran one to around 8k miles and it looked great.
15 Ford Transit 3.5 Ecoboost 29k
08 Jeep Wrangler 3.8 98k
01 Ford F150 Crew 5.4 62k
99 Mercedes-Benz E430 Sport 66k
