If you had to use only one motor oil for the rest of your life you would choose...

I've been using Red Line 0w-30 for a long time with excellent UOA's. It's an American company and I buy it from a family owned and run business, Fallbrook Oil Company in Fallbrook, CA. They carry the whole Red Line inventory and offer good discounts. When I visit there the owner and his son and I solve all the world's problems until the next visit. It's more of a get together of old friends then just going shopping.

Brand....gas or diesel

I didn't consider weight really but I would think a 5-30 would cover most needs.

As long as Mobil offers their rebates Mobil 1 is my favorite oil grin. Seriously with our Ford EcoBoost Explorer the lower calcium and higher magnesium additives in Mobil 1 appear more beneficial to limiting LSPI with turbo direct injected engines. And besides at Walmart, other than QSUD and SuperTech Synthetic, Mobil 1 is usually the least expensive synthetic oil, and it's usually not much more than QSUD. For now I'll stick with Mobil 1 for the EB Explorer. For my 2 older vehicles price rules using quality brand oils thumbsup.
