Ok im puzzled once again. What are we doing here? Everything always ends the same way. "Stand in the oil isle, blindfold self, grab for oil, use selected oil" because in all doubt it doesnt matter. Oh, as long as its the cheap one with a rebate! Uoa/noa thread is a ruse? The concept of how an oil is holding up to your engine is deterrent basically. I just want the better oil, and apparently it just doesnt exist. $90 for a full syn oil change at the ford dealer. Over 60 for syn blend. I can buy full syn oil and mc filters off the shelf at walmart for half that or less with rebaits and still have enough money to do an uoa if i choose. The reason im here is (What oil on the shelf at wm is better) if you can point me in that direction. Thanks. But there isnt an answer, never was, never will be apparently, so I figure that doing it my way "wrong or not" I will feel better about what I paid for.
