I've compiled the results for 2012 from the Post your latest oil change thread.

Just a few notes:
Mobil 1 includes all variations of Mobil 1. I felt that they were all to similar, so I didn't try to separate them.

Also, I didn't include any oils that were only used once.

When brands are combined, Mobil tops the list for 2012 at 223 oil changes, followed by Pennzoil at 168, and Valvoline at 127.

A few questions. Pennzoil YB is listed at #4, and Pennzoil conventional is listed at #23. Would these be the same thing under different names? Also, looking at Valvoline MaxLife at #4, and Valvoline NextGen at #7, does the MaxLife number include NextGen Maxlife?

In any case, thanks for compiling this.

Roughly 1,000 in the poll.
Generally, expensive oils top the list.
I think those who use premium oils like to announce it, and most others could care less.
More accurate and useful data would be from the mfrs. sales.

Yes, this is entirely unscientific, but fun. I found it interesting that there is someone else who used Meijer High Mileage oil besides me.

And out of those 43,653 only 1% are probably regulars and not one post wonders.

You're right. Not being a Pennzoil user I didn't catch that. smile Not really a big difference though if we combine them.

Valvoline Maxlife does not include Nextgen Maxlife. That is how it was done last year, so I kept it the same.

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.

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).

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.

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

What is the definition of a quality product? Or are stating something you have very little knowledge of with the side of your neck?

I believe that in years past that PYB was the winner shows that marketing is finally winning hearts and minds of the average consumer.

It's Takumi. I don't really know what it is, but I think it's made in Japan. Don't know who used it - just that it was used twice.

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


I was also one of those 9! And I was also one of 4 that used Service Pro banana


I believe I used Service pro twice last year. smile

Are there any stats for the duration of the OCIs? Although a pain, it would be interesting to see which oils went the furthest distance.

When compiling the results was the number of oil changes by the same poster taken into account. Or oil changes these taken an individual basis,

Eg an avid M1 fan may have posted 3 oil changes he did family vehicles.
