Which one would you choose? OCI would be about 10-13K. I've seen plenty of M1 EP UOAs but not so much on Castrol EP.

I am also interested to know, based on what I read Castrol EP seems better.
M1 EP SN version is great, but not the SM version.

Depends all on price I think, providing they both meet your engine's requirements. If one is far cheaper, I'd bet happily that the price difference would not equate equally to performance difference.

I've got an old post with a BC0w30 UOA, on the same report the previous UOA was Castrol edge gold ext 5w30. Very good numbers, I'd post the link but it's a pain on my phone. Easy to search though.

Castrol comes in sweet golden bottles and, as we all know, gold is better than silver.

They are both quality products when it comes time to buy more oil the one with the cheaper price gets the wink. Right now its Mobil at $22.88.

At a second glance its Castrol GTX MAGNATEC 5W-30 Full Synthetic Motor Oil, 5 QT $19.88.

Well they just keep popping up this morning.
Havoline ProDS Synthetic Motor Oil 10W30 $16.73 I'd run that in a heart beat in my Toyota for summer oil.

Wonder if Havoline has a rebate on that?

Havoline is a great oil, no doubt about that. A correction though on your statement, the Pro DS 0w-20 and 5w-30 grades are dexos gen2 certified. The other grades do not carry that cert according to their website. Do your jugs have the gen2 logo on them?

Well I tell you when they get here on Friday. Its not a deal breaker at $16.73 a jug delivered.
That will be my summer oil for the Toyota next spring.

Either way, it's good oil. Havoline doesn't get much play here on BITOG. Much of that is because WalMart doesn't carry it and they don't advertise like some of the others do. Chevron is no slouch when it come to oil and other products
