So, if money wasn't a issue; which blend would you folks choose

Motorcraft blend
Pennzoil "GOLD" blend
Maxlife blend

Other blends I'm missing

Just wondering as some folks use synblend sand some people use full synthetic

Pennzoil because they are 50% synthetic. Ed

MaxLife blend; tried it for the first time in my Infiniti and I'm impressed by how smooth & quiet the engine is.

None. Why go second class when one can go 1st class. Assuming your engine is sound.

They're all good syn blends, and all three of them will easily do the job in my Fusion for 7,500 miles, plus..

.. in fact, I currently have MaxLife 5w30 in my Fusion, with about 7400 miles on it, and will be changing the oil this weekend. MaxLife is going in for next fill, so I'll say MaxLife in answer to your question, since I have it on hand.

They are all good oils, but considering you can get two 5 quart jugs of Mobil 1 from Walmart for $11/each after rebate,
which I've always gotten, it's a no brainer. Otherwise just buy the least expensive one.

Look at it this way. In the juice aisle, they offer juice blends next to the 100% juice. Which would you buy? smile

My order of choice:

1. Maxlife

2. Pennz

3. Moto

Since Grp III syn is so cheap these days either AMIR or in store brands, why even bother with a blend?

Maxlife for me, although if I had a Ford there is something appealing about MC in a Ford.
